Girls names feature

We quite often get mums posting on the North Shore Mums Facebook group page asking for name suggestions for both girls and boys. 

One mum posted just last week: ‘Trying to get the creative juices flowing for a girl’s name (my hubby is so fussy; only princess angel darling will do) – what’s your daughter’s name?’

NSM Kate shares this advice: When choosing names I couldn’t help but think about how my kids’ names would look on top of a resume when it comes time to apply for a job. Having been in a few recruitment roles, names definitely play a big part with regards to selection…whether we like it or not.
