I am still pregnant but I have decided on the name Braxton. I have no backbone so I let people walk all over me. EVERYONE WHO I TELL WHAT I HAVE CHOSEN TO NAME HIM SAYS "OMG LIKE BRAXTON HICKS!" and make fun of it. but some girl told me today that its the ugliest "fing" name ever! What do I say to people who say stupid crap like that?!!?

  • maybe you should reconsider if he's going to get a lot of teasing by others. That can hurt his self esteem. Make that his middle name if you have to use it. Just a thought

  • That's when you look at them straight in the eyes and say " It is my child, and this is the name that I have chosen for him." If they don't like it then they should have their own child to name.
    I like the name Braxton BTW

  • Nothing! Don't stoop to their moronic levels. Yes, it would feel good to punchasize their face, but, you'd only be as idiotic as them to do that. Don't let some bitch ruin your day!

  • tell them to kiss your ass. It is your kids name and if they don't like it tough.

  • I LOVE the name Braxton and if I would have had a second son I would have named him Hudson or Braxton (I like to shorten it to Brax) cute

    My other son is Mason so Mason and Braxton sound good together.

    Dont let anyone get to ya, if you really want to, you can make fun of ANY name.

  • Anyone who is ignorant enough to make fun of the name you have chosen, or to be nasty about it, have no class and are not worth your worry.
    The next time someone pokes fun or makes a rude comment about the name you've chosen, tell them to kiss your butt and walk away. I wish I were there so I could "handle" them for you - I cannot stand ignorance and cruel minded people.

    I happen to like the name you have chosen. What middle name are you going to give Braxton?

  • Ya why don't you think about what people are saying now about the name make it the middle name. I personally like Lucas Braxton( I think that you should just think about that being his middle name.

  • People will always have an opinion good or bad about something. As long as you like it that's all that matters. I have a friend who named their kid Paxton and he doesn't get picked on.

    BTW, I love the name Braxton :)
