    I agree that Meadow would be a better name. Minnow reminds me too much of fish bait. I wouldn't be able to take someone named Minnow seriously.

    I like the sound of Minnow too. But like others have suggested, I'd use something like Minerva as a given name and call her Minnow as a nickname. She can choose to change Minnow to her legal name when she's older if she likes it or go by Minerva or Minnie.
    Or if it's important for it to be on the birth certificate you could always use it as her middle name and still call her that.

    I would have to say I would prefer beautiful names like Willow or Meadow.

    It sounds really cute, but I agree with other posters that minnows as a fish are kind of a downtrodden species. So Minnow as a name isn't 100% appealing.

    An easy fix is make it Colleen Minnow and address her as Minnow. Or, Minnow would be a great smoosh nickname using the sounds "minn" and "o", via something like Jasmine Opal "Minnow" or Jessamine Willow "Minnow".

    I really like it! But I do agree it might be difficult to wear into adulthood. Minna is similar, gorgeous and rare. How do you feel about that?

    Or if it’s the cute/quirky nature vibe you like, how about Sparrow, Kestrel, Catkin, Pippin, Clover, Aster, Yarrow, Rosebay, Ever, Lumen, Lark/Larkin, Posy, Capri, Delphi, Sorrel...
