Choosing a name for your child is no easy thing. What's more, today there are more and more names to choose from. In some ways, it was easier in the old days, when children received names that had been in the family for generations. Today we have a huge treasury of names that only grows, with ever greater variation, so it can be difficult to decide what name to give one's child. But that also makes it exciting and fun!
Advice and inspiration
If you feel lost, you can get some help from the"Name suggestions"tool. If you're connected with another person in the app, you can help each other, come up with ideas, and create a list of favourite names together.

Zlatan, Ibra, Ronal, Wayne, Luis, Marion, Tiger, Anja, Figo, Marta, Elena, Foppa, Zäta, Freddie, Kenny, Kim, Ingo, Ara, Venus, Serena.
