  • Ask her if she named her kids. When she says yes, tell her "good, know it's my turn."

  • Yep, your child and you get to name him whatever you want. She loves them both no matter how she dislikes their names.

  • My opinion is to tell her too f----------g bad. They're your kids. She got to name hers.

  • Thank you!!! I am not a confrontational person but I think this has crossed the line! I just was shocked cause they are not that outside of the box to me. We live in a small town and all the little boys have names like Luke, Case, Blake, Kayden, Ty, etc. LOL We name our boys to ride bulls. LOL (Not really ) but they are country boys that play in dirt. LOL No offense to anyone but a name like Christopher or something more formal wouldn't fit our family.

  • Those are great names and it's none of her business. If she brings it up again, I would say 'Thank you for feeling comfortable enough to share your opinion, but you had your chance to name your kids and this is mine!'

  • Doesnt matter if she likes them.

    Answer by gemgem at 7:06 PM on May. 29, 2011

  • Tell her you guys love the names and it's not your problem if she doesn't like them and then add how sad, selfish and low class it was of her to share her nasty and unsolicited opinion. what a bitch...
