Of course we're name snobs; otherwise we wouldn't be here discussing names.
The really funny thing is, I've been obsessed with baby names for so long now (been a Berry since 1999) that's I've...
Thanks for all the kind replies! :)
Duncan Tatsui Tyndale, nn Tate.
Tatsui means "boar dragon" in Japanese. It's in honor of Tatsui Sato, who translated the Book of Mormon from English to Japanese.
Tyndale honors William...

Berries, thanks so much for the help!
Seeing all your suggestions really helped us narrow things down! And I really appreciate the feedback on Revere and Zeddicus.
We're going with Tatsui. I...

Just off the top of my head, I think you should either lose an e or add one.
Caerlon (or Caerlen; I like the -lon more)
Hmm, no, nm, that's not an improvement.

The seventh baby we've had was a girl, Cora Dove. She was born on the Fourth of July in 2011.
Then I was pregnant and didn't even bother considering boy's name, because I am full of teh dumb and...

Which sounds best?
Cora Dove & Hawthorne
Cora Dove & Duncan
Cora Dove & Connally
Cora Dove & Abraham
Cora Dove & Revere
I do like alliteration...I am leaning towards the first two combos,...

Okay, econo, we went over names again, including the names you suggested.
I liked Griffin/Gryphon and Hawthorne. I really like Hawthorne.
BUT, my husband says Hawthorne is frequently used in...

Okay, I went over a name list with The Husband tonight, and these are the top picks:
@1234plus1, I totally love Hawthorne! My husband...

This will be the fourth boy we've named, and eighth child.
Here are our other children:

sleepysessha, what fantastic recs! Thank you so much. I had no idea on Kiji, Tsuru and Raicho. I like those options very much!

Plenty of people change their baby's name.
I've done it. I personally know 3 people who've done it. It's not rare at all.

Don't worry about the Wall-E thing. Some people just like to try to be clever and end up being rude instead. I can't tell if some of them really dislike any name that isn't top 10, or they just like...

isn't that the truth?
I envy the people who look at their baby for a few minutes and then proclaim they're clearly a Sophie or a Brittney or whatnot. Or do like my husband's BFF's wife did, and...
Eliza, no question.

Czarina. Bless their hearts.
That initial Cz, though...gotta admit that's pretty arresting.

Around here, it's Le-TEE-see-ah. Lots of Hispanic folks.
I adore the nn Letty, but honestly can't get behind Letitia, pronounced leh-tee-sha. One of those rare instances where the name *looks*...

OTOH, it would be *perfect* for an over-the-top character in a work of British fiction.
Something by Terry Pratchett, perhaps.

True; if this is your husband's pick, you can look forward to taking more of the reins next time.
I kept grabbing the reins from my husband about naming girls with each daughter. We've name 4...

I watched that documentary!
Yeah. Perfect for a pet! Great geeky name for a pet. A mean name for a kid....and I say this a mom of a Buffy (that's her nn, not fn)

You know, when I tossed the Mabel idea past my kids they actually said, "Maple!" and then said, "But we'd have to bring her home from the hospital and see if she likes maple syrup first." :D :D

Chiming in here just to add my support. You're going about this thoughtfully and with consideration for your husband--you will make the right choice. :)
August 15th, 2012, 12:23 PM
Yes, change it.
Being called different names by different people is not a problem for kids. That's fine.
Ditto everyone else above--they all said it very well!

I think you're being very sensible and kind about this. I am remembering how *I* acted when was considering changing my daughter's name and I...um....wasn't so mature. ;)
Kate is everywhere, and...
jesba, thanks so much.
-ko is a suffix (and increasingly less fashionable one, but I'm okay with using trad Japanese names, not the newer ones) and you can append it to just about anything.
