A close family member that recently passed away was nicknames Peaches and was know as this her whole life. We are having a girl and want to honor her by naming out daughter after her. I am afraid that since this name is so untraditional and eccentric, I will get a lot of grief about it. The family has given us their blessing and are so touched, but I don't know how I feel about constantly needing to defend my name choice to those who didn't know her and how special she was. I am contemplating using Peaches as the middle name (and nick name) instead to avoid the potential drama, but don't see why I should feel badly about naming her with such a cute and unique name. Do I need to grow a pair and go with the bold name, or tone it down by using it as a middle name?
