Choosing a name for your baby is one of the most exciting and fun (albeit, daunting) pregnancy tasks. Debating names is one of the first times you actually get to picture your little baby as an actual person. It’s hard to choose a name for someone you’ve never met, but talking through options with your partner can be a great way to imagine what your future child will be like, and what your hopes for them are. It’s easiest to go down a list, so you'll need some awesome baby names starting with A to get you going.
Just as everyone has preferences when it comes to personal style or house decor, people typically have very specific preferences when it comes to names. Many like something uncommon, while others prefer classic names. You may want something trendy and fun, while your partner prefers something meaningful. Unless you and your partner have the same taste in names, it might take some time (and a lot of research) before you can meet in the middle. But that's why starting with the letter A is so great. Whether you're set on certain initials or unsure of where to start, having a list of baby names starting with A, from Atticus to Alaina, can give you a jumping off point.
Talk over these names (many of them are unisex options) with your partner or do some digging on your own and find out what you like in a name and what’s most important to you. The entire naming process can be so thought-provoking and fun — take some time to enjoy it.
