But they also happen to have a meaning which I don't necessary love.
I'm really having an issue with this. I really am, because I love meaningful names.
So my question is, did you check the meaning of your baby's name before naming him/her? Did it bother you?
I know people won't be asking the meaning of their names, but it's really becoming an issue to me.
I can't help it, it's just me.
What do you think about names with bad/weird/orwhaterveryouwouldn'tlike meanings?

For me, it's more about a name being meaningful , having a special significance to you (eg: if it honours a family member) , and not so much aboout having a "good" or "nice" meaning.
A name that comes to mind is Cecilia: it means "blind", but I still love it and I will probably use it some day because it's my mother's name + it reminds me of the novel "Atonement" (which I love), and the song by Simon and Garfunkel.

Jessica J, I'm totally with you. I really love a meaningful name, and i think it is really important to voice that wish of ours in the name of our children.
I think we all want our chlidren to be great, good and virtuos people. I really do beleive that a name could reflect that. That is why it is so important to me.
