When it comes to naming your baby, there are many things to consider: origin, popularity, meaning and even family legacy. Many parents-to-be believe their baby's name says a lot about their child and the type of person they will become.

Over the last 100 years, the baby names that have been the most popular in North America were often rooted in religion.

Tiffany and Cody are not weird spellings. Now, if it were Codee,  Tifanee,  or Tifanknee,  yes those are a tad riddiculous to spell. As for Ginafer, well that's just wrong. G and J make different sounds, I don't get why people don't understand that.

I truly believe that it is not good to have too different a name that a person has to spend an entire lifetime spelling it.  Your name is your identity for life.   A postive and strong name gives a positive image and self worth.   I would guess that there are not too many Ginafers or Tiffany's, Cody's or

Jax's as CEO's of major companies.
