    I think that to some ears, any name that ends in -us/-as sounds pretentious. Roman/mythological names seem to be your style, though, so go for it! There's no such thing as a universally liked name....

    Thanks for the suggestion! I don't think we'd want to pick another uncommon spelling that wasn't used by one of the women we want to honor, though. It's either go with the traditional spelling, or...

    Indy makes me think of Indiana Jones' nickname, so I imagine it more on a boy. I think Indie is wonderful for a girl. Some people might suggest a longer formal name and to use Indy/Indie as a...

    Eh, my feelings would be a bit hurt initially, but I think I would get over it. I think I'd be hurt less that she wanted to change her name, and more by her reasons (that she thought I'd given her a...

    I'm going to have to echo others and say that I'd steer clear of Bennett with your last name - it's too matchy for my taste.

    We're in similar boats--I had to give up a favorite (Estelle) when I...

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

    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...

    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.
