did anyone else have this?
it took us forever to decide on ds3's name. I managed to persuade dp that my favouritest name of all was ok and we went with it and got him registered.

but now i am just feeling like it isn't right. i wonder all the time if we should have called him the second choice name


but then, i worry that if we change it i'll still feel the same, but the other way round?

No, Nico is daft (unless you're Greek). Asa is cool.

Don't think it's more one than the other - so I shall amend my view to nico being daft unless you're Greek or Italian grin

But, honestly Asa is...ace - really unusual without being at all wanky. No baby suits their name, they all suit 'baby' more than anything else. Asa is quite grown up so it might take a while to settle. But I think you should stick with it!

lol don't feel bad lockets. I was dead set on Asa, and we even tried it out for 2 days and I loved using it.

but then, seeds of doubt started creeping in. I started calling him Nico in my head to see if it was "better" and now i think it suits him more!

it is true that I am an indecisive bint though haha. i have to keep stopping myself fvrom thinknig about the other names on the list too pmsl

nico is getting very popular

oh dear i like Asa, but you could always use the other name as a nickname..DH wanted to call our DD1 penelope but i didn't want it as a first name so she is Lara Penelope, DH calls her Pen most of the time, which is fine.

what does dh think?

It's early days, if the name is just wrong, why not change?

Live with it for a while and see how you feel in a few weeks or months. I think you have a year (check that!). There is always the option of Nico for a little brother...

ASa is really nice i think. stick with it...

dp would gladly change to Nico, he prefers it to Asa.

The thing I am worried about is that if we change it then i'll feel the same about Nico and wish i'd stuck with Asa lol

maybe I just need to call him Nico for a few days and see how I feel then, although i am wary of confusing the other ds's/

on which note twosunnydays, don't even jokeabout another little brother! grin 3 is plenty lol

Asa is lovely smile. Nico/Nicholas is becoming quite popular, so take that into account too.

mopsyflopsy Wed 01-Jul-09 13:48:47

Asa is much cooler/interesting than Nico. I'd stick with it!

MaggieBeeBeau Wed 01-Jul-09 13:59:31

Change it to Nico while you still can.

Asa sounds like Ass in English. It's Spanish for handle or bail, depending on context. Very odd. And I LOVE unusual names. Margot, Dulcie, Polly, Bruno, Thaddeus, Bruce, Victor, Donald..... I'm not the mum of a Jack or an Emily. (just to help you 'process' my post more effectively iyswim).

What about Enda if you like boys names ending in a?

what are your other DS's names? so we can see which 'goes' better...

Just going on Asa and Nico alone I prefer Asa, more unusual and nicer sounding

cyteen Wed 01-Jul-09 14:30:24

Asa sounds bad but Enda is acceptable? <boggle>

scattykatty Wed 01-Jul-09 14:46:34

I like Asa, different but cool

MaggieBeeBeau Wed 01-Jul-09 15:03:11

Wouldn't be a fan of Enda, but at least it doesn't sound like Ass and doesn't have some very strange meanings.

CurryMaid Wed 01-Jul-09 15:06:30

How does Asa sounds like ass?

In my head I'm pronouncing it Ay-sa, is that wrong?
