Other executive baby name examples
You don’t have to name your kiddo after a CEO to help him get a good start in life. Trendy names are a fine choice, but most feel that classic or traditional names can really help a child as he grows up and fills out college or job applications. A cleverly-spelled name may help your child stand apart from his peers, but may not be the best tactic as some feel that unusual spellings can be hard on the child and those who are trying to spell or pronounce his name.
Try these steadfast traditional names on for size for your baby-to-be.
