    Was just wondering what you all think of my name choice (please be honest)

    Its just whenever i tell friend or family they r like "oh your not naming him that! Its only my boys name that people have problems with, everyone seems to like our girl name!

    For a boy i have chosen to name him after his daddy which is Richard Neeson. People think its so old fashioned and cant understand it but my partner is the fifth Richard and i just think it would be nice to carry it on plus i quite like the name!

    For a girl we have chosen Jessica Neeson.

    I like it too. It's my older brothers name..and a few people in my family names as well. It can be shorten so many ways too.

    I personally like more unique names..but I think it has to be what you and your partner like and not what everyone else thinks!

    Richard is a nice name, and so nice to honor your man that way. I guess some people think of the "nickname" that is so derogatory nowadays, but they just need to grow up :)

    If I have a boy Im having a Louis Andrew Richard Smithson. Richard is my dad's name Andrew is OH's dad. I like the name richard but couldnt call him that coz OH's dad would want a mention lol xx

    Go with what u like hun, my family have refused to call my son Louis if i have a boy, they will call him Jake as thats what they like (ANGRY!!!) they just wont see baby then! their problem.

    If someone has a problem with your name choice tell them to go have a baby and call their baby what they want, or just poke them in the eye and tell them not to be so rude!
