Most Popular Baby Names in 2018
While there’s a lot of different stress that you’ll encounter when you’re pregnant with your baby (especially your first!) - there’s one that’s harmless, but just as stressful nonetheless. And this would be the choosing of your precious baby’s name! As it’s a name that will be stuck to them for the rest of their lives - you’ll want to pick one that isn’t necessarily just trendy now, but will age well too. This means to say that you won’t name them something that you thought was ‘pretty cool at the time’, only to be filled with regret 10 or even 20 years down the track.
