My daughter is almost a year old and Ive been having name regret.??I know….I already feel terrible. We struggled with naming her and anytime I introduce my sweet girl, there’s often an awkward silence. I hate the thought of her having to deal with that as she gets older. Our older 2 are Aiden and Addison….we just liked the names-A’s not intentional. They are school age so there’s a bit of a gap with our babe. We describe her as strong willed and happy. I often say I felt as if she was already born but God was just waiting for me to bring her home. We contemplated having a 3rd for several years and I was so scared(rough delivery with middle)….and relieved/happy at the same time when we found out. All she knows is Blakely…and she now seems like a Blakely ☺️ but it is kind of a mouthful and I don’t want her to have to deal with comments about her name constantly growing up. Is it too late to change her first name or should I just change her middle name (if any change) to have more meaning? No ties to Rose…just was simple and classic with such a unique first name. We’ve thought about Isabel (isa=strong-willed; Isabel=gift of God). Ava Blakely? 2 first names no middle? Help. I feel like I need to make peace with this quickly and either embrace it or change it. We will definitely keep Blakely as either first of middle. No family name or significant meaning to the name but she has been our Blakely for a year and my name is in her name. Kel ????
