Unless you have a magical crystal ball, there's no way of telling what the future will hold for your child. But that doesn't stop many parents, myself included, from pushing their little one towards a certain path. For some moms and dads, that means introducing their child to the wonderful world of sports in hope that they'll some day be a Wheatie box-worthy athlete. And there are plenty of ways to ensure you child achieves this status, from enrolling them in Mommy and Me sports classes to giving them a baby name for future athletes.
There are definitely a lot of options out there when it comes to picking out the perfect baby name for your future tennis star, MVP quarter back, or Olympic medalist. You can take inspiration from the sport itself, famous athletes, or use names whose meaning has to do with athletic attributes. It's entirely up to you (and I guess, maybe your partner). There's no way to guarantee that your child will endorse the newest Nike shoe or don a series of championship rings when they get older, but you can at least give them a bit of a head start by giving them a name fit for a future athlete.
