Baby Names – Would You Pay Money for Name Numerology?

A friend of mine recently had a baby, and at the hospital we asked what is the baby’s name? They haven’t select one yet as they would like to go to a Fengshui master to seek help in selecting a name based on the birth date and time of birth – in order to get the best letter combination.

So off they went to secure a master’s opinion on their child’s name. There were four names given by the master for a $250 fee. The names given were spelled in a non conventional way, example Sbesten which I assumed was pronounced as Sebastian.

When asked for a vote, I’ve strongly object to the name Sbesten! It just doesn’t look right. That leads me thinking…. it’s good to go to a master for help on a suggestion for your child’s name. It’s good to follow tradition(s), but we should help ourselves by giving the master a list of names we preferred and selecting one name that best fits our child.

Pick a name well. Do not pick a name that might make your child be the talking point in school for the wrong reason. The chosen name is going to stick with him/her for many years. Well.. This is just my personal take on this matter.

PS: I’m secretly thinking if that master knows English. Hmmm…..

As a father of two beautiful kids - Max and Jac, I want to share the love, jitters, concerns and joy that they have brought the Mrs and me over the past years. It's a blessing to have Shasha, our lovely domestic helper, who is helping us to keep the house in human order with the two cute monsters at home. Join me in my experiences and daily life as a parent. PS: Having a child is a big decision, there isn't any 30 days return policy 😄
