My sister's being induced tomorrow, and she's naming her daughter Morrigan nn Morgie, but I'm really struggling with it.
I know how to pronounce Morrigan in my head, but when I actually say it out loud, it comes out weird (my voice and accent have always sounded weird IMO) and then there's the confusion with the similar name Morgan (Yeah, I know that Morgan and Morrigan are actually two different names. lol Morgan was originally a surname, which I associate with boys).
Also, when I hear both the full name and nickname, I think of the words "morgue", "mortgage", and a certain other word I don't use, so I have a very hard time picturing Morrigan/Morgie for a real child. I'm trying to put my feelings aside for my niece's sake, but it's getting more difficult. Any other nicknames I can possibly call her besides Morgie?
Anyone else ever had those feelings about a family member or friend's name choice for their kids, or still has them? I feel so awful!
Baby Morrigan is the first grandchild for my mom btw.
