As parents, we want to make sure that our children are raised in a loving and supportive environment. One way to do this is by choosing an appropriate name. The first letter of your child’s name can play a big role in how they feel about themselves. If you are expecting a little girl who starts with the letter L, have no fear! There are many female names that start with L which will fit the bill for any parent looking for something special! In this blog post, I am going to share six super smart ways to save money on female names that start with “L.”
Look for names that are popular in your family. Choosing a name with a strong history within the L tradition can make it easier to avoid common mistakes, and show your little one how much they mean to you!
Consider an unusual spelling of an old favorite. Have too many Leahs or Lees? Try out Leigha, Lia, Leia, Lesia or any other variation on this theme. You’ll be able to find something new without losing touch with what is familiar and beloved in the process!
-hoose a middle name instead of using just one letter as their first initial. This will let them have some continuity between their current identity and future selves while also giving you more variety when naming your child overall!
Don’t forget about the boys! Not all babies are girls, so be sure to take a look at lists of male names for inspiration. What could your son’s initials spell out or stand for? It may not be what you’re expecting but it can be just as creative and meaningful!
Borrow some flair from other cultures. Some countries have specific customs when naming their children that might give you new ideas on how to honor both the past and present traditions in your family tree.
Take advantage of name combinations that rhyme with each other. You’ll get two beautiful first sounds without having to worry about letters getting thrown around too much or running into any spelling errors like if they were separate names instead!
Include your family’s heritage. Consider including some of the letters from their last name in a first name to make it extra special and unique!
Naming babies is all about making connections that matter, so be sure to include names for grandparents or siblings in there too. When you’re looking for other good ideas, think back on what they were called growing up – maybe even ask them which ones they liked best when they were little! You can also try naming after someone who has passed away but still lives on through pictures and memories..these people may not have been able to give you children themselves, but this is one way we can keep their legacy alive.
Choose something different than what everyone else
Start with the names of celebrities that have recently given birth and search for their firstborn’s name.
Consider a popular name like Liana, Leena or Lexie as your middle name to save on costs.
Ask family members if they’re willing to be a donor – especially grandparents who may not themselves want an expensive gift but would love to see you become parents.
If somebody in your life has had a baby before, ask them if they can donate some of their items from this recent child and then return those gifts when it’s time for another new one (or let them know which things you are looking forward to having).
Maternity clothes aren’t cheap either!
Take advantage of the savings and discounts offered by sites like Groupon, Living Social or Amazon.
Utilize a free service such as Nameberry to search for names from all over the world with various cultural backgrounds.
Use your phone’s contact list to find friends that have given birth in the past year so you can ask them about their experience and what they named their baby girl.
Reach out to people on social media who are expecting an addition to their family, asking if they would be willing to provide feedback about some potential name choices. Ask if there is anything specific they’re looking for when deciding upon a name – whether it may be gender neutral, doesn’t rhyme with other common names, or family history.
See what your favorite celebrities have named their children for inspiration and ideas.
Visit a baby store that has books on names from different cultures to get some tips about where you can find the name of your dreams at an affordable price.
