    Curious if/why you disliked your name growing up

    Hi there. We are expecting our third child and are pretty much set on the name if it is a boy. If it is a girl we are leaning towards Florence in honor of a great grandmother. My husband and I both grew up disliking our names for different reasons. Me because it was so common, I was usually one of two or three of us where ever I went- and still am! Him because he has a unisex name with a feminine last name -Lilley- and was mistaken for a girl if not seen in person. My question is: was there a specific reason you disliked your own name, and what have you done differently in naming your own children in response to that. Our son is Joaquin and our daughter is Avalin so you can see we have gone with the road less traveled so far. I just worry Florence is so old-ladyish that there may be some hard feelings there. What do you think????
    Mom to Joaquin Allen and Avalin Vyla and expecting baby number 3!
