A Child's Name: What does it say about you?

When a child is born, does the name reflects more on you than on them?

Baby Names: What does it say about you?
When a child is born, does the name reflect more on you than on them?
Choosing your child's name is a big decision- after all, they’ll be walking around with it for the rest of his life. You're making the decision because your child can't do it for themselves-but what you choose can say something about your personality.
It’s a huge decision because as your child gets older, the name will also reflect on them- a names sends out such a strong signal before the person even walks even enters a room.
So for a little fun (and there is absolutely no science or fact behind this) we at FFHQ have put together a baby name tell all guide, just for giggles based on our office antics!
If your child has an unusual name, you wish for them to be in the spotlight.
Celeb Baby Names:Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow), Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee), Kal-El (Nicolas Cage)
Over the past few years, more and more parents (and not just celebrities) are choosing offbeat monikers for their little ones. An unusual name has the advantage of making the bearer stand out from the crowd.
If your child has an old-fashioned name, you're on the conservative side.
Celeb baby names:Agnes (Jennifer Connelly), Homer (Richard Gere), Tabitha (Sarah Jessica Parker)
If you choose a creative spelling, you dare to be different.
Celeb baby names:Ryder (Kate Hudson), Rocko (Johnny Knoxville), Zowie (David Bowie)
Many parents are taking a traditional name and putting their own spin on it by changing the spelling. 
If you choose a family name, you're sentimental.
Celeb baby names: Charlie (Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's daughter is named after his brother), Vivienne Marcheline (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's daughter shares her middle name with her maternal grandmother), Ava (Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe's daughter is named after his grandmother).
A pop culture name means you are an absolute fan.
Celeb baby names:Monroe (Mariah Carey), Lennon (Liam Gallagher), Bardot (David Boreanez)
The names Elsa and Olaf have been moving up the ranks with the success of Frozen, and even celebrities use their child's first name to honour a favourite star: Mariah Carey named her daughter Monroe after Marilyn, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher named his son Lennon after John, and Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's daughter Dolly is named after mom's favourite singer, Dolly Parton.
If you name your child after a destination, you're adventurous.
Celeb baby names: Egypt (Alicia Keys), Memphis (Bono), Brooklyn (Victoria and David Beckham)
If you go with a unisex name, you mean to focus on success.
Celeb baby names:Harlow (Nicole Ritchie and Joel Madden; girl), Kelley (Holly Marie Combs; boy), Mason (Kourtney Kardashian; boy)
