Do your kids like their names?

Ale thinks her name (Alejandra) is too long and too common... she also doesn´t like it that I only gave her ONE name (as opposed to latin custom where everyone gets AT LEAST two names--I got three, and hate it, plus I really wanted Alejandra to be her first name and couldn´t find anything that sounded good with it... Alejandra Maria, Alejandra Gabriela, Alejandra Andrea... )

  • My twins are funny. One of the girls names are Vanessa, and the other name is Vanese. They always say that I should have named them the opposite.

  • Yes, my two daughters like their names. Their names are a little bit unusual, so I was concerned they'd go through a phase where they hated them, but so far they haven't.
