We had hoped and prayed and finally got our perfect little girl. While thinking about names we agreed to avoid A's because we are both A's and didn't want to leave our 2 yr old son out who is a B. When she was born, my husband said, "her name is Ava". But we went with Bria Linae. I was more partial to Brooke but he thought Bria was cuter.
I feel I should tell you- We are not crazy weirdos but from that first week home it just didn't seem right. She is now 9 mos old and it still bothers me. I don't ever call her by her name. I want to cry that we are experiencing this namers remorse. I never expected such regret. My husband recently confessed he was never really in love with the name either. We feel it best to change it now but are not sure what exactly it should be. We've been consumed be this. People ask what Bria is short for or have no reaction to her name at all other than "that's different". We want people to hear our daughters name and say, "that's as beautiful as she is". I feel we've failed and have to correct this. She is so important to us! We need to get this right. I would love a classic name with a cute nn. Any suggestions?
