Choosing the perfect name
Choosing the perfect name can be difficult as you do not know if it is the right match until baby’s arrival. Whether you want to keep it traditional or make it modern- it’s the thought that counts. Take your time- there’s no need to rush it!
The law is on your side and you have up to six weeks to decide upon a name once your baby is born. According to British law, you are able to change the name on the birth certificate up until baby’s first birthday.
There are also many ways to help you make your decision. Use multiple sources and keep a list of your top picks, that way it will be easier to narrow down once it’s time to make the big decision.
