I came across this article on nytimes.com about baby name regret that got me thinking about my own experience.
Sadie, my 20-month-old daughter, is two and I haven’t yet had any feelings of baby name regret. I do sometimes regret that it doesn’t have a sentimental backstory, like that it’s my grandmother’s name or the name I always said I’d name my first born when I was a little girl. Instead, I named my daughter after Jude Law’s ex-wife. Well, sort of. I fell in love with her name while reading some gossip site about his cheating habit, so when I found out I was having a girl, my decision was already made. Shallow, I know, but true.
