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!!

Sorry typo...I meant bad idea...

What’s her name? What was the name you wanted to call her?

To be honest, at 2 years old, I think it’s probably too late, she’s old enough to recognize her name. Could you consider changing her middle name to your favorite name? Or maybe save it for any future children, or even pets?

I totally agree with poster two. Let it go now and learn from your "mistake" with your mom. Don’t make this about you now. Think of your daughter.

She definitely knows her name. I thought about adding the name I like to hers...making hers the middle name and then doing a nickname combo of the two.

I definitely am also thinking of my daughter which is why I’m seeking advice. Sometimes you just want unbiased opinions. Thank you for helping.

I just wanted her name to be as special as I feel she is. This won’t happen twice. I am pregnant now and my mother has already started with her ’opinions’ on which name she didn’t like from my daughter. I told her we will not be revealing the sex or taking advice on names since my husband and I want it to be solely our choice.

If you don’t mind me asking, what is her name? We could help you find a name with a similar sounding/same nickname? I actually think it would be ok to change it - you don’t want to cringe every time you say your daughter’s name - you want to smile. GL!

this is a live and learn situation, you caved, and then waited too long before realizing your alleged mistake. She’s too old no, leave it alone
