How to decide the right name for your child’s pacifiers

Now that you have an entire list of pacifier names, how do you pick the best one? Here are some pointers to help you pick a pacifier name your baby will love: 

  • Easy to pronounce: Babies have a limited vocabulary and they’re still learning to enunciate their words. So you want to pick a name that’s easy for your baby to say. Some babies have a difficult time pronouncing words with F or K. So choose a name with softer consonants and vowels that are easy for babies. Choose names starting with N or B.  
  • The ending of the name: Babies love words ending in A or E because it’s easy for them to learn. Choose a pacifier name such as Toogee or Nugga. 
  • Repetition: Babies also tend to love doubling names such as Nah-Nah or Mee-mee. Dum-dum is also a popular choice because it’s another way to say “dummy” (another word for pacifier). 
  • Choose a name from a movie: Sometimes objects or character names from Disney movies can give you cute names for your baby’s pacifier. Or you can simply change the way you say it. For example, you can change the name Tinkerbell to Tinkie and use it as a pacifier name. 
  • Gibberish: The name you choose doesn’t have to make sense or have a meaning behind it. It can be complete gibberish. Sometimes the most funny-sounding names are the best choices to name pacifiers because babies learn the word quicker. 

Finding cute and funny names are easy but choosing the best one can be difficult. Whether you’re looking for cute stuffed animal names or names for your baby’s pacifier you can use the method above.  

Why You Should Name Your Baby’s Pacifier 

The reason why it’s so important to name your baby’s pacifier is that children are able to remember objects with unique names better. 

Did you know that naming your baby’s toys or objects such as pacifiers can help with their linguistic and cognitive development? The research examined how naming objects influenced infants and young childrens’ interpretation of objects and their categories.

Furthermore, the research also suggests that 10 month old babies devote greater visual attention to objects that have been named compared to ones that aren’t. You can read more about this research here

Tips on How to Get Your Baby to Remember the Pacifier Name

Want to help your baby remember the cute name you’ve given his or her pacifier? Here are some tips that will make the process easier: 

  • Repetition is key: When you sing the same nursery rhymes or if you say a word over and over again, your baby will start to pick up on the repetition. If you repeatedly name the pacifier when giving it to your baby, he or she will start to remember it’s name. 
  • Use melodies: Babies learn information faster when it’s paired with a song or a melody. Use a fun melody to sing the name of the pacifier to your baby to help your little one remember the object’s name. The melody or rhyming words help your baby with memory retention. 
  • Talk to your baby: To help your baby remember the pacifier name you should create conversations with your little one when presenting the pacifier. Talking to your baby helps build their vocabulary. So ask questions such as “do you want your nummy?” or “Where’s your dum dum?” This will encourage your baby to answer and it will help your little one place an object to a name to remember it easily.
  • Smile: Your baby is more likely to remember something when it’s accompanied by a positive emotion. So when you show your little one the pacifier, say the name of it while smiling and using a happy tone. Positive emotion heightens a baby’s attention so use positivity when presenting your baby with his or her pacifier with a cute or funny name. 

Use these methods whenever you want your baby to remember something such as a toy name, or even yours or their own name. 

Final Thoughts

You can invent your own pacifier name or choose one from the list I’ve created above. No matter what your choice is, a cute and funny name is the ideal way to keep your little one happy. Your baby may even come up with his or her own pacifier name that you can use. But if you’re not feeling creative use the list I created above to choose a funny or cute name for your baby’s pacifier. 

The advantage of names for toys, pacifiers or other items your baby uses is that the names become a tradition. Sometimes they’re passed down from generation to generation. This means these names become part of your family’s tradition. So which one will you choose?
