Does a baby's name really matter to you?

I don't mean your own baby, I mean someone else's baby. I'm aware there are plenty of names out there that might make some people, if not most scratch their heads but at the same time, do you think it's neccessary for others to throw in their 2 cents on what their opinion of the name is? Does it really matter what others decided to name their children? Maybe this is just another pointless question of mine lol

  • Generally I don't care what people name the kid - it's the spelling that's the issue because I know how hard it can be to have to correct even your teachers on how to say your name (Theresa vs. Teresa) and yes it was pronounced The - Resa

  • I don't care what other people name their children. I mean, it's THEIR child, not mine. It's their decision. I only give my two cents if they ask for it.

  • If someone told me there babies name and I dont like it at all I would never say so. But if I love the name I tell them.
