Compound names for boys: when one only falls short

Choosing a baby’s name is one of the first decisions you will make as parents. Sometimes, we have many options that are to our liking or it is difficult for us to agree with our partner (or family, if we want to include them in the entire selection process) to choose a single name.

Therefore, perhaps it is a good idea to consider the option of naming our baby not only with one, but with two names. Yesterday we gave you ideas for names for girls , now we share some ideas of classic and modern names of compound names for boys .
