So, first of all, this is purely hypothetical at this point, and I'm just looking for some opinions.
My BF and I were recently discussing names and after his eviscerating pretty much my entire girls list we were left with exactly one name we both sort of agreed upon... Annabel. It's spunky, honors my mom, and as I said it's pretty much the only one we agree on at this point. The issue is that in my BF's family the middle name Lee has been passed down to the eldest child for several generations (both males and females). And, therefore, if we were to have a child now and that child were to be a girl her name has a fair shot at being Annabel Lee.
I'm aware of the poem and its morbid feel, and while I personally love the poem and the connection isn't necessarily too much for me, as most people wouldn't know their middle name anyways, I just want some opinions on how everyone else would see the name.
