So torn! (Dashiell and Mark)
So my DH and I have narrowed it down to two names: Dashiell (my DH’s favorite – he loves the nn Dash), and Mark (my favorite – named after my father). We’re pretty sure this baby will be either Mark Dashiell or Dashiell Mark. My DH is fine with having Mark as the first name, but then he still wants to call the baby Dash. I’ve never really liked the idea of going by a middle name, so if we’re going to call him Dash, then I would rather that be his first name. However, while I do really like the name, I’m having trouble “biting the bullet” on an unusual first name. Part of me really wants to have a more traditional name as the first name. I’m so torn! I don’t know if I’m brave enough to give him the first name Dashiell (even though I do like it).
Any help or advice would be SO appreciated!!
