Hi! I have a friend who is in the same situation!
she became mom last January and called her daughter "Vittoria" (we are italian) , she was sure of that name, and liked it very much, but few weeks later she changed her daughter's name in "Gaia" because she was feeling bad about her choise.... fine but a week later she have changed again in "Alessia"...... fine but now she comes back on "Vittoria"... I think that it is postpartum depression...
unfortunately this isn't a joke...that is true

If you think the name Agustin Jones will be problematic and could cause for bullying when he is older, I think going as A.J. would be a good option. This way he can still hold the value of his name and avoid confusion and kids possibly making fun of him. Plus its short, easy to remeber, and fun. As he gets even older he will most likely embrace his name and cherish it. I would not regret naming him something so meaningful.

My husband wanted to name our second son Alexander. I realy didn't want that name at all and made it quite clear prior to his birth. On the day I went in to labor the contractions turned out to be much more painful than with my first son. We had to drive 45 minutes to get to the hospital durring the summer, durring road construction. It was the closest hospital that would do a v-bac. (Atempted natural birth after a previouse c-section) The labor was so painful I begged for drugs the moment I was rolled through the door. After a while it was clear to all of us that another c-section was needed. Unlike my first c-section I was druged up and very agreeable. So when Alex was born they asked for a name and my husband said Alexander. I smiled and agreed. When the drugs wore off I was a bit angry at my husband, and for months after I continued to dislike the name and wanted to leagaly change it as soon as possible. Well I never got around to changing it, and now hes six. After a while I got use to his name and I couldn't imagin him not being my little Alex.
