 to call the baby a name and surname

How to call the child's name and surname

When you select a name to be considered, it will be in harmony with and surname of the child. Otherwise, you may get a pretty funny and even absurd combinations. Especially strange sounds blend with the traditional foreign names and surname. If you can not guess by the name, the sex of the person it belongs to, it is better not to give the child the so-called "universal" names - Zhenya, Sasha and Valia. Otherwise possible misunderstandings when the boy will be taken in absentia for the girl, and vice versa.

If the name for the baby yet, you can choose, and with the name have different options (for example, you can give your child the name of the mother, not the father), the first name change is unlikely. So often parents try to choose a child's name to his patronymic. This often pay attention to the name and patronymic of harmony in terms of, for example, numerology. Those who believe in the values ​​of the names, trying to find such a combination of first name and patronymic, which will be mutually reinforcing.

Equally important is the harmonious sound combinations. For example, it is assumed that if the father's name is Alexander, the children will suit names such as Andrew, Alexander Dmitriev, Sergey, Eugene, Michael, Ivan Paul, Cyril, Mary, Catherine, Anastasia, Ksenia and Olga, Julia, Elena. If the name of the father - Dmitry, the child can be called Alexander, Maxim, Daniel, Ivan, Yegor, Nikita, Artem, Daria, Elizabeth, Julia, Pauline, Anna and Alexander. A patronymic O. (O.) is combined with the names of Vladislav, Oleg, Igor, Nikita, Anton Denis, Maxim, Artem, Cyril, Victoria, Ian, Christina, Pauline, Anastasia.

It is better if at the junction name and patronymic is not a large number of consonants - such a combination is difficult to say. Not a very good combination when the first name starts with that letter, which ends with the name of, for example, or Mikaelyan Viktor Romanovich. By short name is suitable long middle name, and vice versa, short patronymic can choose a longer name.


The name of the child and parents' names

It is believed that a well-chosen name will provide your child with understanding parents. Experts attribute this to the fact that the names sound similar sets of people "on the same wavelength", thereby ensuring intimacy. It is difficult to say whether this really is. Yet many couples are trying to give the child a name, in which at least a pair of letters will coincide with parent names. And best of all, if a mother and father will be the same one vowel and one consonant letter.

For example, Elena can call his son Leonid, Leon, Eugene and her daughter Nellie suitable names, Svetlana, Lada. Michael can give the names of the daughter Maria, Marina, Lyudmila and Svetlana and son - Alexander, Alex, Myron and Ilya. Searching for a name for the baby, which will be combined with the sounds of his father's and mother's name - an interesting activity you can devote a lot of time.


Names inherited

Distributed tradition of giving children names in honor of their parents, grandparents or other relatives. This custom has its advantages and disadvantages. It is believed that this tradition allows to raise children who feel protected - they are part of an old family, even the clan, and no one can hurt them. In addition, a child with childhood formed a certain model of strong family relationships.

On the other hand, it often happens that others expect that the child will repeat the fate of a family member, after whom he was named, and will demonstrate the same character traits. Such expectations can limit the number of the child, they do not give full play to his personality. If the child is named after his father, or his mother, he is doomed to be constantly in the family on the sidelines - have little chance of such a child to become a leader with an active lifestyle.

There are many signs, associated with the names of "inherited". For example, it is believed that it is impossible to name a child after a living relative, because in that case the baby will wait unhappy fate - all the luck he allegedly shared with the senior owner of the name. Some believe that the child is named in honor of a deceased relative, repeating his fate. Well, if fate was happy, and if the person died tragically early and better in his honor child did not call.


The time of birth and the name of

Often, the choice of a name depends on the time of year when the baby was born. It is believed that the winter people are born with a hard and severe character. This may mitigate the severity of the soft, viscous and melodious sounds of the names without the "C" and "P". Suit names Olga Alla, Michael, Nikita.

Those born in the spring of different flexible and sometimes even unscrupulous character. To balance such a character, the name should choose harder. For example, the suit names Grigory Dmitriev, Marina, Catherine, Jeanne.

Born in the summer is usually cheerful and kind, it is very important to feel loved. "Summer" children suit names like Constantine, Roman, Vyacheslav, Margarita, Sofia, Tatiana.

"Autumn" children of non-contentious, they live primarily in the mind, not the senses. The nature of the names of these children have practically no effect, so you can call the baby born in the fall as you like.


Name Meaning

In the old days, giving the name of the child, the parents certainly pay attention to its meaning and waited for Alexander to grow the defense and Sophia is a wise woman. Often, however, the names have multiple values, and quite controversial.

In addition, experts point out that the common name, the less its value is expressed. That is why when choosing a name people are increasingly paying attention to its euphony and associations connected with it, and only then on the origin and original meaning.
