We are 30 days from delivery with the perfect name picked. But now df wants to ask how I feel about a different name. I don't really like it but I want some opinions...

The name is Andromeda.
Thoughts??

It's unique. What is the one you had picked out?

I like Andromeda--lots of good nicknames options, historical pedigree, uncommon but recognizable...it is a good one. 

The only downside I could foresee is that is a bit of a mouthful; four syllables is not unheard of (Alexandra, Adrianna, Gabriella, etc), but Andromeda is loaded down with a ton of consonants which makes it seem bulkier, KWIM??

Overall, I like it. (plus, you could call her Andie, which is me!)

And he wants it spelled Andraumeda. I just feel like it's too long and kinda bulky. He did say we could call her Andi lol

I hate it. I went to school with an Andromeda, everyone called her Annie, which I also dislike. Everyone made fun of her name. :-(

I like Casideigh (Cassidy) much better. :-) I do like the NN Andi though.

See this was my concern. I feel like she would be made fun of, and while I love the movie Annie is never a name I would pick.

I think Casideigh looks better than Andraumeda--the spelling of the second would give people pause on how to pronounce it. 

Sweet of DF to offer suggestions though! Maybe he has some misgivings about Casideigh?

No, he says he has no problems with he name we have already. (And he shouldn't he picked it out lol) he just said he was at work and it just dropped in his head and he thought it was a really nice name.
