Last minute doubts - Minka?

I think I mentioned Minka on this board at one point and it was not met with rave acceptance. But it's on my mind again. I know it's nick-namey, but there's obviously something in the "nka" sound I really like, hence my first daughter's name. Minka and Bianca.

I think that I like Minka, & the uncommon factor of it is very appealing.

I think Minka is more unique and edgier.

OMG! Fox and "mink"a. That would have never crossed my mind. Although I do have "bee" already. That's how her name is spelled over her bed. Whoops. Guess I have a thing with animals.

That's a good point that people will get over it. I am a little worried about confusing my toddler because she very clearly understands this baby is Stella.

Meh, I'm over Juliet. Maybe not. I don't know. I said this before, but Stella is the tweed of names. It only feels good if you're the only one doing it.

Minka on the other hand, I haven't heard anywhere. I saw it in a baby name book, then did the google and realized there's an actress named Minka Kelly, but who cares about her? Let's hope she stays lukewarm in the fame department.

I don't know who I'm kidding anyway though. The hubs likes to shake on decisions we make and not revisit them. I could offer him a bar of gold to replace his soap, but if we already decided on the soap, soap is it.

Update. Wow. For some reason Minka Kelly is all over the news today because she was cast as one of the new Charlie's Angels. I cannot get a break. I'm sure Minka will be the new Isabella.

Not to laugh at you Jenna but that IS pretty funny.

Exactly. I should write a trend-watch book called What Not To Name Your Daughter: Anything Appealing To Me. It's not like I'm searching for a name absolutely no one has. I just want it to be special. And I don't want to feel accused of bandwagoning. Even though I seem to absorb trends like osmosis.

I'm on my own nerves! AHHH!

I think it'd be cute if you had a Bee, Mink, & a Fox. :)
