How to choose a name for future child

At all times names were given special, nearly mystical value. For example, in the east the baby at the birth was given two names at once to confuse evil forces. One of names was false, and another – true. Notable grandees of Japan "awarded" children with impartial names nicknames "lame" or "foundling" to frighten off dark spirits.

The set of the signs and superstitions connected with names existed and exists to this day. It is considered that it is impossible to name the child of one of parents or close relatives as the guardian angel will not be able to protect from troubles and misfortunes of two in one house. And practice, by the way, shows that people with such names as Boris Borisovich or Alexander Aleksandrovich, grow up whimsical, unbalanced and unlucky.

According to the calendar

The tradition returns to call the child according to the calendar. The calendar is a calendar of the Saints esteemed in a certain day. According to church canons, happy and unhappy names do not happen, and there are names which do not correspond to a name of the Saint esteemed this day. And Evgeny or Valery is not guilty to call the girl by a man's name at all, for example. Many Christian names in the calendar have both a men's, and female form. Even such as Anatoly, Kirill and Pavel, are applicable to a feminine gender – Anatoly, Kirill and Pavel. If there is no name of your child in the calendar, then at a baptism it will be called another which is close on sounding, for example, Karina – Kira, Diana – Darya, Ruslan – Roman. Do you want to call the child by rules of the Christmas calendar or to check whether there corresponds your name and names of your relatives to church canons?

According to common sense

To those parents, that do not trust in horoscopes, signs also do not try to correspond to church rules and orthodox canons, it is possible to advise only one – follow common sense when choosing a name for the child.

  • Choose not a really exotic name. Give preference to that which will be in consonance with a middle name and a surname.
  • If the surname or a middle name are difficult in pronunciation, then the name has to be beautiful, but short.
  • The name of the boy is a middle name of his future children. Remember that.
  • Speak a full name, its short and caressing option. Do you like it? Choose that to liking to you not to say in the future on hundred times a day its full option.

The most important when choosing a name for the child is to rely on the opinion, but not on opinion of numerous grandmothers, grandfathers, relatives and other "advisers".
