Is anyone still surprised by the name they gave their DC?

Dd's name still surprises me and she's nearly 3, we had a name in mind with 2 middle names if she was a girl, but when she was born she just wasn't that name, so after a bit of discussion we dropped the first name and just used the 2 middle names.

I still often think I can't believe she's got the name she's got, although it suits her completely and is a family name that I love, it just wasn't my first choice iyswim!

we went for a name that i would never have imagined calling my child. It begins with the same letter as our surname which was a big no no for me! It was the only name that suited her though and we absolutely love it now!

I settled for a name rather than calling DD what I really wanted to. Unfortunately I backed myself into a corner by saying she wouldn't have a religious name. I love the name Elizabeth and Gloria. Both would have sounded shocking with her surname, but still...............................
Not Elizabeth, the NN Betty.

What I mean is, do you still think to yourself 'I can't believe I have a DC called ...'

Did you get used to the name eventually and do you like the name in question?

A friend says she can't quite believe her DD has the name she does (although she does like her name) and was wondering how many others have had this thought.
