THERE'S a lot to a name, so when picking one out for your baby, be sure to consider the impact it may have on their life.

Like, for instance,potential foul nicknames they may receive based on their moniker.

In an article for The Tot, name expert Sabrina Rogers-Anderson said that many parents have confided in her about their baby name regret.
