My hubby and I really love the name Xavier- sorry purists, we would pronounce it as "Ex-zave-yer."

We were 100% set on it, but each of our parents dislike the name. We don't want to pick a name everyone hates, and have our potential son (Don't even know the sex yet) hate his own name.

What do you all think, honestly?

It's just okay to me. Don't love it as it's not my style, but also don't hate it. Since you're second guessing it I think it's important to look around and make sure you love it. Because really that's the most important thing -- is that you two find the name that you love! No matter what you pick someone isn't going to like it whether they tell you or not.

I love it. but it just isn't our style. Keep in mind that your parents and In laws already got to choose their baby's names and now it is your turn. if you and baby's dad love it go for it.

If you really like it, then stick with it. I wouldn't worry about if your parents or in-laws like the name (or anyone else for that matter!). They will love your child, no matter what you name him!

I know there are a lot of people that do not reveal the name they have chosen until the baby is born, that way it is much easier for other people to keep their opinions to themselves. It is much easier for other people to "poo-poo" a name when you are pregnant, but not as easy when the baby is already born, and the child already has the name. Not very polite to "poo-poo" a baby!

Personally, I LOVE the name

and i think that even if people dislike a name to begin with, once the baby is born, they can't help but like it

Good points! I may just keep it to myself! I do think we're going with it though... I'm trying on other names and they just aren't speaking to me as much!
