    Has anyone else encountered this?

    I love some names, but only when I say them in my head. When I say them out loud, it just sounds strange and foreign in my mouth. I can't possibly use a name that only sounds good in my head, right? Does anyone else have this problem? The thought expectation of the name is not meeting the verbal results!

    Oh man, YES!!

    They are what I refer to as the names I love, "on paper", because when I say them out loud it sounds like I'm trying to hard too say them right. Its incredibly frustrating!

    Thats exactly how I feel about the name Dashiel...Love the name on paper & in my head, in theory I feel it fits my sibset, love the nn Dash, but when I say it out loud, I feel like I am trying to say a name I dont know how to pronounce!

    Yes, yes yes, completely! Ienipa and Eiola are the ones that spring to mind immediately (they happen to be two of the slightly more unusual ones of my list) - I just feel there is something missing when I say them out loud... I'm glad someone else feels the same way though!

    Yes! For me it's Conrad. When I actually say it, the -rad part gets overemphasized and I don't like it. In my head it's so handsome!
