P Letter Names for Girls and Boys

Welcome to the final phase of your journey, mom and dad-to-be! Soon you will be holding your tiny bundle of joy in your arms. So, now is the time to shortlist some cutesy baby names with P (if that’s the letter that you have selected) before your baby's birth. This way, you can avoid the last-minute chaos when the naming ceremony approaches.

Now, you must be wondering how to choose a baby name when you don't know the gender yet. Well, you can always shortlist a few of your favourites and make a list of P girl names and P baby boy names.

Choosing baby names is a matter of a team effort and will require the complete participation of you and your partner. Once you have decided what kind of names you are looking for, you can involve the rest of your family too. To pick the perfect names, you need to consider the following factors:

  • A starting point for your search – the type of name you want, whether a modern or traditional name

  • Short and sweet baby name - the name shouldn't be too long when combined with the last name

  • You, as parents, should be happy with the name.

Now that you have the basics clear, you can take suggestions from the other members of your family. We understand that this is going to be a little bewildering, but keep in mind, the final decision will always be yours. Remember, the name is going to stay with your baby forever, so take a good amount of time before choosing one.
