I hate the name my baby's adoptive parents are giving her.

It's seriously making me reconsider if they are the ones. They won't even take in to consideration the name I chose or any of the ones I like. Our name tastes are very different.

The name they have chosen is Poppy June. What kind of name is that? It sounds like a willy wonka character.

 I like it!  Why should they consider names you like?

Wow you are a strong person for doing this...

But I couldn't help bursting out laughing when you said willy wonka character! omg!

I reallyhave no suggestions... maybe discuss it with them, and tell them you feel so strongly that its making you reconsider..and maybe they'll reconsider too... I dunno...not my expertise

If I was giving my child away, the future parents taste in names would be the last thing that I would be considering. You surely picked them for other reasons, don't lose sight of that.

Not your baby, theirs. They can name her whatever messed up name they want.

Their child, their choice.

As the birth mother you have the right to choose whoever you want.  If they won't listen to your preference on names then they may not be the right ones to give your child to.  The name may be a "little thing" but if they won't respect the fact that the person giving them this child doesn't want it given that name then are they going to later decide they don't respect you enough to let you see the baby (assuming that's why you're going for an open adoption)?

The mom was raised in Australia and went to
School in England but we all live in America now.
