Choosing a name for your baby can be a daunting task. There are personal preferences to sort out, there is family and friends, who provide (un)wanted advice, to reckon with and last but not least the choice is so wide that sometimes one has difficulty to pick because one wants them all. This course aims to overcome this challenge, by introducing handy tips and resources to make the whole process easier and faster.

Mastering the Art of Picking a Name for Your Baby

Broken down, this course is all about how to make it easier for you to choose a name for your little one that you will like. You will also learn how to argument, in case somebody feels the need to advise you about the proper name for your baby and why you should choose their suggestion over yours. The principal tips of the course have been tried and tested not only by myself (although we made the very final selection on route to maternity hospital) but also by other expectant mammas and their partners.

This course is perfect for anyone who seeks to learn something new about the process of naming, about names and their origins and what naming conventions are used in some parts of the world like e.g. Italy.

Contents and Overview

This course contains 15 lectures and over 45 minutes of content. It's designed for anyone, regardless of experience level, who wishes to learn about names and selecting appropriate baby names in particular.

Starting with basic tips regarding how to name a baby, this course then covers the "rules" applying to family traditions, partners, initials. Further on the students will learn how to name their subsequent babies or twins and what types of names to definitely avoid for their baby.

I love running my small home based freelance business!

As a translator, I get to translate video games, business and marketing documents, sometimes advertising copy or educational content. I keep learning new things and at the same time do what I love - play with words. Besides I plan to reveal some of that knowledge in my upcoming Udemy courses!

As a teacher, I help others learn foreign languages - English and German - and try to do it in a fun and easy way. Right now I am experimenting on my youngest student - my son - and we are having a blast.

As a video marketer, I use my ability and knowledge to create videos (doodle videos, screencasts, talking heads, interviews, reviews...). Then I SEO optimize the same videos to rank them in Google and YouTube to earn affiliate commissions. My plan is to give that knowledge to you, too.

As a mother, I learned to do all of the above mentioned fast and efficiently, with children in tow, smiling and with results.

Can you benefit from my knowledge? Yes, you can! Learn from the expert!
