My husband and I have been trying to agree on a boy's name for ages, only being able to find one name that we both adore. Jack. However, We wanted Daniel to be his middle name as it is for a very dear friend who recently passed away. Both names are strong and great on their own. Nonetheless I can't get past the reference to whiskey. Is the name really as awful as I think that it is, or will he go through life unscathed?
If in fact it is as obnoxious as I feel that it is, would taking the D from Daniel and finding a different name instead still do our friend the justice I want, or should we scrap Jack and start from scratch to find a new first name to keep Daniel?
