Pick Or Pass On These Baby Names And We'll Match You With A Famous Baby Daddy

Pregnancy is both exciting and daunting at the same time. It's exciting in that it means that we'll soon be welcoming a tiny human being into this world. In other words, we'll soon become parents and we'll be starting a family. It's what the majority of people look forward to the most in their lives.

On the other hand, it's daunting because it means that imminent change is just around the corner. Our lives will never be the exact same ever again. We'll have to look after another human being for at least the next 18 years, but probably for much longer.

We'll have to be responsible. This means doing plenty of research into all things babies, purchasing the necessary baby equipment, and of course, choosing the perfect baby name.

In theory, picking out a baby name seems simple enough. Indeed, it even sounds kind of fun. In reality though, it's pretty stressful. After all, there are so many names to choose from. Narrowing down our choices might seem like a truly impossible task.

But forget stress and worry. This quiz is designed to be fun. Pick or pass on the 50 baby names below and be matched with a famous baby daddy!
