My DH and I really like the name Miriam, we like it because there are not a ton of babies out there with it and it just pretty hut my mother does not like the name at all and I know that I am not trying to please her but I don't want her to hate her grandaughters name. Is anyone else in this same boat?
My Mom did not like the name Elle, now it does not matter to her LOL In fact she did not like any of the names we picked out. I really don't think it matters as once the baby is here it won't be an issue.
EDIT: BTW she does not like the name Emmett either, she says it is too old sounding and she says that I should use DH's name as the mn. I just finally told her that she had three chances to name her kids and that these were my kids and I will be picking their names (my Mom can be a bit pushy LOL)
I spent 9 months trying to pick out a name. My mother didnt like ANY of them, and she was the only real person i had around. (My sons father wasnt really around, although we maintained contact until shortly after my son was born). So my moms opinion mattered a lot.
What ended up happening was: i never decided on a name lol. 3 days after my son was born, I still had no name. She didnt like any. The ONE name I DIDNT like was the ONE name she wanted me to name my son. I finally gave him the name I had picked out and called it a day: Kobi.
She now LOVES the name, b/c it fits him well, he LOOKS like a Kobi and we cant imagine calling him anything else. I will say : for the first 3 or 4 months of my sons life, she REFUSED to call him by his name lol. Now - thats all she calls him
ANd - b/c of his last name, his full name has a very cute ring to it, and everywhere we go I get comments from other parents who just LOVE my sons name (mostly the first name/last name combination). They say their kids chant it around the house lol. Weve been in the office at his school, said his name, and other littler kids just walk around saying his name b/c of the ring to it.
So... go with what youve picked out. Your mom will get used to it. She had her chance to name all of her own children, nows your chance
I was told by a wise woman.. That don't tell anyone what you are going to name the baby until after you bring it home from the hospital.. Because anyone can complain about a name before the baby is born.. But once it is on the birth certificate no one can try and make you change your mind about the name...
