Bad aunt?

Am I a bad aunt for HATING my nieces' names? They're not my sibling's kids, but my SIL's girls...she's trying SO hard to make her kids unique snowflakes that her girls' names just sound ridiculous!

Her older daughter is Anali. Looking at it, you would never know how to pronounce that. It's pronounced "Anna Lee". Seriously. Her younger daughter is Aniz. It's pronounced "Ah Niece". WTF?

It makes me roll my eyes every time I see their names spelled out. Why do parents do this to their children?

Anali isn't bad. I would assume 'ahna lee' or 'anna lee'.

 when i say Anali i my head i said anna lee so yes some people woud get it.  Aniz i didn't get though. Peopl want there kids to be unique bu its silly to do crzy spellings. it doesn't make you a bad aunt to not like there names. my nephews name is christopher and I hate it. lol.

I'm home recuperating from surgery and spending time watching Lost on Netflix.  The Clare on that show is not a fat girl (well, she was a little big at first but that was the baby in her belly).  The Clares I've met have all been tall, skinny blondes.
