DECIDING on a baby name is a massive task for any parent to be, whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl.
And like fashion, beauty and even places, baby names also have their own trends, which change over time.
Recently, research found a list of very unusual names set to be massive in 2017, with celebrities having an impact on the list.
But what is the latest baby name trend? Well, it looks like double-barrelled baby names are making a comeback.
Whether it’s for a baby boy or a baby girl, double-barrelled baby names are an easy way of making your child’s name just that little bit more special.
But if you’re still not convinced, take a look at these top double-barrelled baby name ideas.
But – like any baby name trend – mums are divided over the idea of the hyphen.
One mum took to forum MumsNet to share her experience, revealing that she used the double-barrelled name as a way of showing tribute to her late mum.
The user wrote: “Our daughter is Nicola-Robyn. Nicola is after my mum who passed away 18 months before she was born and Robyn was mine and OH’s name of choice. We call her Robyn or Nicola-Robyn as we thought just Nicola might be hard on my dad.”
However, others are not keen on the idea, with one mum commenting: “To be honest I’m not a fan off double barrelled names, although that’s typically cause Im sick of May, Rose & Grace being tacked on to the end of basically every name, especially the more popular ones like Lexi, Lily, Sophia, Olivia etc.”
But what do you think – are double-barrelled baby names for you or not?
