Im naming my baby boy Bentley Rhyan! Many people that are even close friends of mine are so against it! even telling me things mean like "i will disown ur kid if u name him that" or "he will be made fun of his whole life for that name"
I dont know what to do. I feel like it is my child and i should be able to name him what i want, what do you guys think?

  • I like Bentley :) Though I wouldn't name my kid that because I am into VERY masculine names for boys because one day they will be MEN.

  • That is exactly why I kept my kid's names a secret until they were born. Seems when you are pregnant people have no problem telling you how much they hate the name you pick, but once the baby is here and named, no one says a word. Name him what you want and keep it to yourself...and maybe get new friends?? lol.

  • I don't understand why people think they can make comments like that about other people's kids, especially those of people they are close with.

  • your child your decision. Once he is born the name will start to grow on people.
    I dont particularly care for Bentley but it isnt terrible and Bentley Rhyan has a nice flow.

  • Yes, he is your child. But also realize that this name is his and will be with him forever.

    Personally, I would spell Rhyan the regular way - Ryan. It looks a lot like you are trying too hard to spell a more common name differently. Both DD and I have names that have to be spelled to everyone, and trust me, it gets old quickly.

  • I like it. I don't know why others are being so negative! It is so rude.
