I desperately need help and I think your advice will be just what I need !!!
We found out we are having a baby boy - and although initially I wanted a girl
I think I always knew it was a boy because my hubby and I had picked out our boy name for the longest time.
[name]Kai[/name] …we were married in hawaii and love everything about the sea, so it was a special name for us we were excited to use.
I have to preface now that we are [name]Asian[/name] american and Chinese.
I did of course run this by my parents who of course are simply trying to be helpful and they brought up some good points which bummed us out a little. They said although [name]Kai[/name] is a great name - it sounds to asian for an asian baby. People will think we are just spelling out his Chinese name. Now I can’t stop thinking about this comment, and of course as much as it is our choice - I want the name to be perfect!
So can you berries please give me your opinion - if you saw an American [name]Asian[/name] baby named [name]Kai[/name] - do you think it is too stereotypical?
I had wanted something strong fresh and unique - not how shall I put this delicately - " Chinese sounding" which my hubby and I barely know how to speak anyways. ( And I can’t run this by others because we are trying to keep the name a secret)
The only other name we love is [name]Landon[/name] or [name]Landen[/name] , but our very close friends named their baby son [name]Brandon[/name]…
we have a tight knit circle of friends - do you think this sounds too close ? Considering they may be playing together alot ?
Ideally it was between [name]Kai[/name] [name]Landen[/name], or [name]Landen[/name] [name]Kai[/name]
Thanks so much for your input! I feel like I am going crazy when the boy name was suppose to be a no brainer!!!
