How to choose the name of the child?
The pedagogist answers Lucilla Targetti, author of "The great book of names"
- Don't rush to pick the right name.
- Avoid names that are already compromised or full of meaning, which could weigh on the child or generate expectations. Sometimes they are given names of famous people or from the history of culture, or entertainment or relatives no longer alive who have held particular roles and which may not too favorably affect the future unborn child.
- Names are many and it is important also consult their meaning because it has an important role and the meaning must be made to resonate
I remember the words of the mother in the story, who answers the question of the little girl where the names come from "the names come from afar and at a certain point you feel that it is the right one as it happened to ame when I saw you for the first time "
The name has to do with its origins with family roots, they come from afar. And waiting is a period in which parents prepare themselves in every sense to welcome a gift, their child to also pass a sense of family identity. The name is the result of a long wait, a preparation, a parental maturation, and consequently a strong sign of family belonging.
