Yes, I posted on the stupid name board here in my last tri. Now every day I say my son's name and get mad that I listened to those posts. I wanted "Maxim" with the nickname "Max" and everyone said they thought of the magazine when they saw it.
So when the time came, my husband and I went with our roots and spelled the name in the Eastern European form "Maksim." I really loved "Max" and now I get mad when I write "Maks."
I really wish I had kept the name to myself and not given a rat's bottom about what anyone thought of the name. We didn't tell family and friends because we didn't want to hear criticism, but I couldn't contain my anxiety. Now, I am sad.
(Oh, and I can't STAND when people make me repeat his name. No, it is NOT Maxine. That is a girl's name!)
Make me feel better. Does anyone else have a name regret?
