New Baby Name Trends for 2007

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 3, 2007

Babyhold.com has unveiled the latest trend for naming babies. The new trend for naming babies is “unique”! More parents are choosing unusual baby names instead of those that are more traditional and popular. A poll conducted over the past few months shows an overwhelming 63% of more than five thousand U.S. voters preferred to name their baby with a unique name that no one in their area had. The next choice in line was naming a baby after a family member, which received 19% of the votes. Names from the Bible came in third, receiving 10% of the votes. Choosing a popular baby name and naming a child after a famous person ranked in last. What has influenced the rise of the new trend in baby naming? It seems that more and more parents are looking for the most inventive and distinctive name for their new child.

Traditional baby names stemming from religious or cultural origin have been given by parents expressing their pride in their cultural and religious heritage with the desire that their children will continue the noble traditions and way of life that have been upheld by many a generation before them. Popular names have come and gone, but tradition has remained for centuries, defining an ongoing stream of given names in various cultures and peoples. So what is this new desire to stem away from tradition and search for the most exotic name one can find?

Today’s multi-cultural society, fueled by the Internet and access to multiple cultural traditions have made today’s society less traditional. Tradition requires boundaries, and when none are present society becomes less defined and more universal. Perhaps it is a subconscious response to this new society that is sparking a desire to find the most unique baby name. With tradition practiced less and our senses and wonder exposed to such a vast array of different lifestyles and world cultures, it is no wonder that is it such a growing trend to look for the new, the fresh, the most inventive. With the best intentions for their future child and its success in life, parents are looking for the name that will distinguish their child from the crowd and give them an individuality that will follow them throughout their lives.

Irving, TX (PRWEB) September 11, 2011

The online world of self defense products is immense. There are hundreds of companies selling self defense products and there are many different types of products to choose from such as; Personal Alarms, TASERS, MACE, Pepper Spray, Stun Guns, Animal Repellents, Safety Lights, Knives, Metal Detectors, Diversion Safes, Child Safety Products, Instructional Fighting DVDs and much more.

ACS Personal Security handles all of these products and hundreds more. Whether it is something to be used as protection while walking alone at night or to be purchased for a gift,stun guns, pepper spray or TASER products are very much in demand.

ACS will happily answer any questions about a specific product and will give detailed instructions on how to use any of the products they carry.

ACS Personal Security has several of their self defense products available in their office, however, the bulk of the product line is only available on the company website.

There are products like personal alarms, pepper spray, stun guns, and expandable batons for personal protection and can be purchased as separate items or in pre-packaged kits with several different products.

Additionally, ACS carries a full line of surveillance equipment such as hidden cameras, nanny cameras, stand alone DVR’s, dome cameras, bullet cameras, and complete surveillance systems.

Do you really need to bring a pepper spray or stun gun everywhere you go? Probably not, but then again, you can’t predict when you will actually need a self defense tool. ACS owner, Jay Kreps, states, “remember, it’s not IF, but WHEN, a stun gun or pepper spray will help you break free from an attacker”.

Keep in mind, rape, kidnappings, and assaults occur hundreds of times a day – every day, which is especially true if you are a young woman, an elderly person, or a child. There are child kidnappings, rapes and assaults on women of every age, and the perpetrators are just waiting to take advantage of you.

At ACS Personal Security there are many different and unique items, like an expandable stun baton, lipstick pepper spray, or different kinds of everyday items like a door stop alarm or flashlight stun gun. ACS has a 90 day return policy and a warranty for each product carried as well as among the lowest pricing in the industry.

Stun Master Stun Guns are featured at ACS Personal Security as are several TASER products. Females especially like the many different types of pepper spray that is carried such as the LIPSTICK look alike pepper spray, and the CELL PHONE look alike stun gun!

About Advanced Commercial Solutions:

ACS started as a background fingerprinting – notary and drug screening company. While they took appointments in their centrally located office in Irving, TX, they specialized in offering mobile service to people who just didn’t have the time to come in to the office for these services. ACS Fingerprinting developed a large corporate client base and continues to serve the general public in the Dallas – Ft Worth Metro area.

Company owner Jay Kreps, kept looking for another business that would complement the existing fingerprinting, notary, and drug screening services and decided self defense products would be a good match and would be able to co-exist in the same office in Irving.

He researched and found a company that would supply him with name brand self defense products and surveillance equipment, had his websites built, and started his new business selling self defense items. Because of his 25 plus years in law enforcement, he knew the need for safe, quality made self defense products and surveillance products were much needed and in demand by the general public.
