    Hey

    If you really dislike your daughter's name change it. I would if I was in the same position. It'll be easier to change it now than later, when she's much older. Ruby is a cute name though.

    I don't really care for DD's middle name but she's 6 now so I think it's too late to change it. I liked it initially but now, not so much. At least it's her middle name though so it won't get used much.

    I think if you really hate it change it! Change it now while she is still young and it won't be confusing for her.

    I think if you feel so strongly about it you should change it! Tell do how important it is and how you feel, this isn't the first time you have spoke about it!
    I can't imagine her not being ruby!! But lilah is a beautiful name too!!

    I had my name legally changed on my by parents when I was a toddler, as my dad decided he disliked the way my name was spelled. It is a pain in the backside. Now every time I have to fill in any sort of form I have to include my previous name (as a name previously know by - AKA) and of course these days my maiden name as well..make form filling very tedious. I wish they had just left..I wouldn't have know any different...

    Just a different perspective...

    I knew a family that changes their Childs name 4 times. All over
    The first few weeks after
    She was born. They didn't care what people thought. They would get lots of congratulations cards all with different names, it was very funny and would always give us a laugh.
    Think of it as a good story to tell
    Her when she's older

    I would change it if you really hate it that much. Wondering why you disklike it so much and how did you choose that name in the first place?

    I like the name personally

    Yeah it's no good if you really don't like her name - and it's not a big deal if u want to change it! Do what you like!

    Im actually thinking of changing DS's surname... As I gave him my late pop's surname as DP and I split before he was born, and I don't like my surname. But now I kinda regret that and want to change it do we have the same surname.

    what does her dad think?
    i'd be speaking to him before thinking about changing it.
    and i would think really hard about what kaybay said about the legalities too.

    i think it's a gorgeous name and at the end of the day, you agreed to name her that. just use a nickname if it really bothers you.
