    Smile Help with baby name - your advice appreciated!!

    Hi all im reasonably new here. Been reading through the forums for the past 7 months since i found out i was pregnant but never made a post until now.
    We know we are having a little girl in a months time and are stuck with names. We both really like the name Azalea Rose but made the mistake of telling a few friends and family and have had some mixed reactions. Some dont know how to pronounce it and others think its too long or simply dont like it.
    What does everyone here think?
    A few other names we have been considering are Savannah, Winter and Eden.
    Just wanted some advice on what people think and if they think our little girl would be teased or find it hard having to spell out her name all the time etc.
    Looking forward to hearing your responses.

    Congrats of your DD don't worry about what other people think! If you love it go for it - Azalea as in the flower? It's cute , I also love Eden ( which will be one of our names if tummy baby is a girl )

    I think all those names are nice.
    You are always going to get people who don't like your choice but in the end it's up to you, it's your bub

    I love all your names above. We are keeping our name choices secret from EVERYONE because of this very reason! My MIL cannot pronounce the dogs name correctly (Ralph - she says Rolph) and we are worried she won't be able to pronounce some of the names we have chosen but we love them so too bad!

    I dislike Azalia, sorry!

    Not a fan of Winter

    Savannah is ok but don't love it

    Eden is cute!

    All sound ok with middle name Rose

    I like them all.

    Winter is super cute and well she was born in winter

    Eden is very fresh, sweet and lovely.

    Suvannah is nice - I LOVE suzannah.

    Go with the name you love. Both my children's names are rather unique (especially my ds) their names had alot of mixed reactions but we loved them and are so happy we named them their names as they suit them so well.

    Azalea and Rose are lovely names, although since they are both flowers I personally wouldn't use them together as it seems a bit... odd? Don't worry what anyone else thinks though!
