Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

You seriously need to think about how these names will impact your child. The reactions you get to these names are similar to the reactions your child will get throughout their lifetime. First impressions are a big deal, and names are huge part of first impressions. Do you really want your child to have to constantly repeat their name when meating someone new? Do you want them to have to spell their name multiple times for people? Do you want people mispronoucing their name all the time?You don't have to pick names like Sarah and John in order for your child to have an easier time. You just really need to think about what it would be like having a difficult name.I have an unusual name. I've always hated it. My mom regrets choosing it and spelling it the way she did. My husband also hates his name. We did A LOT of research on names, their meanings, possibilities for being picked on/made fun of, etc. It took us a long time to come up with traditional names with normal spellings that weren't overly common. We chose Audrey Olivia, Harrison Thomas, and Vivienne Eloise. Those might be a little plain for you, and that's fine. Just really, really think about your child when you decide on a name. Don't just choose something you think is cool, because chances are, if it's something that's very unusual, your child will have a hard time with it. And I know all too well just how much it sucks to go through life with a difficult name.

gypsy could be associated with "thief", or "traveling pyschic theif". i personally hate the named, but it's your child, not mine. i knew a girl named gypsy, and boy did she live true to the name. she was nothing more than a traveling thieving stripper. you might want to do some more research on that name before your child is stuck with it. please, please take into account what vforventure said. i could not have said it better, myself. every sentence is true. read it thouroughly, and give it some serious thought.

There is always going to be someone opposed to the name you pick out for your children. I have learned this to be true especially with family members thus making it hard to choose what you want over what they think of the name. However, at the same time, it is wise to listen to the reasons why they do not approve but never base your choice souly on the fact that someone else does not like your names.Personally, I knew a girl named Gypsy and I do not mind the name. However, I am very picky of the meanings of the names and their orgins. I am expecting my first and am experimenting with names myself. Do not let other people drain the fun out of this experience but also take caution.

Not to sound rude, but why on earth would you name a child Gypsy, or Dregon??? Have you read a dictionary? Kids are cruel already, and by giving a child a ridiculous name makes the teasing and jokes even easier for them. Annika is alright, I'm not sure if the Oaklee part is the last name or if its a mockery of Annie .. which to that I say again.. do you know the history?    Dregon Godric or whatever is just God awful.. I'm sure he will be called Dragon which .. if I were a little boy, I'd be quite upset about. Naming a child is a fun process, however, you shouldn't pick a name because of its uniquness alone. There are other more normal, as well as uncommon names to choose from. Maybe look into your family tree for a name, even a surname sometimes works well as a first name. For your childs sake, do not name them something you think is "cool" at the moment.

Gypsy Annika Oaklee is a sweet and too unique. I think, it did not matter what anybody like this name, but It should be important like you family.
