would Willa be misheard as Willow?
It just occurred to me that the name Willa might be a nice reference to my maiden name (Wilkinson). I've always thought it was a lovely name, i like the Willa Cather connection, and i don't know why i took me so long to realise the link to my maiden name! Anyway, i have a slight concern that people will always mishear it as Willow which is becoming popular-ish in the Uk so would be much more recognisable than Willa. I do like the name Willow but i don't feel i can have a Juniper and a Willow! So, will she/i forever be correcting people? Should i just have it as a middle name option?Proud Mama to a beautiful Juni-bug and expecting our second 27th May 2014.
I'm always on my phone so please excuse my short replies and terrible punctuation!

Possibly, if you live in a location where that end sound gets dropped...but I don't think it would be constant. I think it really depends how much an occasional correction would bother you. Willa is gorgeous!mom to my little livvy, 7-10-13

I think that will happen sometimes, however I think that happens to everyone. So I wouldn't be too concerned.21 year old who loves names, books, and languages.
