As baby's kicks get stronger and stronger, the certainty sets in: You are gestating the next David Beckham. Check out the 2014 World Cup squads as you search for the perfect name for your future footballer — boy or girl.

However, you probably have baby names on the brain 24/7 these days, and only once every four years does this opportunity present itself. Whether you want an all-American name to support our boys or prefer the appeal of a more worldly name, something here is bound to inspire you.
