I love it! Also, I think it is great that your son came up with it. I think it will give him a special bond with the baby and a sense of pride in knowing that his input is valuable. I do agree with the others though, people have very strong opinions and as someone who has heard EVERY suggestion from EVERY family member, preface your disclosure with 'If I tell you, please don't be negative'. This phrase kept me from a hormonal tirade many a time!
All that matter is what you think. I like that it's different and really like the fact that your son picked it out. That might mean a lot to the new baby and to his big brother when he's old enough to know where his name came from. I picked unique names for my kids, too. When my 12 year old was born his name was unique (not now). People would say "oh, I've never heard of that name!" (It's Mason). My daughter's name is India and my baby's name is Griffin. I like the fact that they won't be 1 of 4 or 5 kids with the same name in their class. Go for it! You will be glad you went with your heart and not with what other people think!
I like it. It is very different. We named our second son after a character from a movie (kinda corny, I know) however when we first heard the name we thought about it and the more we did the more we loved it. His name is Kostas Alistaire. We get a lot of strange looks and get told "wow that's different" Also being that we both do not have greek backgrounds. But it is what you love and what you feel comfortable with. If by the time your baby is born and you still like the name and feel comfortable with it, then that's what it should be.
As a person with a boring, generic name like Lisa (no offense, mom!), I think it's great to have an unusual name for a child as long as it's not completely off the wall. But who cares what I think...if you love it, use it! Good luck!
I belive that the name Trax is really cute. I think the way you came to find this name is adorable. This will be a cute story to tell your son one day when he is older. I named my name Angel and everyone had a problem with it. Some people loved it and said that it was unique, while other people said it was a girls name. But, I didnt care becauce I liked the name Angel and I stuck to it until the end. My baby is 4 months and I named him Angel! So my point is that so many people will give you their opinions, but the one that counts the most is yours. You dont want to name your son something you don't like because you will be calling that name out for at least 18 years. So if you like the name Trax, then go for it, because no one knows best then mommy!
I think that it's cute, but I agree that it should only matter to you and your husband (to a point). I've heard of Trax before, as a last name and don't worry about the spelling thing though, because now days, with all of the uncommon spellings...you have spell the simplest of names!
I say go for it! If you and the father like it, that's all that matters. I have an extremely common name, and going to a school with 800+ students, just out of the people I knew, there were 10 other girls with my name. So, rfishfed, that's what happened to old-fashioned names, they are too over-used. I must say, I was miserable, and created a nickname for myself out of my name that was spelled very differently than what is the norm. Before we found out our Dominic (yes, common, but it's a family thing) was coming, our girl's pick was Emmi, something we'd never heard of.
