Finding the perfect name for your little one can be tough.
After all, there's a lot to consider.
Like, you may want it to be something unique to your little one. But not so unique that they end up spelling it out for the rest of their lives.
But, also, you may be keen for it not to be so common that they will end up sharing a name with half of their classmates when they reach school-age.
And, of course, you want it to match with you and your partner's surname.
While parents-to-be are drawing inspiration from just about anywhere nowadays, it turns out there are some absolute deal breakers when it comes to finding the ever-elusive perfect name.
According to a ChannelMum poll of 1,200 parents [via Huffington Post], one out of three parents said they would rule out any moniker that is rising within the baby naming charts.
And nearly 75 per cent of couples would refuse to pick a baby name if it was the same as one of their partner's former partners, while two in five would stay away from any names that were the same as a famous child.
Meanwhile, one in five couples refused to pick a nam that referenced a sports team - and 24 per cent wouldn't pick a name used by the royal family.
ChannelMum.com baby name expert SJ Strum said:
“Names carry a lot of weight and have a very strong impact on how other people perceive your child.
“Even if you love how a name looks and sounds, you can’t separate it from the people it reminds you of.”
