DH is really stuck on Ayse, and while I love, love, love that name, I know it will also involve a lot of explanation and may induce some irritating comments (much like Aydin's)
No nickname for this baby yet! I need to come up with one though
oh man! I would be totally cool with you naming your baby neyla even if ours is a girl. I know they would be the only two neylas born in this country and if they ever met, they wouuld totally know that their moms knew each other. haha. it would be cool! my dh has a really unsual first name and his mother best friend named her son the same thing! So go for it!!! Then our little Neyla's will always know they have a name twin out there somewhere
Dont worry about the annoying people. I always get "a girl named charlie?" and then I say, "its a nickname, her real name is charlotte, obviously." like they soooo should have known because it so obvious.
I think telling people this babies name is turkish will be a sense of pride and give baby a sense of belonging. hopefully, it wont make him/her feel as though he/she isnt welcome or doesnt really belong here. Thats why ill pick an american name too. in case he/she wants to use that name to avoid bullying
but anne and baba will always call him by the turkish one! but aydin sounds like it could be american. just one that less known. im sure nosey people are just jealous because its such an awesome name! haha.
