  • I hate when people do that, I ask for opionons on names but when i said w/ my son he was going to have his dads name people (mostly my mom) would still try and change it and tell me names they liked. My mom still won't call him by his first name.

  • I wish I would have read it sooner, but I have the Confident Care for the first year book by Jo Frost (super nanny) and she suggests not telling anyone what you've decided until you have it on a birth certificate. I totally understand how you feel, we picked a controversial name and EVERYONE has an opinion - which is usually a negative opinion and keeps trying to suggest other names. I actually got into a really big argument with my brother over it once.

  • My mom used to do that. She would give me name after name and would tell me it sounded better than the name we've picked (Jossalyn). But eventually she got over it when she realized that we WERE NOT going to change her name. So now she's comfortable with it and calls out her name, expecting her to kick in response to her name or something. It's like omg mom...she doesn't know her name yet haha!

  • Do NOT listen to them! It's not their baby. My mom tried that with me all the time. I finally told her that it was none of her business what I named my baby and to shove it up her ass if she didn't like it (yeah I said it)

  • i Totally agree w MarlyeGirl..i would litterally tell all of them that this is what you're naming YOUR baby that's coming out of YOUR snatch and if the don't like it, SHOVE IT UP THEIR ASS!

  • My MIL is trying to do that now and EVERYONE know we already have names picked out! DHs family is really controlling that is why they dont have our phone numbers except his mom. We are the parents and we decide these things if I want their opinion they will know.

  • brooke is a really nice name, and they can suck it!! i would not even worry about it. have your bf stick up for you around the family, whether it's your family or his.

  • I can totally relate, only everyone is trying to get us to change the spelling of the name we chose. We're naming her Ryleigh, but everyone says, "Why not spell it Riley? It's easier"..... and I just want to yell at them! We're her parents, we get to decide how it's spelled!
