Baby Name Question of the Week: Your biggest about-face?
by Emma Waterhouse
Our Question of the Week: What’s your biggest baby name turnaround?
We’ve all been there: an old favorite suddenly loses its lustre, or a new love appears as if from nowhere and shoots straight to the top of your list.
Whether you’ve heard a name “in the wild” for the first time, or a celebrity has just used it, or perhaps you’ve stumbled across a particularly stunning combination on the Nameberry Forums which makes you see it in a whole new light… So many factors influence our love (or otherwise) for certain names.
So, today we’re interested in hearing about the names that have prompted the biggest change of heart in you, for better or for worse.
Which names did you used to dislike but now love?
Which names did you used to love that have since lost their shine?
And what was it that made you change your mind?
