Bad first/last name combo?

We are still working on our name list, but one of my fav girl names has always been [name]Brooklyn[/name]. My concern is that our last name is “Copp”. I worry people will think city/police. Would you think this? Or am I totally over-analyzing?

I would definitely think this.

When it comes to first name/surname combos you sometimes have to let a name go because of sound or meaning. This might be one of them.

I have to agree with pp, I don’t think you are over-analyzing.

Nope - I agree with you, bad combo.

I would skip any place / word names, honestly.

I agree with the others. If you like it so much, though, maybe you could use it as a mn.

That’s a shame because it actually sounds really really really well fit of you don’t think about the meaning!

Here are some similar names to [name]Brooklyn[/name]:

Yeah, it doesn’t sound good.

No it doesn’t sound too good. I’m sorry.

[name]Don[/name]'t do it, please don’t do it.

Your daughter would never hear the end of the jokes.

Boy, doesn’t it suck when a name you’ve loved for ever has to be thrown out because of hubby’s/SO’s last name?
Unfortunately, I’d say place names are out for you

I agree- place names aren’t going to go well with your last name.
If it helps, my surname used to be [name]Parks[/name]- so yeah, place names were out for our family too! :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone for the honesty! The last thing I want to do is pick a name that I will regret later. We have other names on our list, so I’m sure we’ll come up with something!

Greenkoko: thanks for posting the list. There are several that I really like!
