I posted yesterday afternoon but didn’t get much response, so I thought I’d try again. My husband and I are desperate for opinions. .
I’m head over heels for the name [name]Adiah[/name]. I can’t shake it. It means “ornament of Jehovah” in Hebrew and feels like a significant declaration of our faith and the hope we have that our daughter will be a unique expression of God to our world. However, I worry about how the name will be recieved. . . I have a feeling most will not be able to pronounce it. I have an extremely common name, so I’m not familiar with the repercussions of possessing a name few recoginize and pronounce correctly. Should this even be a concern? Also, I worry about it looking made up or seeming like a cultural mismatch particularly on a resume (we’re of Irish/Swedish decent). Should I toss it out and look for something new, or do you think it would be well recieved?? Also, our son’s name is [name]Jonah[/name] [name]Elliot[/name]. [name]Do[/name] you think it’s an ok sibset? Thanks so much for your help! I truly value your opinion!
