Choosing a name for my baby was one of the favourite things I had to do in preparation for his arrival. I definitely wanted the name to be chosen before he entered this world.
As I knew I was expecting a boy, I wanted the name to sound strong and have a good meaning. I also didn’t want a popular name as I wanted him to stand out from the crowd, although this can never be guaranteed for the rest of your child’s life as your chosen name can become popular in the upcoming years.
I chose the name Hector after a Trojan hero and warrior, who fought bravely against the Greeks in the Trojan War
Spelling the name is another thing to consider, but if you want your child to steer away from Starbucks then you don’t need to worry about that. I’ve been lucky so far, if I attempt to spell it, they interrupt me and say: Oh, don’t worry, I know how to spell Hector!
