    This is the only concern I have. I don't mind the critic or the tease but I can't imagine it on a 40 yrs old woman.

    The way I see it, it's not like I'm asking to name my child Rumpelstiltskin.
    Rapunzel is similar enough to Hazel and Rafaela for me to deem it usable.

    It's the SO I worry about... but I'd be willing to settle for middle name if he hates it that much
    I'm not a big fan of Hazel either (it's ok), but at least it ages well. Rapunzel is pretty out there, in my opinion, and I just can't see it on a job resume. I agree with the poster who said it was like naming your daughter Cinderella.

    P.S. I had a friend who always wanted to name her daughter Snow. It was her favorite name for years, but she just happened to fall in love with a man whose last name happened to be White. She honestly considered sticking with the name she loved until a few of us gave her our opinions. When she gets pregnant, she could go back to Snow. Ultimately, it's her choice, just like this is your choice. We're just giving you our opinions.

    I wouldn't want Rapunzel as my name, so I wouldn't give it to a daughter.

    It's usable - for a long-haired pet!
    All the best,
