Baby Name Dilemna
Ok, so we are nearly there. Our decision on a girl name is sorted. We are going with Robyn.
The boys name we are more apprehensive of. The name we have and thought we had finalised on is Ruan.
Now, theres a few issues that are causing us concern. We like the name, but our mothers are quite outspoken, and we worry they will not like the unusualness of it.
The name is Afrikaans, and is their version of the name Rowan. Means "Little Red One".
The other concern is that where we live, this name is unheard of. Nobody else will have it. Nobody else except for the person from whom our knowledge of the name came to be. He's a South African rugby player who plays with our biggest club. (You may know him)
The issue being nearly EVERYBODYS response is going to be "oh, named after the rugby player"?
What do you all think? Should we cut our losses and go for something less unusual or just grin and bare it knowing that we like the name?
