For some couples, naming their child can be quite simple or quite complicated with great debates and name arguments throughout the process. I have known a few couples from Massachusetts who took a while to name their children. For my wife and I, the decision was quite easy. When our daughter was born 4 years ago in Berkshire County we knew exactly what to name her because we had the name planned far ahead of time.
