Still early in our pregnancy & very few people know we are pregnant BUT when we've been asked about potential baby names & shared them - we have had some shocking reactions!
Which leads me to the conclusion that we should probably just keep our baby names to ourselves (but share them on bub hub!) to avoid all of the 'I don't like that', 'oh no, the first name & surname cant start with an e sound', 'too short, too long', 'I knew an awful boy/girl with that name' responses. Once bubs arrives, everyone will be too polite to comment negatively, right?
Thoughts? How did you deal with the naysayers? Did it change your mind?
I'm thinking of choosing a god awful boy & girl name and just telling people that's what it is until bubs arrives and we release the actual name.
In public, when someone tells me their potential baby names, I might give an opinion if they are tossing a few up, otherwise I just say, 'that's lovely', because at the end of the day - its the parents that have to be happy with it! (My responses are different on bub hub obviously because people are actually seeking opinions).
