Thank you for the responses! Sorry for not answering sooner, but I’m still getting used to rangling a newborn and an 18 month old!
I don’t feel comfortable telling the name because I think people I know are on here…. but it is a common name like John or Paul. Definitely not something crazy! I shouldn’t have said I was “embarrassed” about the name. It was more so that I didn’t want to tell the world in case we changed it.
One of the reasons I gave in to the name was because it has a cute nickname, but no one has been calling him that except me and some of DHs friends. So I talked to my husband about it and told him how I felt. He said that he really likes the name he picked and doesn’t want to change, but he would start calling him by the nickname and he would start politely correcting people who call him by his “formal” name.
He also admitted to me that he kind of hated our daughters first name at first, but it grew on him. So in this case as long as we call him by the nickname I think I will be OK keeping it!
