    Question is this too weird of a sibset??

    Lately I've been liking Natalie...
    My sons name is Robert...

    I was googling around and found an article about a old time celebrity couple
    Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner.. I guess story is like they were married and
    Went on a cruise and she ended up overboard drowning.. And people think Robert may have
    Pushed her.... Hmmmm

    Makes me think, is it too weird of a combo?? Would it bother you, should it bother me??
    Thanks and all honest comments are appreciated

    Baby's due 2 months, feeling the pressure now

    Robert is a traditional and classic boys name and Natalie is a "new classic" so I don't think there should be an issue. I don't automatically think of this tragic story when I hear the two names together. In fact, if you hadn't mentioned it in your post, I wouldn't have thought of it. These names are used enough that most people wouldn't make the connection.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Is you last name Wood or Wagner? That would be the only thing that might make me pause, and even then, it's still a very minimal connection.

    I am sure no one will make that association.

    I voted no, but for me personally, I wouldn't be able to go through with it because it would just "bug" me. Sure no one will probably know the connection unless it was like the #1 news story of the century, but it would just annoy me to know that I knew and then used the name.... does that make sense? lol

    So if you aren't like me and let little things bug you, then I think it's fine.
