Baby Name Migration

When going through any name data you can see that it tells a number of stories along with the segregation of different types of names. The data also proves all different types of expectations most parents have or are looking for their kids. It certainly is not possible to understand the real source of origination of a name but most people try picking names from Bible, English books or even brand names. It is important to understand the process of migration of the name through different population and the discernible pattern that is involved in this process. The pattern can be clearly understood as the moment a name is popular amongst educated parents and high income people then it begins it journey towards the socioeconomic groups.

Stephanie and Amber initially were considered as names for high end babies but later on were very much common with low income families. There are a number of people who believe that celebrities are actually the ones who are responsible for beginning with the trends of naming. But when look around us not many people name their kids after Madonna or Britney Spears. There certainly are not much people who would prefer shopping for their kids name in Hollywood. Such people generally prefer looking around for more common names that are a few blocks away from their homes. They try looking for names that is just next block and is also the owner of a better house or a much better car.

So, initially parents who used to name their kids as Heather presently name them as Katherine. Families who named their kids as Brandon name them Benjamin presently. Most parents are also very much reluctant when naming their kids after some close family member but there are a number of parents who like to name their kids after names that are more successful in life. So the moment parents adopt a name that is high end then the name certainly does fall out of the list. Most low end parents try selecting names that are next on the list. So if you are the parent who is looking after naming your kid as Katherine or Rachel then you certainly should expect the cachet to last for only shorter period of time. The names that are peaking on the list presently might in fact be out of fashion after some time. So the moment parents think of naming their kids are wide variation of motives are considered. The fact is that most parents are always looking around for names that are smart or even high end. But they certainly are trying to prove how successful their children can be in their life.

The name certainly does not mean that their children shall be successful but parents do feel that at least they have tried their level best to provide their kids with a very successful name. So the moment you are naming your baby it is important that you select one that satisfies your needs and at the same time fits your child best.
