Well, it went about as well as MODG's online experiment ...the one parent I told absolutely despised the name. Even the first name, which is actually a normal and real name! I thought just the middle name would be the kicker, but it was whole thing. It didn't bother me -- instead I started judging the names of her kids in my head and I got all nasty!
Because baby 2 is a part of my family, I'm (mostly) sure she'll rock her name and really love it! (Unless she's built like a brick house -- then she'll hate me and her ultra-feminine, happy name.)
So my little experiment just re-affirmed my decision to keep my name a secret until baby 2 is born and it's official. Then people can voice their opinions.
On an unrelated note...Alyssa Lou is a cheerleader! She even has her own groupies (Lulu & Scarjo!) to watch her practice.
Such a rockstar:
