Today’s Question of the Week was inspired by a suggestion from anniebee:

What iffy reactions have some of your choices gotten from non-name fans?

Have you ever gotten a quizzical look, a raised eyebrow—or worse—in response to one of your faves, a name known and loved on Nameberry, but which others out there in the nonberry world might never have even heard before—or else find hopelessly old-fashioned?

What is the most extreme reaction you’ve received to your name choice either while you were still considering it or after you had already used it for your child?

What was your response to their response?

Did it make you have second thoughts about the name?
