Picking a name for your child is hard work. After all, you don't want to end up giving your bundle of joy a name that will get them made fun of. That's why you really have to think it through. To help you out, here are a few tips from Men's Health that'll help you pick a name that your child won't resent you over:

2. Are You Positive It’s Not a Stripper’s Name?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Sure, strippers have some sexy names. However, you should probably try to pick a cute name for your child rather than a sexy one. You don't want to end up going to a strip club and getting a dance with someone that goes by the same name as your child.

3. Are You Absolutely Sure You Want to Name Your Kid after a Movie Character?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You want your child to be proud of their name. That's why you have to pick something that you know they'd love.
