We are trying for our fourth and final baby and have been having lots and lots of name discussions (which I love) but my husband is stuck on a name (which I like well enough, it has a cool sound) but I’m worried is a bit… taboo? He LOVES Hades. Like loves it loves it, would totally name a child it, but will settle for it being a middle name. I want to give him this because he’s agreeing to my favourite girl’s name (and as a first too!) so I feel like there needs to be a compromise. But I’m nervous that people will think I’m insane.
The name we’re thinking is [name_u]Mason[/name_u] [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] Hades (if not, it would be [name_u]Declan[/name_u] [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] Hades–we go back and forth sometimes). So it would be the second middle. And I do like it as a name, I’m just worried it won’t be well received and I’ve tried already many many times to talk him out of it but he just loves it so much. So what do you think? Other mythological names are becoming more mainstream ([name_f]Freya[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]) and others I’ve seen used at least (like [name_m]Apollo[/name_m]) and middle names you can usually take more of a chance with, right? I just don’t know. Thoughts?
