Do you like this name?

I am due in December and my dh and I have been talking names... He really likes the name Faustina Katheryn. We wouldn't shorten it because we don't like the name Tina (no offense to anyone named Tina). LOL! I would like to hear what others think about it. We aren't telling any family members the name, so I can't get their opinions. Oh, and we don't even know if we are having a girl, but we do need to be prepared.

Thanks,
HEather

Hi Heather! I personally don't care for the name, when I read it I think of a faucet (maybe I'm pronouncing it wrong though ). but again that's just IMO.

Re: Do you like this name?

Hi Heather!
When I first looked at it, i wasn't sure how to say it. I like unique names, though! LOL! I say if you and dh like it, then go for it! If this one is a girl, we'll have a heck of a time coming up with a name we agree on! LOL!

Good luck


ETA: that when i first saw it, I thought faucet-ina... then I looked at it again, and saw that there was no "e".

Re: Do you like this name?

Not a big fan of the first name...but then I was an English major and Faustus was a kind of evil character. Sold his soul to the devil, if I remember right. I do like the name Katheryn though. It's my mom's name and a variant of my name. I considered carrying it on for my daughter and naming her Katrina, but MAN am I glad I didn't do that!!! Unfortunately there's no way to avoid all negative associations with any name...so if YOU love it, go for it!
GL!

My thoughts exactly. How do you pronounce it? It's a little too "out there" for me, but if it's a name you love, it will become her

Did you know Katrina means pure, purification ?

And you are right, it seems someone will always find a way to make something negative out of anything....

When i read the name Faustina first I thought false-tina....
It would not be my personal choice, but do not go one what anyone else thinks mama, you and your dh go on what YOU two want!!

Its not really my cup of tea either, but heck... everyone said "like the guy who wrote Dracula????" whenever we told people what we were going to name Bram, so name her whatever you feel in your heart is right!
