Here's a very luxurious-looking vinyl monogram & name:
Or some adorable vinyl letters & characters:
I even found a name banner hanging on a crib, which photographs beautifully but is very, very unsafe for baby, as is any sort of long cord/streamer:
What really caught my eye came right from my own family! My cousin just had a baby boy over the weekend and she posted this photo of his name in his nautical-themed room. Since my son's room is pirate-themed, I'm picturing this with a few additions like a ship steering wheel & maybe some little pirate hats?? As long as baby can't reach it, obviously!
I just love the fishing net. It's very original and works so well with the nautical theme, yet it's practical to hang the letters and shapes on to.
