ask you for opinions on names because they know you're a name-o-holic? I have a few people who ask, especially one of my friends constantly asks me if I like her sons name. And deep down, I don't like it. And I wish she would've asked me before he was born!
TOOOTALLY! A friend of ours and his fiancee are expecting and he keeps texting me about names. I give a vague answer if I don't like it (mostly "it's not something I'd use, but I like that it's not common") because I don't want to feel like an @ss if they chose the name!
Most of my friends do not know I'm a name-a-holic. It's not something I hide but it doesn't come up unless we start talking baby names. My sister and SILs know, but that's about all. So, no, I don't get asked questions a lot about names.
Plus, I really hate to put down a name when I know my friend is really liking it. I have a friend who just had a baby 3 weeks ago. She got a lot of flack over his name before he was born, so I was in no way going to add to it. But, I really, really dislike the name.
Most of the people I know don't know about my name obsession either. I have 1 friend who is equally obsessed with names as me & we discuss names but that's about it.
I do have friends tell me there name ideas randomly sometimes though and I always say I like them no matter what, even if I dont because usually I don't like them for a reason that wouldn't matter to them, such as I know 20 people named that name or my cousin named her kid that, ya know? So to them it doesn't matter.
