We love [name_m]Parkin[/name_m] for our baby boy because it means “[name_m]Little[/name_m] [name_m]Peter[/name_m]” and my husband is a [name_m]Peter[/name_m] the 3rd. We aren’t really interested in having a 4th but we think [name_m]Parkin[/name_m] is such a sweet way to carry on the tradition.
Our issue is that it might be a lifetime of people mishearing it as [name_u]Parker[/name_u]. Which isn’t the worst thing, I just know from personal experience that it can get annoying constantly correcting people.
What do you think? Should we let the similarities stop us from using a name that we love and that holds meaning to us or just hope that he isn’t bothered by correcting people? Am I overthinking it? [name_f]My[/name_f] husband doesn’t think it’s a big deal at all but I’m just not sure.
