Is it bad that I want to name my baby a name I heard on tv?

Both my daughters have names ending with elle, Gabrielle and Isabelle.. I am prego with baby #3 , which is also a girl and heard a name on tv I really like, but heres the deal, I was watching a show about a little girl who disapeared while riding her bike to go to the icecream truck and was never found, named Mikelle.. I really like the name, but is it weird to name my child that?

  • About 5.5 years ago DH and I were watching tv and saw a commercial for Home Depot Olympic athletes. The name was Rami. We decided right then and there that the baby I was carrying would be Rami. It means amazing, awesome, thunderous; and he is.

  • I don't think it's bad that you heard it on TV, but you may regret the association with the sad story of a missing child.

  • no.. as long as you like the name who cares where you found it! Just don't tell anyone about where it came from and nobody will be the wiser! I still want to name my first born son after a character in a fantasy novel that I read when I was 14..

  • Maybe your baby is the spirit of the lost Mikelle so it's meant to be.

  • I think it's weird that all your daughters' names will rhyme, but it's your decision.
