your other family member's opinions when naming your children?


I don't.... I see it as being my child (well, and DH's too) and we can name our children what we want. Our parents had the chance to name us what they wanted, now its our turn!! If DH and I like it, thats all that matters!

Nope. Its up to my dh and I. I may listen to family, but we ultimatly make the decision.

Not really. In fact I haven't told anyone my choices for this baby. Only once I have decided against a name have I shared it :) If a name is still in the running I don't want to hear anything negative about it.

Definitely not . We see her as ours and only ours .

It wouldn't have mattered what anyone thought of the names we chose .. because she is our child and we were going to name her whatever WE wanted .

Maybe a little I ask my sis and mom what they think of the names that we are considering but in the end it is our descision.

My mil was constantly trying to influence my descision ugh she drives me nuts she would actually say I think if you have a boy you should name him John Monroe or she really wanted us to use her maiden name Roby she is such a pain. I told her point blank that she had her chance now it is mine :angry2:

In the beginning I did ask for opinions...but when I finally chose a name I didn't tell any family or friends because I didn't want anything negative to be said about it.

Kind of, it depends how much they bug me about a certain name.

My boyfriend's mother wanted us to name her Blessing Jacklynn.. Jacklynn is my middle name.

But, there was no way I was going for that. I asked my sister, but mainly more for her opinion, but it wouldn't affect our decision at all.

I think family influences my opinion a little, especially my mom, me and her are super close and I really look up to her for her aprovel of everything I do lol.. I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ask her opinion and her advice, I dont think id really care what anyone else thought other than my mom..
