    I'm sorry, that's no fun. I'm sure that in her mind she's being helpful.

    Since it sounds like she's just visiting, I'd suggest smiling, thanking her for her advice, and kindly reminding her...

    Do you plan to give any other children (girls perhaps?) names based on the name's meaning? If that's not really your naming style anyway, I wouldn't try to force it. Some cultures/times/people...

    I'm going to against the grain and say that if you have no intention of ever calling him Evander, just name him Vander.

    Other similar names (like Zander/Xander for Alexander) are becoming...

    Don't let one person's negativity bring you down. There will always be someone who thinks your kids' name is ugly. Always. No name is universally liked.

    I like both combinations very much. Would you want to save Clementine for a possible future child?

    With a name as short as "Eric" I doubt he'd go by a nickname often. Even if he did, you could still spell it "Aer" if you wanted.

    If you really want to begin his name with "Ae," I'd suggest the...

    I tend not to like names that start with Q, R, T, U, D, F, J, K, or N.
    I especially don't like R, but I'm not sure if that's because I don't like the letter, the sound, or the names I know that...

    In my experience, more Americans seem to use Phillip, whereas more Brits/Europeans use Philip.

    It's one of those names that looks misspelled to me no matter what the spelling. :/
