I have two names picked out for a boy and girl, what do you think?

For a girl I picked Sophia.
For a boy I picked out Jude.
My husband loves them but my family hates them. :/

  • It's not your family's baby - it's yours. They sound fine to me, as long as you don't mind a few "Hey! Jude!" comments for your son. :)

    If you and DH like the names stick with them. If you name them something else to please your family you'll just feel resentful and regret not naming your child what you like.

  • Well I love both! :)

    We named our middle child Sadiana Adelle, call her Sadie. My grandma of all people told me that she literally hated the name "Sadiana." It hurt my feelings but you know, it's my kid. lol

  • I like them both, LOVE Sophia. Your family doesnt have to like the name, you and your husband do, and they will get used to it in time!

  • I like the names!
    My family didn't like my sons name either, but it's not their son, so tough!

  • I love Jude it's at the top of our list :) Your family will learn to love the names once the little one arrives.

  • I think they're cute! It shouldn't matter what your family thinks. It's your child, only your husband's and your opinion should matter. After the baby is here, your family won't care what the name is. All they'll care about is that bundle of joy. :)

  • I love them both. Although Jude reminds of the Beatles. But I still love the name.
