How do mothers come up with names for their little munchkins? Having no children (yet) I’ve heard from friends and family that sometimes the names just hit you and they attach to your child. Other times you are grabbing at anything but nothing is sticking. Being childless, unless you count my two cats and one goldfish, I’m pushing hard to give birth to characters. Although they already have their own personalities, moods and, at times, their own language, their names are escaping me.
What about last names? Where do they come from? What about foreign names? How do you make them up? Have you ever been at a lost for a name?
Please share your ultimate wisdom.
