    Names you love the meaning of, but don't love the actual name

    I thought this would be interesting. Sometimes, I love the meaning of names but am meh about the actual name. Carys is my main one, I really like how it means "love", but am just not crazy about the name. I guess it's the -y in the middle, and I also don't particularly like the sound.

    Does this happen to you or is it just me?

    I love Carys' meaning too, but I agree that the sound doesn't appeal that much to me; it's not bad, just okay. I also love the meaning 'Wisdom' of Sophia/Sophie, but I'm so sick of both names (I know so many!) and I'm not a huge fan of the sound anyway.
