When will she recognize her name? So, what do you get for all the trouble you went to picking a beautiful name for your special delivery? A baby who won't even know her name for a few months yet! Name recognition doesn't usually occur until about 5 to 6 months of age, but by repeating the name again and again, delirious with delight (or fatigue), you'll help her learn to love the sound of it as much as you do.
How will she learn her name? Research shows that familiar words said often and with emphasis, like her own name or "Mommy," give her an anchor in the babble of all the unfamiliar sounds she hears and will help jumpstart her language comprehension. So whisper that gorgeous name into her ear as many times as you want, and in a few months she'll turn her head, look at you, and giggle in response.
