Your child's name

I picked a name for my son that I suppose is easy to make fun of, but I think in a cute way.

His name is Elliot.

After he was born my neighbor mimicked "E.T." and asked if he could buy my son an E.T. doll and Reece's Pieces for Christmas...

Has anyone mimicked your child's name, but in a way that you didn't feel hurt/embarassed over?

  • My daughter's name is Natalie, and my FIL has always called her Nat-Toes. The entire family calls her that now actually...

  • my son's name is Oliver and when we visit DH's old neighbor he always comes to the door and says "Hey! It's Oliver and Company!" lol It's even funnier because DH never saw that movie. He named him after the main character on the old show "Green Acres". XD

  • Yes. My daughter has two first names separated by a hyphen. There were/are so many people that ask why I would name her like I did. Her name is two very traditional names. It's not like I gave her a stripper name, or some made up, crazy name. I've always told them if they don't like it, have their own kid and name it what they want and leave my baby's name alone. It's my choice, not yours.

  • Myson is named Damien and my friend from middle school called him "Damien Omen TWO" for the longest time, until I told her I loved her son too much to call him Wussley instead of Wesley
