If your kid was going to be named John Wayne Gacey or Ted Bundy or something that would be an issue. James Everett? Never heard of him. Just use the name.
I think it's fine. I didn't know the guy's name until I read this post. Go ahead and use it.
James Everett is an awesome name, and I highly doubt people will make the connection. I understand that it bothers you though, and it probably would bother me too. Maybe you could switch the names around. Everett James would be a handsome name.
Don't do it-as you have already both got it in your head so it has negative connotations. Anyway your hubby was not sold on it-so let us help you choose another really quick! xx
(But I totally agree with the others-never heard of him).
Why not: Everett James???
Thanks everyone. I think it would just be hard for me to do it now, especially since neither name is family, or significant in any other way...
We are brainstorming- may keep James, but ditch Everett.
Thanks for all the suggestions!
