Do you want to call him Romeo? Or her Tiger Lily? Choosing a name for your new baby should never be taken lightly. Research has shown that a name can have a significant effect on a person's life; while the right name can contribute to personal and professional success, the wrong one can often lead to a lifetime of unhappiness. The minefield of potential problems can be enormous and questions that must be asked include: Does the chosen name go well with the surname? Do the initials spell anything unfortunate? Will your child be teased at school? Will the name grow with your child? Is it a name that will date?
