Thoughts On Gwyneth
As much as I try, I can't seem to make myself get over the name Gwyneth. I feel likes it's off limits because of you know, goop, since I don't really plan on naming my baby after a celebrity, particularly such a polarizing one. I wouldn't have any qualms about a Kate or a jennifer or even a Keira or angelina, but since gwyneth is so unusual (I've never met one, currently not in the top 1000 in any state after it's little bubble a couple years back) I feel like it dooms it's wearer to "oh, like Gwyneth Paltrow" forever, and I really don't want that- I'm going for unusual, and even though I don't worry about her meeting other little gwyneths, the constant comment would be kind of the same thing.
Basically I'm asking: do you get this same feeling about gwyneth? Should it be off limits? Or alternately, do you think gwyneth Paltrow will be over soon and she'll only have to deal with that for her early childhood? How bad would the question be, realistically?
ps- other girl favorites include Beatrix, evangeline (although probably too popular), Edith, bryony, felicity, and August. Suggestions are welcome, wild is fine- particularly if you have middle name ideas, that's wide open and I'm all about crazy there. My apologies for any typos and all my capitalization errors, I'm typing on my phone and too lazy to fix them :)
