  • I think you need to just tell him straight up, & I like Ciara but not Justice:)

  • Maybe you could compromise and name her Ciara Lynn. Just because his friend didnt like you doesnt mean she wasnt important to your babies dad and Lynn is a very nice middle name whether it was her name or not. HTH

  • i would tell him way you dont like it i love the name that you picked out ...... i personaly would not name her after the girl that past away my hubby has a friend that hates me b/c she has a huge crush on him and now im there so she knows theres no way she will be with him and if he ever aske me to name our kid after her (dead or alive ) i would laugh in his face he needs to realize that if you named your child after her all its going to do is remind you of someone that hated you so this is so confuseing im not very good at wording thing lol good luck

  • im not sure if yall are even together or not but simple fact of the matter is, YOU dont like it, your carrying this baby for 9mnths & YOU have to give birth to this baby. If my SO told me he wanted to name our daughter after 1 of his friends wether or not she like me or not, dead or alive it simply just wouldnt happen. I mean lets think about this..... if yall have a daughter & later in life she says...... Mom how did i get my name..... does he want you to say OH your dad named you after his friend who HATED me!! yeah NO BEUNO!! all in all it's just not a good idea! good luck!
