What name to give the girl?
Modern parents are serious enough to choose a name for their children. Many choose the name long before the pregnancy. Some - in the first month after birth. However, those and others often face the problem of choosing the most appropriate name for the child. In this article we will talk about choosing a name for a girl.
What name can I give the girl?
In Russia, children were not given names before birth, considering it to be a bad sign, but they nicknamed the little ones in honor of the saints, on the day they were born. Today, few people will worry about the child bore the name of the saint. Nevertheless, the names for girls are chosen with special care so that they are sweet, melodious and feminine.
However, when choosing a child's name, you should follow simple rules, the first of which is to observe the measure. No need to try to find too original name, otherwise the child, growing up, will feel uncomfortable among peers. In the Soviet Union, girls could be called extremely strange by modern standards, for example, Stalin or even Tractor (in honor of the first tractor of the “Belarus” model).At the same time, modern versions with the names Cindy, Cleopatra, or Zabava will also be perceived ambiguously by others. Well, if your daughter's name is simple enough to make it easy to pronounce and remember, there are no problems with writing. On our site there is a good article on the topic of female names.
Name and patronymic of the girl
The second rule when choosing a name - do not forget about the middle name. It is always necessary to adequately assess the patronymic of the child and his future surname. Very often, parents do not pay attention to it, and their daughter suffers because of incoherent combinations throughout her life. For example, Zlata Antonovna or Nika Glebovna sound strange and are perceived ambiguously by others.
At the same time, you can be guided by tips from history. For example, in imperial Russia it was believed that the name of Alexander would fit the patronymic name of Evgenievna, because such a name means “Protector”, and the name Eugene, in turn, is “Noble”.

Rare and beautiful names
In recent years, parents are increasingly departing from standard ordinary names and try to choose the most beautiful and rare name for their child.To give a child such a name, it is worth referring to the Slavic principles or borrow it from another culture. For example, a girl can be called Yaroslav (strong, independent), Eve (live, mischievous), Barbara (protected) or Vasilisa (royal, domineering).
Such female names as Maria, Elizaveta, Polina, Alain, Arina and Catherine are very popular now, as evidenced by the data. Now parents are increasingly addicted to exotic names, for example, Seraphim, Esenia, Agatha, Camilla. In this case, it is not often possible to meet girls with such names as Christina, Mariana, Ivan or Snezhana. At the same time, a big fashion appeared on the names of Hollywood actresses, thanks to which one can increasingly see little Monique or Olivia, Alyssia, Nicole, Regina or Rebecca in the kindergarten group.
