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!!

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
