I really can’t stand when people put a lot of pressure on the child to live up to their name meaning. What if Joy Duggar wasn’t always joyful? What if little Debbie isn’t a warrior for Christ? I think it’s completely ridiculous to saddle a newborn with expectations from day one. 

I’m screwed then: one meaning of my name is “gift of God.”

Mine too.  Idk about you but I am an epic fail at living up to that.

Firstly I am so glad Mel had an good pregnancy and got a lovely healthy baby. I also quite like the name Deborah. I  note that the doctor was referred to as 'she'. How fuckin' dare these people refuse education or even autonomy to females with one breathe and then see a female doctor. Pisses me the hell off!!!

In theory I agree with you 100%.  But if they are going to be hypocrites I'm glad it was to the end of proper medical care.

Here’s my main beef with the bane: it’s clunky. 

The second band should have three syllables, like Deborah. Deborah Carolyn (or Caroline or Carolann) — that (those) have a lilt to them. A rhythm, if you will. 

Deborah Carol.  [screeching brake sound]

JMHO but I’m stickin’ to it. True to my baby-boomer-hood, two of my closest friends are Deborah and Carolyn.

My name means "God is gracious". (I think lots of names are some variation of that.) I feel no pressure from that meaning, thankfully!

The way I see it, our God Rufus has been extremely gracious in blessing us with you! :)

Well. Yes. I am glad they got proper care too. Still. Grrr.

But it’s pronounced with 2 syllables- like Debra, so Deborah Carol fits your rhythm.
