A trend these days that has become quite common among parents is to give your child a name that is as unique as possible. For the most part this can actually do you a lot of good since your child would be able to stand out in a crowd, but sometimes parents go a little overboard in this area. This leads to a great deal of baby names parents regret, and regretting something as intrinsic to your child’s identity as their name is something that you are most likely going to be extremely concerned about at the end of the day.
This is why classic baby names are still really great. Names like Daniel and Bradley are popular for a reason. They give a certain kind of image when people think about them, and just because they are classic does not mean that they are common. While you are probably going to run into quite a few Daniel’s and Brad’s in your day to day routine, you would still be able to tell them apart because of the fact that the name is not common enough for you to know more than three or four people at most who have these names and you would probably know at most one or two people very closely who have names that can be considered classic.
The urge to give your child a name that is very different from what you have been hearing all your life is quite understandable. After all, children are extensions of ourselves, and when we try to make them unique we are in a lot of ways trying to make ourselves unique as well. Still, going for a classic can be simple as well as efficient.
