Last Name Troubles:Would this bother you?

My hubs keeps turning down my favorite names because of our last name. 
Would you name your boy "Emmett" Smith? (We live in Texas=he thinks of the Cowboys player)
Would you name your boy "Willem" (not William) Smith? We would call him Willem but hubs is afraid people would still default to "Will Smith" haha
Let me know how hard I should fight!
