I am expecting a girl in [name]March[/name]. My first DD’s name is [name]Anneliese[/name]. I get nothing but complements on the name- however, my choice for my second DD, [name]Allegra[/name], is getting panned because everyone associates it with a cold medicine ([name]Allegra[/name] D)
I wanted something melodic, elegant and romantic which goes with [name]Anneliese[/name] and I feel that [name]Allegra[/name] fits the bill. I love the name! However 75% of the people I’ve told make a face at it. What to do when you feel a name is right for your child? I don’t think kids will know about the darn medicine and certainly it will be phased out soon — its not like I’m naming her Tylenol for heaven sakes!
The authors of the [name]Baby[/name] Name Bible gave it a star as an overall great pick but mentioned nothing about this drug association. Wondering what y’all think. Thanks for your honest input!
