Many parents choose to place compound names to your boys and girls, either united in a single name or as a harmonic combination of two names. Be that as it may, these combinations are still very popular in Ibero-American countries, although currently we can find parents who are inclined to seek increasingly original and somewhat risky options, to the traditional combinations of names. And some of these compound names are so rare that you won't believe that there are babies that are called that.
Before we start, let's take a look at some tips to keep in mind when creating name combinations.
- If you want to form a name made up of a single word, you must have careful when forming it. If the first name has an accent, then it must disappear when combined with the second name, example: María Inés is changed to Marinés.
- You must seek a harmony between both names so that they are heard light and easy to pronounce by others. This will save your children a lot of trouble explaining how to write or say it.
- You must also take into account the grammar, so they have to be names that, although they are interesting and peculiar, are easy to write both for your children and for other people. Which will avoid future confusion or complications.
- Although they lean towards attractive and strange compound names, you should avoid such extravagant names, especially if you live in a simpler community. This is because in the future, your children may be teased or prone to low self-esteem and you don't want that to happen, right?
You should also think about the impact this compound name will have on your kids. They are the ones who will carry you for the rest of your life and even though you and your partner do you think is the perfect name for themAre you sure that your children will feel the same? So take your time, analyze the names you want to choose and find a unique but harmonious combination.
