According to Babycenter.com, the summer months are booming with new births. August, June and July are the second, third and fourth most popular months for “birth” days, in that order. I See Me! award-winning author weighs in on the most popular 2012 baby names.

Each "My Very Own Name" book is made uniquely for each child and features his or her name in the book. The book welcomes baby into the world and is a celebration of his or her very own name.

Millions of expectant parents will be on the quest this summer to find a perfect baby name for their new baby. William Shakespeare posed the famous question “What’s in a name?” long ago. A name is a reflection of identity and character and once you have it, you have it for life.

Children’s author and founder of I See Me! personalized children’s books Maia Haag is an expert on names. Over ten years ago, Haag created the award-winning “My Very Own Name” storybook that has become a classic, staple baby gift. In the story, animals come together to spell the new baby’s name letter by letter. At the end of the story, they “sing and dance and stomp” their feet in celebration of the creation of the baby’s name. Haag said, “Each My Very Own Name book is made uniquely for each child and features his or her name in the book. The book welcomes baby into the world and is a celebration of his or her very own name.”

Every year, I See Me! distributes hundreds of thousands of personalized books to new babies all over the world.
