That's just cruel

A park ranger told us we are cruel because our daughter's name is Delaney. I think that was totally out of line and while it's an unusual name it's not out there, spelled strangely, or unheard of.
What do you think is the name Delaney cruel?

I don't see what the problem is. Yes, he was totally out of line.

Ummm this park ranger is a nut. Was this person older? Usually old school people like traditional names and don't like anything out of the ordinary.

Some people have no social skills and don't understand that they must think before they speak. Our last name is long and a little difficult to pronounce so once a nurse told us she felt sorry for our DD because it will take years before she can learn how to spell it. The name is very special to my DH because it belongs to his deceased father who came from another country. People are just so rude sometimes.

I don't have a problem with it and I'm one who can't stand it when people name their kids cruely.
