Baby vs. Name vs. Remorse

I NEED HELP!!! My DH and I never found the perfect name before my DD was born. We gave her the only name we could agree on and now I am sick with sadness because I hate it. I am not sure I hate the name as much as I feel it was a forced decision. If it were anything else, house, car, ect I could live with it but being as it is my daughter’s name I am considering changing it. She is 2 months old and I have been torn up about this since I left the hospital. Can anyone please tell me if you have experienced this or what you think is the best solution? DH is on board with changing it but he also likes the name she has. One of my biggest hang up with changing it is that she has been a certain name for 9 weeks-- it is almost like erasing the first weeks of her life isn’t it? But I am so scared in 10 years I will regret not doing something about it.

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.
