In English-speaking cultures, the choice of first names for children can be prompted by many factors: tradition, religion, nature, culture, and fashion, to name just a few.

Certain people like to give a name that has been handed down in the family to show   for or to remember a relative whom they love or admire. Some families have a tradition of   the father’s first name to the first born son. In other families, a surname is included in the selection of a child’s given name to   a family surname going. It may be the mother’s maiden name, for instance.

For a long time,   has also played an important role in naming children. Boysnames such as John, Peter, and Thomas are chosen from the Bible. Girlsnames such as Faith, Patience, and Sophie (wisdom) are chosen because they symbolize Christian qualities. However, for people who are not necessarily religious but are fond of nature, names   things of beauty are often favored. Flower and plant names like Heather, Rosemary, and Iris   this category.

Another factor that has had a great   on the choice of names is the spread of culture through the media. People may choose a name because they are strongly   a character in a book or a television series; they may also adopt names of famous people or their favorite actors and actresses. Sometimes, people pick foreign names for their children because those names are unusual and will thus make their children more   and distinctive.

Finally, some people just pick a name the sound of which they like,   of its meaning, its origins, or its popularity. However, even these people may look at the calendar to pick a lucky day when they make their choice.
