"Matching" First name to Surname
Just wanted to get everyone's thoughts on pairing a first name with a surname. I grew up as: Caitlin + [very Italian Surname]. This first name/last name combo was apparently such an egregious naming infraction that it seemed like just about everyone I met felt the need to mention that my two names did not "match". My new/married surname is less obvious in origin but not Italian ("Drummings" -"Dr" +"C") - do you think if I chose a name like "Olivia" or "Amelia" my daughter would get the same reaction I did or do you think this only happens when the two names are extremely different in origin?
