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!!

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?

Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
