If your family likes the name you have picked out for your baby or do outside influences not bother you?

Not one gosh dang if they dont like it. Only DH and my opinion matters. I dont care if my family and friends dont like the name we chose. And MOST of my family and friends know me well enough to not even try and tell me they dont like my choice and or to have tried to tell me what to name my child.

We just don't tell people the name until after baby is born. My family is opinionated and I don't want to hear it. We don't even tell them names we are thinking about even if they aren't official

Mostly, my side of the family loves the names we've picked. My mom's response was "Oh that is just so YOU!" and my dad's was "Good Irish names, can't get much better than that!"

My husband's side of the family thinks that the names we've picked are artsy-fartsy, hoity-toity, and just plain stupid. I could care less what they think.

This is coming from the family who loves the names Kayeleighe, Rubye, and Bentleighe. Yes, Fiona and Finnegan are SOOOOO much worse than those.

My side of the family LOVES the name we picked out.

My FIL on the other hand, I just found out, is angry about the name. DH says it's just the middle name, bc he's worried the kid will get made fun of on the playground. But I don't know.

My opinion is, our kid, our name. No one else has a say, so FIL will just have to get over it.

I couldn't care less what anyone thinks, but everyone loves it. I think my mom might be a little peeved that we chose to use my dad's middle for Aidan's middle name, but who gives a hoot.

Nope, it does not matter to me if they like it or not.

We do not care at all if anyone does not like the names we chose. We have never had any issues though so far but to us its our child so as long as we are happy with the names that's all that matters.

Not at all. In fact, I care so little about our families opinions that we don't share names until baby is born. We don't even discuss names we are considering because I don't want any outside influence. Mine and DF's opinions are the only ones that matter. Our families are super opinionated and have no problem telling us they think a name is stupid before baby is born (learned that the hard way with DD).

Not really. Some of my family doesn't really like the names. It doesn't matter but I don't really want to hear it.

I couldn't possibly care less. But, everyone seems to like the name we picked out. Wouldn't lose a second of sleep if they didn't.

I don't care at all. We don't discuss names with them. We tell them what it's going to be and that's that!

My mom hates Payson. When it was our girl name with Everett she said you better not name my granddaughter that. I told her well we love it and will name her whatever we choose. We had a boy and she was hoping we would pick something else this time but I have loved Payson for a long time so I don't care she will just have to get over it.

I love my family...they know and respect the fact that at the end of day, its gonna be whatever DH & I choose. I'm not a sensitive or easily offended type of person, so I'm totally open to talking about names with my family...and I like hearing names they think off...just did this last night =) I guess I'm lucky cause we can laugh & disagree at the same time! We don't plan to share name until baby is born, but since I'm on Maui (and I was in Vegas with Vaughn, family is in SoCal) its also a nice way for my family to feel involved with this baby too.

Yeah it doesn't affect me whether they like it or not but I find it really rude when people say they don't like a choice that you've decided on. People have not problem saying things they don't like or "hate" without taking into consideration other peoples preferences.

There are so many names that I do not like - that bring up bad memories or I just think sound pretty lame for a name but I never ever would say it to anyone mentioning that they've chosen it.


So yeah long story short - doesn't bother me if they don't like it but I get annoyed when they decide to tell me it. It wouldn't change my choice just my opinion of them. LOL

We've learned not to tell until it is official.
