Are You a Massachusetts Resident Who is Thinking About Starting a Family? 

If you are expecting or are thinking about starting a family, you know there is quite a bit of preparation that needs to be done leading up to and after the big day. You'll certainly be busy but it's also a lot of fun. Then there's the question that you and your partner need to agree upon; what do we name our child? Sometimes that task may require negotiations between partners and other times it can come naturally with very little or no disagreement. The ease or difficulty of what to name your child could also be based on what the child's sex is expected to be. Of course, if you and your partner don't want to know the sex there's a good chance that you may want to have two names ready to go.
