I've never had anyone close to me say anything but online almost everyone disliked the name I chose for my DD2. Her name is Kierra.

Do any of your children have a name that is hated more than loved? What is the name?

No one has said anything to me. I wouldn't care either way anyways.  We actually do not reveal our names until birth so...no hearing people make comments.  We have a Connor Ryan and Milo Anakin.  New baby will be Zoe or Norah Padme____.  If we have a boy we don't have a name yet.  We always pick a name and then one of the names is either starwars or superhero related.  Connor came from a superman comic, Ryan is my husband's middle name, Milo we both loved, Anakin from starwars.

If anyone doesn't like them they certainly haven't told me. Which is good, because I'd prolly be a passive agressive bitch about it.  :)

Not my problem if they don't like MY sons name it's MY SON not there's. They don't like it I can tell them where to shove their comments and if they like I can shove it there for them :)

My Hayden got his name from Hayden Christensen :) I had never heard the name until they announced it for him playing Anakin in episode 2. I swore if I had a baby boy I was naming him Hayden. No one really believed me since I was 15 when I said it. His middle name is Wesley which doubles for his great great grandfather's middle name and Wesley Crusher from Star Trek. Everyone kept telling me I was having mirror twins because I was so big and EVERYONE knew someone who had had mirror twins that hide behind each other until birth) if I would have his brother would have been Harrison James.
I'm a huge sci fi nerd :) I was even more stoked Hayden was born on Gordon Michael Woolvett's (Harper from sci fi show Andromeda) birthday.

I have no idea but I really could careless what others thought especially strangers online. I never heard anyone say anything about my kids name. I like the names, my husband like the names and I am pretty confident that they have names that are not going to be an embarrassment to them.

I don't see anything wrong with your daughter's name (it's pretty), and whoever said anything was just being petty or probably pronouncing it crazy to make it seem weird, lol.
