Names do a lot more than just distinguish us from one another -they also help define us. They say not only what our parents thought sounded good verbally, but also what they hoped we would become later in our lives, what they felt about their cultural background, and they reveal a little about how we see ourselves -which is why so many people go by nicknames or even change their name altogether. After all, whether someone chooses to go by John, Jack, Johnny or Jonathan says quite a bit about how they want people to view them.
When you consider all of that, it's no wonder that soon-to-be parents put so much effort into picking the perfect name for their baby. The end result can often provide a good look at the parent's values and personality as well, which is why it's actually a great way to evaluate the parents themselves. That's why simply picking your favorite children's names could give some insight into your personality, which could, in turn, help us predict how many children you should have.
If nothing else, this quiz might at least give you some ideas for your future baby names (no matter how many you're destined to have)!
