I have a 6-week old daughter named Kaori Paz. I have been switching off between Kaori and "K", but neither of them feel totally right to me. I have tried calling her Paz some times but that does not feel natural yet either. Paz makes more sense to me because her dad and I are getting divorced (he treated me terribly). He picked out the first name and I picked the middle. Paz also means peace and she is my little pillar of peace right now. I have an idea what to do but I am just curious of some objective opinions. Which do you girls like better?
This is what she looks like. I can't really decide which she looks more like either.
My kids watch a TV show on TLC with a little penguin named Paz, it's cute. I do think it's a bit boyish but that doesn't really matter as it won't make your daughter masculine, she will make it feminine.
You know, if you aren't feeling the love for her name the way it is, why not change it completely, and legally? Or keep Paz but change her first name. One of my mom's best friends changed her little girl's name at 9 months - and none of us can even imagine her with a name other than the one she changed it to, it really fits her. It's much easier to change it in the first year than later on.
How are you pronouncing her name? Kay-ori ? How about shortening it to Kay or Kae.....?

Hmm Paz is nms but Kaori is cute. I can see your point though if your ex chose it. Changing it completely would be tough on everyone around her but how about just varying the first name slightly? Like drop the a and make it Kori? (Cory) Or drop the o and do Kari? (Carrie) I believe you can legally change it with only one parent's signature. I, personally, would play around with slight variations of the first name until I found something close that I liked. Good luck!!
Thank you so much, Jessica "dettmer26", for the beautiful siggie!
