In our opinion, one of the most exciting things about having a new baby is thinking of the baby's name. The possibilities are endless. Do you go for a family name, like your mom or lola's name?

We're not sure if there's a list for the most popular baby names locally but we remember when Marimar and Thalia were popular among baby girls. Maybe this year it will be Manuel, Grace, or Rodrigo due to the hotly-contested national elections. 

There's a lot of power in a name and your child will carry his or her name for the rest of their life.  According to a Business Insider article, a person's name can be linked to their success. For example, a study done in Germany showed that people with noble sounding last names (Kasier for emperor and Konig for king) were in more managerial positions compared to people with more common-sounding names (Koch for cook or Bauer for farmer). Too much pressure? Let's remember at the end of the day, the most important thing is to give your child a name you love, and for sure, your child will love it too.
