Did you choose a certain name for your child because you knew it'd piss off someone in your family?

  • No, that seems like it would be really childish. I picked my daughters' names because I like them, not because I was trying to make someone angry.

  • No - why would someone do that?

  • No. I'm sure plenty of people pick names that family members don't like but not BECAUSE they don't like them.

  • Well, my mother-in-law hates my daughter's name, but we had chosen that name well before we learned her opinion of it. I'm not going to choose another name just because she doesn't like it.

  • Why would anyone do that? Your child will grow up with a name that came from spite? That seems ridiculously childish to me.

  • Lol. No. Why cut off your nose to spite your face?

  • No, we picked the names because we loved them. We actually didn't have anyone in mind when picking them except the 2 late Grandfathers that we named them after.. If anything it was just the opposite, our families loved the names.

  • Yeah I do because my family doesn't get me. I call my DD a punk as a joke(we say t back and forth it's funny) really because she is a major punk like into punk rock and she's not even 3. Her favorite band she asks for like everyday is Rancid so it makes sense to us but my grandma in particular HATES it!
