Have you been struggling to name your baby? Maybe there’s a name you love but your partner hates, or maybe you’ve named your baby and you think you made a mistake, what can you do?
Listen to today’s podcast! We have such have such a fun show for this week’s episode of Yoga | Birth| Babies. I invited Sophie Kihm, baby naming expert and editor in chief of Nameberry to join me. She has such an interesting approach to choosing baby names. Though I’ve already named my children, I found the baby naming quiz to provide some pretty accurate results. I fell into the Bohemian name category, no surprise to me with children named Shay and Sage. We go over how the Nameberry DNA quiz works, use Sophie’s expertise as a therapist to discuss working through a name dispute with your partner, how and when to change your baby’s name, the history and popularity of names and more. I think you’re going to get a lot out of this episode and hopefully even lift some of the stress of choosing your baby’s name.
