My squishy baby is 3 months old now and her name hasn't fit since birth. Her first name is Tessa. I want to keep her middle name and change her first name.
Am I crazy? The name we want to change it to fits her SO perfectly in my mind. Her personality and her face just fit with the 'new' name. It was actually a name we considered but I decided not to use it because it is more popular than Tessa.
I am thinking of using her new name for a month and see how it sits with me. If we love it then I will file the paperwork.
Honest opinions please?

I don't see why not. Nobody will know or remember after a couple of years. And I'd hate to be stuck with a name that doesn't feel right.

i say totally go for it, i changed my girls middle name beasue the first one was kinda just picked because it was a runner up first name but it didn't flow, so even though i love the name it was not right for her and fher full name. I'm so happy i did!
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
