Naming your newborn child can definitely be a stressful time. Trying to come up with the perfect name for your little one and also hope that they love it in the future. I can't tell you the hard time I had even just coming up with names for my younger brothers. In my case, my parents wanted to make sure their children's names all started with the same letter, so that limited the name pool, which was both a good and a bad thing.

There are some couples that have a harder time choosing a name, especially if both parents want a different name. This ultimately leads to a compromise or more name ideas.

Parents can search for hours and hours to find the name that they want to choose for their new arrival. Time can be spent searching the internet, on name generators, as well as asking others what they think about some of the names that they are thinking about.

Of course, there are other places to search for names for your little one. According to names.org, other than the internet, people also look at family members' names, names from their favorite movies, their favorite athletes, pop culture names, historical or religious names, nature names, and more.

If you are looking for some ideas on what to name your newborn, names.org recently released the list of the most popular baby names in Maine for 2022. Below, you will find the top 10 boys' and girls' names that made the list this year.
