I think Caspian is GREAT name for boy! I named my daughter Kasmira. Not many people liked it either but those same people look at her now and say, “She looks like a Kasmira.” It’ll be ok. They will get over it eventually. 🙂

I don’t think you’re going to do yourself any favors by posting here and looking for more outside opinions. If you love it, then use it. You’re his parents so no-one else matters.

However, since you asked… I’m honestly not a fan.

Not my cup of tea, but honestly, if you like the name, stick with it. Not everyone is going to like every name you pic.

MIL didn’t like our name choices at first, but she grew to accept our daughters’ name.

I think it’s nice because it is original and its your baby so you should name it what you want.  But I think it seems a bit old school for this time and age.

I think she should cram it and that you two should name him Caspian if that’s the name you love.

That being said, it sounds a little fruity to me.  But who cares – I’m an internet stranger!

First of all, congratulations on the baby!

I actually like Caspian quite a lot! It reminds me of Prince Caspian from the Chronicles of Narnia books. I don’t really see what’s “weak” about the name at all. I say if you and your husband like the name, that’s what is most important. Good luck!

I don’t love it, but I wouldn’t say it’s terrible.  Your sister in law seems to care way too much about this.  You like the name, go for it.

Don’t worry about other opinions; go with what you you love!

Fwiw, I got some weird reactions to our name choices while I was pregnant; since our kids were born, though, I’ve only gotten compliments.  Once there’s an actual human being attached to that name, people seem to get a lot less critical.

@UpstateCait:  

+1 I also do not like the name, but who cares? If YOU love it, then YOU name your child that! She can name her own kid Jacob if she loves it so much!

@Emma82:  I think it’s fine. If she wants, she can name her own son Jacob. There’s nothing wrong with Jacob, but there’s nothing wrong with Caspian either. Just tell her that the decision’s been made, and that her opinion/advice wasn’t sought and is therefore unwelcome,.
