Changing baby's name after it's born. Am I crazy???

You know how when you pick your child's name it is a name that, when you first saw it or seen it, you said "that is it!!".  And you knew that was the name your baby would be and you loved it.  Well my older 3 kids were like that but my 4th, not so much.  I never found that name.  3 days before my induction I just decided on Brooke (nothing against this name) because I knew a girl with that name and she was pretty.  Well it was never the "name" that I wanted but I just figured it would work.  The other day I heard the name and my thoughts immediately were "this is it, that is the name!".  Why didn't I hear this name or think of it before I had her?  So aggravating.  She is 5 months old.  It's not like she'll remember.  But is it crazy to change her name?  I just LOOOVE this name and I know this is the one.  What should I do?  I was thinking if I did change it I would keep her middle name Brooke.  Am I crazy?

I agree, I would go ahead and do it now before she gets any older.

That's funny.  My son's name is Nicholas.  And I HATED it for about 6 months.  He finally "grew" into it.  He is now our Nick-Nack-Paddy-Wack, Nick-Nick, Nicky and Nicholas.
