Before choosing a name
Here are things to consider before you sign the birth certificate:
- It gets better with age: A name might sound cute for a little baby but doesn’t suit a grown-up.
- It is not too complicated to pronounce: You can try saying it out loud to see if there’s any tricky syllable.
- It has no unpleasant association: Be mindful of the cultural sensitivity that a name you choose for your child may provoke in Korean culture. It might be wise to research more into cultural insights before settling on a name.
- It should not be easy to be mocked: Bullying is a real issue. Keep your child as far away from it as you can.
