About This Quiz

Who doesn't love children? Well, quite a lot of us, as it happens, but most of us do, and even those who don't generally love children as a whole tend to know a few little humans who make their heart melt. Children are just small people, after all, and some of them are lovely while others are, less so. Fortunately, nearly everyone loves their own children with the fire of a thousand suns.

Other than the gift of life, the first great gift you give to your child is their name. That's why it's very important to get it right. In some cultures, you name children after a living relative. In others, you choose a deceased one. Still, others prefer to come up with something new or to name the baby based on your hopes or dreams, or something they express early on that gives you a clue who they will become. In some cultures, such as the Jewish faith, it's not considered traditional to give a child a name until their naming ceremony, meaning having one picked out in advance is a little bit cheeky, but everyone who might see themselves becoming a parent has a few names floating around their noggin, just in case. Tell us about yours, and we'll see what size brood you're likely to have!
