These names are not weird

My mom and I have a very strained background. Long crappy story. We went to see her today and she said something about the weird names I pick for my kids. DS5 is Alexander but goes by Lex. DS2 is Lincoln. Thats not really all that weird! WTF! Considering she named me Charity,  she doesn't have much room to talk.

My first son's middle name is Alexander. I don't see an issue with either of them.

Maybe she's thinking of Lex Luther, the villian from Superman.  And Lincoln's a famous last name.

Not bad names, but not classic (the nickname) or biblical like yours.

Lincoln is odd and Lex as a nick name is pretty odd too.  Although I don't think they are horrible or terrible in anyway simply not common.

I don't think they're odd at all, or your name. Lincoln and Charity aren't very common, but I don't find them odd.

I like Charity, but your kids names are nice, too.

I understand being peeved though because my mom and I have a strained background. We do get along, but some things are avoided to do so. It works for me and we both are better that way.
