I have never liked it - I was pressured into using it - 20%
It's not distinctive enough - 11%
It causes him/her problems with spelling/pronunciation - 11%
It doesn't suit him/her - 11%
Everyone calls him/her by a shortened version of the name, which I don't like - 6%
I have never liked it - I don't know why we chose it - 6%
There's been a shift in public perception of the name since my child was born - 3%
I worry that he/she won't be taken seriously - 2%

This part breaks our heart…apparently one of the most regretted name was Elsa… we will not 'let it go' thank you very much.
