Darien, CT (PressExposure) October 30, 2008 -- BabyBox.com, a luxury retailer of high-end baby bedding, crib bedding, bassinets, baby furniture and baby gifts, presents tips for choosing a baby name, offering a superior collection of personalized, monogrammed and customizable kids and baby gifts that celebrate the importance of a babyâs name while reinforcing the development of a childâs own identity.
"Naming a baby is a very special and often challenging and time-consuming task that parents will face, but once decided, itâs a celebratory occasion," says Katherine Type, founder of BabyBox.com. âToday, celebrities are not the only parents choosing unique baby names or even made up names. Remember those bicycle name plates? They were fine until you tried to find an uncommon name. At BabyBox.com, even unusual names or names with unconventional spellings can be customized on most gift items.â
Parents who are putting off the process of choosing a name can take heart with some simple steps to get them started. The first step usually evolves from a process of eliminating names. Knowing which names are not desirable is an important step toward narrowing a list of possibilities. If a non-traditional name is sought, the logical place to start would be to rule out the most common names. Next, write down all family names, if tradition is important or if honoring a beloved relative is a prerogative. Lastly, take the final list of baby names and sleep on them, consider any difficulties a child might have with spelling, initials, double meanings and gender identification.
Whether taking the traditional or non-traditional route to naming a baby, BabyBox.com has the essential customizable, personalized and monogram luxury baby gifts that children will treasure as their very own.
Personalization starts from day one, when baby is brought home in monogrammed Pima cotton layette sets or bib sets. Documenting a babyâs firsts and milestones gets customized with a wide array of baby books, albums and keepsake boxes, including âA Baby Book for Youâ with artworks by Ralph Caldecott, Kate Greenaway, Walter Crane, and others from the golden age of children's book illustration. The book includes a section about why a childâs name was chosen.
