Pregnancy has been hard but the most difficult thing has got to be finding a name. The problem is that I am really picky and every name that has been suggested to me I have disliked so far. That was until I met a little girl with the name [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] and it was like something clicked. I knew in that instant that [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] was the one.
But everyone hates it on a girl apparently. My husband and parents immediately said no. I’ve been crying so much these past few weeks because I finally find a name I love and everyone hates it. I don’t want to compromise. I don’t want to have it as a middle name.
I hate the name [name_f]Jasmine[/name_f] and I like [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] for it’s sound and not it’s meaning so any names with the same meaning won’t do either. I don’t want to settle. This is my first child. I have a very good chance of having trouble with the bonding process and my doctor agrees that having a name that I’m attached to will help with relationship development.
I also sort of like the names [name_u]Vesper[/name_u], [name_u]Zephyr[/name_u], and [name_m]Griffon[/name_m] but definitely not as much as [name_m]Jasper[/name_m].
I don’t know what to do. Is [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] really that bad for a girl? Surely with all of strange names people give their children today (especially celebrities!) [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] would be tame against them?
