Will You Have Baby Name Regret? Find Out the Risk Factors -- and How to Prevent It!

However parents go about choosing a name for their baby-to-be -- family name, foreign name, trendy name, artist-inspired name, or just plain-Jane name -- it can be a really tough decision to make. In fact, over 8% parents aren't happy with their choice, according to a recent survey from yourbabydomainname.com.

Baby name regret was most common (53%) among parents who chose monikers that were considered "fashionable" at the time of their baby's birth and for those who were sorry that their child's name had become a "common" name (32%), according to the Huffington Post.

So before you name your little bundle of joy Bear Blu or Pilot Inspektor, find out how other parents chose their child's name, get inspiration from our BabyNamer, master how to break the baby name deadlock, and learn how you can avoid big-time baby name regret. Don't say we didn't warn you!
