Name Suggestions for Your Baby Boy  

One of the thrills of pregnancy is anticipating the gender of the baby and picking a name. If in this case we are expecting a baby boy, we have to pick a name that will make him stand out. The good news is that there are many names that we can choose but if we want our kids to be proud of their names, we have to pick something that is beyond ordinary but not too entertaining because either way, they will be laughed at.


We have to remember that names have character traits and somehow it will stick to them for the rest of their lives. Choosing unusual, difficult to spell and hard to pronounce names is the fad here in Singapore these days. Though it is our prerogative to pick whatever name we want for our son, we have to think of the future and imagine – would they be happy to be introduced or not?

If at this moment we haven’t picked the right name yet, we can continue our search and consider the 2014 top baby boy names. Here’s the list:
