Description:
I have been seeing alot of different names recently. I was just wondering if people regret the choice they made with their childs name. You never just see "normal" names anymore. Please leave a comment if you want.

Is there a little part of you that wants to change your childs name?

    I might consider changing the spelling, but I don't know that I actually would, even given the chance. My son's name fits him perfectly.

    I didn't vote, because with my first... nope - love the name and the spelling - BREANNE. With my 2nd, LOVE the name and the spelling - PAXTON. With my 3rd - I named her SARAH and her middle name as ELIANNA. After I got home from the hospital with her, Sarah didn't fit, but Ellie did.... so I kind of wanted to change it to ELIANNA BROOKE. But I am glad I kept it SARAH now, because now it fits :-)

    I kind of want to change the spelling but I dont think I will because my friends and family would be confused. My DD name is Eira Wynn it is welsh for Snow White. Well I found the name on a website that said it was pronounced Air-a but it isnt pronounced that way its Eye-ra or Oy-ra. She answers to Air-a so I kind of want to change the spelling to that.

    I really like my son's name Jackson, but I listened to his father's family when it came to the spelling and a part of me wishes I would have spelled it the way I wanted it spelled, Jaxon.

    Reason I voted YES is because i told my ex husband that if i had a boy he could pick the name, well i love my sons first name, but not his middle name, my ex hus dad picked out his middle name Josiah, which i love the name, but not the meaning behind it because my xh's dads name is Joe, he wanted to have his name in there, and if you only knew the crap my exs parents have put me through, youd understand

    yes kinda, but not because its too weird..... i went with Chloé Zara
    I really wanted Chloé Arabella, and DH wanted Chloé Arisa.... Maybe next daughter will be Arisa since DH never gets to choose

    now i don't 100% like Arabella more than Zara, but kind of wish we had gone with it since its longer and i do love it with Chloé

    but DH thought Arabella sounds like irritating?!

    My husband wants to and it's not really a change it's longer versions of the same names for both boys. I don't really care to be quite honest so I was thinking of letting them choose when they are older and we will pay to do it if they want.

    No - we chose traditional names partly for that reason.

    My son's middle name is named after his father, that wants nothing to do with him, and denies him. Even though it sounds perfect together, I wouldn't mind giving him a differnt middle name, or even adding a 2nd middle name.
