I really want to use the name [name_u]Dakota[/name_u] for my new baby girl. [name_f]My[/name_f] grandfather came from [name_u]South[/name_u] [name_u]Dakota[/name_u], so it would be a way to show honor his roots of where he came form. The problem I’m torn with is that I see that some people think [name_u]Dakota[/name_u] is an offensive name due to its Native American roots. I don’t want to offend anyone, I really love the name! (I am also not Native American).
Any opinions, suggestions, thoughts or advice is much appreciated! Thank you!
