S/O ugly kids, ugly names?

Has anyone ever told you they hated your kids name(s)? Either IRL or online... Did it bother you?

Yes, IRL a few people have called my baby girl's name too redneck. It is pretty southern, and I'm ok with that. She's named after her great grandmother that passed away when I was pregnant. It's mostly the nickname, so when she's grown she can use a more adult name and be just fine. :)

ETA: Her name is Cassidy Mae, I call her Cassie Mae now. She's still a baby and I think Cassidy has plenty of room to grow in to.

 Nope. I stuck with very traditional, and properly spelled names.

 Yeah.

People either LOVE my children's names.. or hate them.  I don't typically find the in between.. 

And to those who hate the names.. pretty simple, don't use them! ;) I don't let it bother me.

No one has told me personally. But im sure someone does. Most people tell me that my DD has a real pretty name.

My boys' names are pretty common ,Christopher and Robert (Bobby),so I've never heard comments one way or the other on their names. My daughter's name is Mallory. I've heard nice comments about her name,but never anything negative.
