Nope.
I'd rather have something I'm totally in love with, even if it doesn't flow.

I think flow is what makes me love it. But u have to like the name of course. I think that name is beautiful.

see, normally i say i have to LOVE it, not just like it, but i'm not finding what goes right with it. i have a few that i'm not sure fit with it but i love the names so i'm on the fence...

I think it flows really nicely, personally.
With DS, SO named him and I wasn't super pleased with his choice. I didn't think it flowed well and I thought he'd picked a dirty hippie name, lol. Then I looked at DS and knew right away it was perfect for him.

I don't like DS#2's name. I just stuck with it to get SO to shut the hell up.



Next kid, IM picking.

I picked DS's 1st name & DH picked his middle name. Ezekiel Matthew. I always loved Zeke as a nickname but I didn't love Matthew at all. DH did though so I caved. DH's list was an interesting one:



Matthew
Hezekiah
Malachi




Not that those aren't fabulous but I just wasn't digging them lol



I had Kairi Jade picked out for a girl but originally I wanted to use Rain or Moon as a girl name but DH said I needed to get my head out of the sky lol

I love it too but SO's last name is Rushing so... we have a little flower baby\, for sure. Which is fine, I still love it now. But in the beginning I was like "nooo...whenever I call to register him for things, people are going to think we're vegan pothead hula hoopers with dreadlocks."
Then I realized I don't care what anyone thinks, lol.
And i lovelove the name Maggie too. I've known several Maggies, all of whom were lovely people and it definitely made me love the name even more.
