Maybellene, why can't you be true?
My husband and I both love the name Maybellene. It's pretty much the only girls' name we both agree on. I loved the name Mabel as a child and I love the pretty French sound of Maybellene. My husband is a Chuck Berry fan and loves it from the song. I also think the nickname "Maybe" is adorable and I even like May. But when it comes to actually naming our daughter, I just can't get past the makeup connection. Of course my husband doesn't think that is an issue - he didn't even realize it was a brand. So I guess she would be fine with the guys, but I'm sure she would get lots of jokes from the ladies.
Any ideas for how to work through this? Is it any better to name her May Beline? Or is that almost worse? Any other ideas for something similar?
