Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Family making us feel bad for our name choices.

In hind sight I shouldn't have even told anyone the names we were thinking of.

A family member asked on Facebook what names we were considering. She commented asking on a status I posted stating that boys were hard for me to name.

I replied to the comment with a list of names we like and we got comments from her, my uncle, cousins, my mom etc on Facebook and over the phone stating their disapproval and suggesting a bunch of other more traditional names.

Did anyone give you grief about your name choices how did you handle it?

Older family keeps throwing out

Daniel, Joshua, Michael, Matthew, Andrew

Some of the younger family members are saying

Aiden, Noah, Eli Ethan etc

I'm not saying those names are bad just not our style



Edit: Archer
Alistair
Brooks
Bridger
Drake
Elias
Ezra
Jonas
Keenan
Maxim
Roark

Those are some we are considering

My family didn't say anything but I knew they thought it was odd. I don't care and they are used to the names now.

Name YOUR Children what you want to name them and ignore their suggestions if you don't like them. Tell them if they want to use that particular name then they can get pregnant again and use it for their child, lol

People will always have to put there two cents in. My mother never liked the names we picked. I didn't care. I just told her that this is the name we like and that is all that matters. Guess what she loves the names as soon as they were born. She has actually told me she is glad I never listened to her to have common names.
