    Hazel: too "fault in our stars"?!

    We love the name Hazel. But now in concerned that it's going to be associated with a little girl with cancer? What do you think?

    Not unless you name her Hazel Grace. I think you're fine naming her Hazel. Hazel has been used for many other characters, and many people associate Hazel with different things. I find Hazel charming, if anything, and if by chance someone does associate your Hazel with Hazel Grace Lancashire.... well, at least Hazel didn't die in the book.

    No. The Fault in Our Stars is extremely popular now, but it may not be in years. And either way, Hazel was an established name before the book/movie. Unless you name her Hazel Grace, then she probably won't be associated with it. And if she is, it's not really a bad thing. Hazel Grace Lancaster isn't a negative character.

    I haven't seen the movie and probably never for me, the name Hazel remains timeless, magical and has a lovely nature connotation too. It looks great and sounds great - so, whether a FN or MN, Hazel livens-up and beautifies any name combination.

    However, if the movie association is too strong for you, it might be best to leave it for a while & see if you still really love it ...IMHO, you should choose a name that makes you happy and feel positive about. It should also be a positive namesake -- well, in theory that's what I think...

    Well, this was inevitable.

    No, it really isn't. The Fault in Our Stars wasn't that big of a hit, at least not that I'm aware. It will be a passing association at best.
