No one has suggested names to us but they sure are quick to tell us when they dislike one that we pick out.

Ours are Aubrey and Liam as of now

I have friends who have suggested names, but no family has. I wish they would, we are totally stuck for boys names.

I've actually run names by friends/family that I love and they told me they hated (we like old school antique names for girls) and so I've decided I'm not telling anyone else my names, lol. Hubby and I are the only ones who have to be happy with the names so everyone can keep their opinions to themselves. I like Ava and Lucas!

Nobody has suggested any besides my mom continuously reminding us that her middle name is Marie and that DS has my dad's middle name. I politely told her that my sister or brother may want to use it for theirs. The benefit of being the oldest is I can push it off on them

We resorted to getting suggestions for the middle names. We already had the first names picked out, but were unable to decide on middle names. We are using Alana Marie or Blake Austin.

Autumn is on our short list too... But I'm really worried that it's a bit out there especially because my SO's surname is DALY (pronounced daily).
Autumn Daly? Ha ha ha.

I'll take any and all suggestions but it doesn't mean I'm going to go with any of them. My friend sent me a message on fb about a name of a girl she had in bible school. Her name was Brynlee, she thought it was cute. Which i like but hubbby is being silly!

I run names by our good friends but I stopped when I found names we really liked. Right now our names are Nickolas Anthony (SO's middle name is Anthony) and our girl name is Cara Danae ( Danae is my sisters middle name)

No one really suggest names to me but I also don't really ask what they think of my names. I just tell them, this is the name because I figure if I'm firm about it the less likely they are to say they don't like it. My family may all hate my names picked out, but no one has said anything about it lol.

I think it is pretty normal for people to suggest names, but crazy for them to get upset if you don't like them. I love the name Autumn.

The only person suggesting names are my sisters and they keep pushing even though I have told them they are not the types of names we are looking for my youngest sister wants Maya and my middle sister wants adell :/

Everyone just insults the names we chose :/

I love the name autumn I wanted it for my dd but my so hated it :/
