Are you still loving the name you chose, or do you think another name would have been better?

Still love all three names I chose. I do think Eloise would have made a great Hazel, but she is totally an Eloise so I am quite happy with her last minute name change.

Sullivan is so a Sully, I have never had a moment of name regret in his name in the past 6 months.

And I still love Desmond's name and it fits him perfectly, though I will admit I wasn't positive about it for the first 6 months or so, now he is 4 1/2 though I couldn't imagine him having any other name.



Thank you for the sig Mary

Had I known Ethan and Logan were going to rise so much then yes, I would have named them differently.

I still love Charlie, probably even more than I did when I chose it. It suits my little guy just perfectly. But I do wish there were fewer other Charlies running around. There was one in his class at school for a while, and now there's another in the other same-age class so he runs into him on the playground. One of my good friends (who I met when I moved here when my Charlie was 1 year old) also has a Charlie around the same age, and they like to play together. We call it a "two Charlies" playdate.

I am having a really rough time trying to convince Charlie that his full name is Charles, though. He just laughs and doesn't believe me!

I don't undestand why people would mess up Madeline.

I would mess it up...those -line endings are stumpers for me.

Yup, that's how I feel. I have both a Madeline and a Madeleine in my class this year. They both pronounce it -lynn. Go figure. Fortunately, MadelINE goes by Maddie, so it makes life easier.

3 1/2 years later--right now I am happy with Hannah Jane's name. There've been times I wasn't, but now I am.

Almost 2 years later--never a twinge of regret for naming my son Peter Sidney III. Although I still wish we had a better nickname; nothing seems to suit him... We call him Peter, Pete Sid, Peter Sidney, Boy, Sidney, Sid, Pete, and some other spinoffs (Boyling) or combos (Boy Sid).
