If you loved the name...
My husband and I have chosen the name Aspen Rae for our baby girl. Responses seem to be people either love it or hate it, and people seem to be concerned about the "ass" sounding part for potential teasing. I'm not too worried about that in itself but here's the thing. Our last name is Hind (rhymes with kind). Does that just put it over the top?? Ass-behind?Hubby thinks I'm making it too big of a deal in my head. If you loved the name would you use it or is our last name a deal breaker? Would you think of that if you heard her name? Thanks!!
I mean, you can't predict what the kids will do with the name once she's school age. It does set it up a bit for them, but you never know, they might not be that clever!
It would definitely cause me pause. :/ How do you feel about the similar name Afton?
I think its fine personally. I love Aspen and really I don't think about a$$ at all when I hear it. Plus, Aspen Hind sounds fine.
Although, I've heard of Jesus Condom, so it's really not that bad. :)
i LOVE Aspen, but the ass sound has always been a turn off for me. I imagine calling to my little girl in a busy public place, saying "Come here, Ass!" might get a few looks. As-pen Hind is honestly a bit of a set up, but i think kids will get over it quickly. My best friends' full name means "ass head" and we laughed along with her, and now only bring it up in a fight lol. Maybe if you use Nickname Penny at least 50% of the time it would be less noticable. Aspen is such a lovely name, i would go with it if you love it so much :)
I think the name itself is fine. But with your last name being Hind, that's just...no. I'm sorry. It's just begging for some teasing. I'm sure you'll find another name!
I think Aspen is one of those love it or hate it names. If you love it, then I would just use it. I don't think of ass when I hear it. I think it's fine with the last name as well.
I think it's pretty bad. And when said together, it sounds like "Asp in hind-" not a very pretty image!
Yep, it would concern me. Aspen alone makes me think of as*, but both names together are pretty bad.
I would pick something else. (I think a** and hind myself)
