No I'd keep them. I questioned dd's name for weeks but it really suits her.

Re: If you could name your kids again, would you name them the same?

Hmm, no major changes, but I'd take out one of youngest ds's middle names and override dh's decision to not have my boys NZ indigenous middle names on their birth certificates. They each have 2 middle names, but the indigenous NZ name is not on their certificates, dh said they'd have people spelling it wrong all their lives.

I'm kind of embarrassed to admit I would probably change my kiddos names if I could choose them all by myself and hubby loved the names. Don't get me wrong I LOVE their names but they're names dh and I chose together, if I could choose them all on my own dd would be Addison or Carys, ds would be Everett or Asher

I had been set on DD's name for a while before we had her and DH & I both love it. DD2's name has never felt right (we have already changed it minorly) but I think she'll grow into it. I LOVE her middle name, but just never found that 'perfect' totally fitting first name. Mind you, I was stuck calling DD 'Bean' for the longest time; it was just what I knew her as(!) so I think DD2's name will feel better to me when she's a little older

I'd spell his mn Reilly instead of Riley but otherwise yes, I love the name Jack and it really does suit him.

Yes.

Although I hate how popular one is becoming. However, I wouldn't change it given the chance.

I would change DS's middle name to my husband's first name, instead of picking the name of a long time mentor of my DH & mine. We have changed it in our hearts though & DS actually refers to himself that way when he's playing.

My DD1 & DD2 I would leave the same, I love the meanings of their first names & both of their middle names are family names.

As a side note though...I really hate how after we intentionally pick names that we literally have never ever heard (IRL) before, the moment our children are born every Harry, D**k, & Sally know someone who just named their baby that same name! My DS's name is actually in the top 100 now...but for GIRLS!

Re: If you could name your kids again, would you name them the same?

The only thing I would change about DD's name (Abigail Elizabeth) is her middle name .
She is most definitely an Abigail, the name fits her perfectly . The only reason I would change her middle name of Elizabeth is that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the name as a first name and I wish I would have saved it for when we have another DD.

DS's name (Jackson Hayes) is perfect ! He is named after grandparents . The only thing I dislike about his name is that Jackson is super popular around here. We very rarely call him Jackson.
