I need serious help! I'm not sure where this choice will land me!

I've been through this once before..... a name crisus! My first name is close to a relative's; but it doesn't have the same meaning at all! I loved her very much in her lifetime and still do!... But, my first name reminds me of an old lady! I can hear a person saying, "Meet my grandmother, ***l*, oh yeh, don't step on what ever medical divice she's hooked too either..... I earned a knickname at school, and it is sticking with my Aunt and a couple of others.... but my mom hates it! She refuses to call me K****s; but it just suits me better! I got it from a teacher--- one of my favorites, and it's also on a baby name website, so it's not wierd at all! Oh yeh, my first name was so common during the early bits of my childhood that years down the line, people are going to know my age, just by my first name! Everyone was calling their daughters ***l*, and it is just too common for me! It's a pretty name, but it's just not me! My knickname (which I prefer to be called) is really pretty and I love it!; but I don't want to hurt my parents by telling them how I truely feel about my first name. One user knows me on here, so please don't (if you are them) print the names; just incase there's someone on here called ***l*. Please help! Thanks! All advice is welcome.
