Chesapeake and Chasadee and Charlie
I have two daughters and one son Chesapeake(6), Chasadee(4), and Charlie(2). The other day somebody made a comment about how naming my daughter Chesapeake was very disrespectful considering I am not of Native American heritage. I had not thought of it as disrespectful when I'd named her so it threw me off guard. Then the same person mentioned that my fourth child that I am pregnant with at the moment had better be named with a 'ch' so I could 'keep what ever pattern going that I had started.' and the lady also mentioned that I had better 'think up a weird name in case it's a girl.' All of these insults hit me at one time and I wasn't sure how to react. Is naming my daughter Chesapeake disrespectful? I thought that it was the same as naming a child Dakota or something like that. And are my childrens names concidered 'weird'? Is it weird or cheesy that all of their names start with 'ch'? I named Chesapeake first, then thought that Chasadee would compliment that nicely. Then Charlie came along and my husband liked the name. We thought that it went well with the girls's names. Now my future baby that's due in three months is coming and I'm debating the name we'd choosen. It's a girl and we thought that the name Charisee was beautiful. Now I'm having doubts about it. What should I do?
