We picked Raquel Isabel for our baby due in May and everyone hates it. My mom said my girls will hate me later for all having bell middle names. My other girls are Dominga Annabel and Monica Kirstabel. My brother says he will call her Rocky and buy her boxing gloves. My sister says its just plain ugly. :-( I know its our choice and we can stick with this name if we want but I dont want everyone hating her name or calling her Rocky. :+(

There were a few names I loved but decided against because I hated the nicknames.

When we named our son after hubby I made it clear to family he was a second not a JR. And he wasnt to be called jr. A few of hubbys friends have tried to call him jr. And I correct them. Idk but I cant stand peoplecalling him jr. l

That's really rude they aren't more supportive even if they don't like it. I'm sorry :(

I think the name is just fine!

It's ok. I don't like it because the ending sounds are the same.

Thats the only reason the middle namd wasnt 100%. I am positive she will be Isabel or izabel but we were strongly leaning toward Raquel. We have a terrible time picking out names. Our last baby we didt agree unti like 37 weeks.

It's not a bad name, but when I see Raquel it doesn't really scream "feminine".

If you love it though, use it!

Yeah. Im just one that doesn't like rhyming or endings that sound the same

I generally use a short first name and a longer middle or vise versa.

I mix it up with syllables, so it doesn't sound like mush. It also depends on the last name as well.
