Do you regret the baby names you chose?

Everyone is entitled to have a change of heart, but what happens when the very thing you're second-guessing is your baby's name? As much time, effort, and research that expectant parents put into choosing the "perfect name" for their pending bundle of joy, you'd think people would be happy with their decisions ... right? Yeah, think again.

While a good number of new moms and dads just love the name they chose for LO, there are some who wish they could hit the redo button in a game of #JustKidding.

Should you happen to be one of the parents in the latter group -- who may or may not cringe every time they hear a certain baby name (no judgment here) -- please know you aren't alone. 

These parents are speaking up about why they no longer jibe with their baby's name. In an ideal world, we would love every decision we make, but hey, we don't really live in an ideal world, do we?

Nope! My son is Brody Wyatt and I adore his name. We sometimes call him B, which I adore also.

Nope, we named our son Levi and our daughter was Penelope. I figured since they already had to deal with the really young mom thing they should have normal names.

When I was pregnant with my daughter (now 4) we were looking up baby names. CM's sister site is one of the best baby name sites. One of their top girl names is Emilia, and we both loved that name straight away. I know it's very popular, but not as popular as the Lily, Sophie, Olivia, Imogen ect. I love it so much and it really fits in with her personality, she's our little princess!



I fell in love with the unisex name Bailey for our baby boy who is now 4 months. Even if it's more popular for girls, it's less popular than Emilia so he will never really get confused. I try not to choose popular baby names for my kids as I don't want them to get confused when another person calls their name, and their actually trying to talk to a completely different child.
