Can we overcome this cultural association?
After more than 3 years of TTC, 2 painful HSGs, Physical Therapy, and eventually giving up we are thrilled to be expetcting our 2nd child! Its very early and we won't know if we need a boys name or a girls name for a few months, but I can't help but start planning them out asap.
Our daughter has a long formal first name and goes by a nickname (one option of several her first name lends). I would absolutely want to that again for a daughter, giving her options for different nicknames throughout childhood, rebelious teenagerhood, and adulthood. I realize that means that I really only get to pick her initial nickname.
And so, very long story short, I am absolutely loving Lilou for the nn of a new baby girl, but DH is sure everyone will immediately think of a certain sci-fi movie that is more than a decade (or two?) old and I would just like some honest feedback on on first thoughts on a baby nn Lilou? Do you think of a sci-fi char? Any other negative associations I should be aware of?
