For real. I announced Ashlyn's name on Facebook along with her ultrasound picture and my brother in law tells me that we should "rethink the name." I asked him why and he says, "It just doesn't sound like a name a human would have..." WTF is that supposed to mean? He's a complete moron but I was just amazed he's say that so publicly on Facebook. As if his name is any better.
People are stupid and think because they have an opinion on something means that they HAVE to express it or else they'll implode or something.
Hey, Ashlyn is beautiful. I had Ashlyn picked out for a girl since before I got pregnant. So, I might be prejudice buttttttttt....I think it is a lovely name.
My family were never too keen on Eamon's name, but once he arrived, he just *looked* like an Eamon and still does They never said anything else negative about the name and nobody can see him as anything else!
(FTR: I didn't like it either at first. OH named him in pregnancy and it took a while to grow on me.)
i've had this too! we're keeping our names to ourselves now so they cant influence us we've scored off a few names on our list, 1 of which we really liked, because of comments. and another thing that annoys me is when we were thinking we'd find out the gender (now decided to keep it a surprise) and family members saying under no circumstance do they want to know before the birth! tough sh*t! it's our decision again
"aww do you have any names?"
"oh i'm not sure on Olivia"
WELL THEN ITS A GOOD JOB ITS MY BABY NOT YOURS AND I'M NAMING HER NOT YOU!
why do people think you want their opinion!?
It's like being introduced to someone called kevin and being like "oh i can't stand the name kevin"
If I don't like a certain name i'll just be like 'aww lovely' and change the conversation as I'm not a complete and utter moron!
My sons name is Aiden, I love his name, but my brother couldn't stand it when I was preggers he kept trying to get me to change it!
It doesnt matter what other ppl think as long as you like it enough to give the name to your child lol (I don't like my brothers name but I don't ever tell him that HAHA)
I know i wouldn't mind if i asked their opinion, but to just state they dislike it is so rude!
These ppl are just oblivious to ppls feelings ,I don't understand how they can truly be so freak'n dumb
Omg i totally agree with this..We haven't decided on anything but people are so damn rude and opinionated when they really just need to shut up and be supportive! I told my friend one of our ideas for a name and she said "I think you can do better than that.."
Geeeez... I wasn't asking for permission.. B!tch
