It just doesn’t seem right to have a baby blog name that’s not oozing with cuteness, but it can be quite a challenge to come up with a creative name when you’ve got your mind on a million other things during pregnancy or after childbirth.
It takes a lot of effort and commitment to publish and maintain a blog, so it’s worth getting a really awesome name that you’re proud of, as you’ll be sharing it with all your friends and family.
You’ll be surprised at the number of terribly named blogs with owners who cringe every time someone asks, “why did you call it that?”, so don’t make the same mistake and choose a cool name that literally wows everyone who hears it.
Okay, so how do you find a name that’s as cute as your baby?
Naming Ideas from a Blog’s Plan
The first thing you need to do is to assess the plan for the blog and consider any specific goals, themes and unique ideas for it.
A blog that documents the experiences of a new family in the making, and talks about the adventures of first-time parents may require a different naming strategy compared to a baby-focused blog that only has cute pictures of your cuddly one.
By thinking through what you hope to achieve from the blog, and the content you’ll be posting in it, you’ll automatically start to confirm it’s identity and appeal, which in turn allows you to select an appropriate naming strategy.
Simple Descriptive Names
For example, if the only purpose of having the blog is for you to post pictures of your baby to it, so that you don’t have to send friends and family emails with countless high res photos that take ages to download, then a standard approach is to keep it simple with names like:
- Baby Jane
- Our Baby Jane
- Gorgeous Jane
- Jane’s Photos
- Jane’s Baby Pics
(Note: replace ‘Jane’ with the name of your baby)
Clearly, these blog names are not very exciting, or cute, and unless your baby has a very unusual name, there are bound to be plenty of other blogs for babies with the same name as yours.
In order to find a really cute name, you need to get creative and tap on the wittier side of you or your other half to make up a name that’s meaningful, sounds good and simply awesome.
One of the core decisions to be made is whether you want to include the name of your baby in the blog’s name.
Puns and Words with Double Meanings
If you do, then you’ve already confirmed one of the words in the name and you can proceed to build the other words around it.
For example, there is a baby blog called ‘Harvesting Kale’ that obviously plays on the fact that Kale is a name but also a vegetable, and so ‘harvesting’ naturally emerges as a witty word to pair with the baby’s name.
Alliterative Baby Blog Names
Sometimes, it’s almost impossible to find words that have a deep double meaning to combine with your baby’s name. An alternative naming method is to use alliteration and choose another word that starts with the same letter as your baby’s name so that the combination has a rhythmic feel when it is pronounced.
For instance, a the blog for baby Charlie may be called ‘Chubby Charlie’, or the name for Anna’s blog may be called ‘Adorable Anna’, and baby Greta’s journeys may be shared in a blog called ‘Grooming Greta’.
Build the Blog’s Name Around the Baby’s Name
Baby blog naming is a lot more focused and generally easier when parents opt to include the baby’s actual name into the blog’s name. As you can see, it’s possible to create really cute blog names by using your baby’s name and other relevant areas to get ideas and inspiration.
By doing this, the name you come up with will probably be more relevant, unique, and memorable. All in all, it’ll be a more meaningful name that’s perfectly suited to your little one.
Happy naming! And parenting.
