Picking a name no-one else likes?
My OH and I are planning on TTC 2013 and we've falling in love with the name Arya - we pronounce it ar-yah (it's how we'd pronounce it where I'm from - not native English speaker). Problem is, every time we mention it we get a wrinkle on the nose! We just really love it!!
Everybody says its not the name. its just that they haven't ever heard it before and names like Poppy, Ruby and Ellie sit better with them, but those names aren't in our taste and we'd never pick a name like that anyway.
Would you disregard other peoples opinion and use the name anyway, or would you not use it because your family/friends dislike it?
Problem is.. every other name we've mentioned they dislike as well and I just sort of feel - I'm not naming my child to please others. But should i be!?
We had mixed opinions on our eldest sons name (Tristan), only positives on our second son (Noah) - never had purely negative opinions before...
