Aspen, Colorado, is a popular winter destination.

I was named Aspen by my father in '91 before it started gaining popularity because we lived in CO and he was enamored by the trees and thought they were so stunning, so when I was born it was a no-brainer.

While I was in elementary school, of COURSE people tried to make fun of it, but they were all so lame they didnt even have an effect on lil 6, 7, 8, 9 year old me, and actually some of my best friends, in high school, got a kick out of all the nicknames they could come up with "Aspanda, Asskittle, Asponder," and they filled out 3 pages back to back and I thought it was so cute and funny, because they didnt do it to be malicious, they did it because, yes, Aspen can be made into a bunch of different words.

And the ol' "Hey aspen, how's your ass been" was literally used by one person who was also a good friend who just thought it was comical, and I laughed then too!

Instead of worrying about what your kid is going to get made fun of for, teach them to laugh at themselves and get a sense of humor...

Now that I'm an adult EVERY TIME i tell someone my name (98%, im not kidding) they alway always say "wow what a beautiful name!" Ever since I left MIDDLE school, no one ever insulted me on my name.

and regarding Aspirin, only one person says that and he's my uncle, so he gets free reign.

When I was younger I wanted to change my name to something "normal" like melissa or jessica because I had my own self-esteem issues, but now that I'm older I would NEVER even dream of doing that. My full name is so unique people ask me if it's a stage name, and I think that's pretty dang cool.

So as a fellow Aspen-er, go ahead and name your child that! It's a great name! and every kid is going to get made fun of no matter what. in 3rd grade this girl thought she was insulting me by calling me Leafy Dog (because my last name is kinda canine related) and that was probably... the worst thing any one has called me, which is saying alot considering that's like nothing (a literal 3rd grade level insult))
