Since this is the dilemma section I couldn't resist
So some of you have already heard this dilemma. My favorite girls name is Theresa with the nicknname Tess. I have loved it for years and dh does as well. She'd fit beautifully in with our other kids names - Paul, Clare, Mark, Katharine (nn Kate) and James. The dilemma is that our last name is Tys0n. So is Theresa Tys0n terrific or terrible? Are the repeatiing T-s sounds just to over the top. Will she feel akward introducing herself to perspective employers as Theresa Tys0n? Is it a name you'd want for yourself?
Our current number 2 is Stella. Which also appeals to me but is far more popular and doesn't make me swoon the way Theresa does.
If it makes a difference, I think I'd pick a middle name like Lily, Molly, or Chloe.
We're not expecting yet - just hope to be soon.
