I have no kids but if I had a girl I have her name all picked out. I have no clue what I would name a boy. I hate my name. My mother didn't name me my aunt did. Do you regret what you named your kid? Do you call them a different name because of this regret?

Interesting. I found out my name means pure in Latin. I still don't like it :)

There are ways in that article to go about changing it.

The funny thing is that I have no idea what I would change it to.

No, I do not regret naming my kids. I love their names and am glad my husband and I agreed on naming them this. We ALMOST named our youngest son something else, but neither of us really liked the name we came up with. Luckily my husband's parents spoke up about the name...just days before I gave birth to my son, otherwise we would have given him this name and we would have regretted it.

Glad you like them but the question is do your kids like their names? :)

I asked my youngest and he said he does. I don't know if my oldest does or not as he is autistic and basically non-verbal. If he could let me know either way, it would make my day! :*)

I just don't like the way it sounds.

I thought that I had the perfect name chosen for my daughter. i had never heard it before and it was perfect. And then some young singer was born with the same name... now there are zillions of them walking the world lol. Should have stuck with her middle name!
