Change name vs. Yes vs. No

I had wanted a certain name if I ever had a daughter for over a decade but didn’t end up naming her it. I had gotten subtle pressure from my mother my whole pregnancy and even more at the hospital on what she thought I should name my daughter. Also, she said many negative things about the name I liked. Maybe it was the hormones and my desire to please but I gave in and have regretted it since. I wanted to change her name from the beginning but I was afraid of being ridiculed. Sometimes I would even call her by the name I wanted to ’test’ it. I even regret it more now because her name has become extremely common. The problem is she is now two. Is it too late to change it? Do you think it’s a idea bad to change it all? Thank you!!

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
