A few days ago, a close friend and I got into a pretty bitter argument.
He was putting down the name that I chose, if the baby was a girl. DH and I were having a hard time thinking up of a good middle name, and as I was relaying this to my friend, he was saying that I should give her a Korean middle name, because I'm Korean. While I'm not completely disowning my culture or anything, my mother has already chosen a Korean name for girl and boy possibilities, and I don't want another Korean name to be attached, if that makes any sense at all.
His reasoning, however, was that Lily was a terribly obtuse, frustrating and completely boring name that nothing goes well with. He said that I was just "waiting for other boring Caucasian names to come up that I can shoot down until I come across and "old century, Gothic name" that I can label her as." When I got offended, he said "I'm not playing this name game. You're being combative."
