    Since you asked for it straight, here's my straight talk: No.

    Unless you live in the UK where there's obvious familiarity with the name, I can see most invariably calling him "See mus", which...

    Methinks you and he need to have a convo about this, and real fast. Letting issues fester is like adding fertilizer to crabgrass.

    Neither of your needs are more important than the others here,...

    A guys perspective? Your naming a baby, not a book or a new up scale line of perfume. He's also going to be very fairly small for a while, and a big, long, multi syllable name is going to seem...

    I like classic names, too. They're timeless (my boys are Levi, Noah, and soon, Asher).

    I think it sounds best when the FN and the MN begin with different letters, though, so I'd rethink Jeremiah...

    Works for me! FWIW, I think you can select any NN for any FN you want..especially if you like the NN but not the whole FN it's derived from. I don't like Theodore but like Theo and don't associate...

    Katie, I changed a lot of things for and in my marriage, and don't see them as losses. I suppose it depends on how one experiences change, or how central those changes are to their identity. But,...

    Here's a thought: Give him the first name you like, and just call him Billy. There's no rule that says the NN has to be some derivative of the FN.

    I'm a Robert, called Bobby by family...but...

    I know this might be sacrilege on a name site, but I'll say it anyway: It's just a name.

    I think the issue with hubby is frame of reference...he doesn't know anyone with the name 'Kieran", so he naturally relates to it as best he can, as a close phonetic of "Karen". But, Karen is Karen,...

    I like Nora...and yes, maybe it's b/c I also like Nora Jones (the singer). If "lavender" was actually your grandma's name, I say that's a great tribute.

    Hi Carol,

    We're going with Asher, FWIW. You seem to like names with "alternate meanings" (like felicity, rose, etc.), so I can see the logic there and how it would work in your family.
