Baby name remorse...please help
We had a beautiful baby girl 11 days ago, and we decided to name her Olivia Michele...we had to come up with something as 2 days had already gone by and everybody was hounding us to decide on a name....however now that I'm home and settled in I'm finding it a little hard to say all the time being 4 syllables, and the more I'm thinking about it... I'm not sure i want to always be calling her Liv or Livi?? I'm also finding that I'm not calling her by Olivia just for the fact that its a little hard for me to say?? Ugh I hate that I'm having reservations and second thoughts..,please tell me I'm not the only one??...the other name that Im thinking I should've chosen is Stella...either Stella Rose or Stella Grace...just easier to say, two syllables and still goes nicely with her sister Molly Jade ,and with our last name Goldberg?!?
Anyhow....my husband is totally fine with changing her name, and agrees its little hard saying the four syllable Olivia all the time...the rest of the family probably won't agree I'm sure... But it's not their child so I should do what makes me happy right??
ugh... I don't know what to do... Is it bad to change a baby's name? It's only been 11 days- I highly doubt she knows her name yet..it's not like she's older and knows it and responds to it yet?? Is it a big hassle to change it on the birth certificate and social security card?? -neither of which we've received back in the mail yet.
Sorry for the long rambling on, but this has been weighing on me for a few days now and had to get it off my chest.
Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated, thanks in advance
