    Excellent news! Stick with what YOU and DP love. It is afterall, your child.

    Im sure it doesn't stop with the names. Ppl have always and will always have an opinion on how you should birth, drugs/natural, cloth/disposable, demand/schedule feeding.. the list goes on. You would likely drive yourself nuts in the process.. and it's just not possible to keep everyone happy. So do what works for you and your family... that's my opinion. - of course.. feel free to ignore that too!

    Not many people like our boy name. I don't really care because we love it. I know my mum is going to hate it so I haven't told her yet
    What I don't get it is why people think its appropriate to mouth off if they don't like it. It's not about them and I didn't ask their opinion, i just told them what we had chosen.
    When friends of mine tell me their name list and I don't like it, I wouldn't be so rude as to say its awful. Jut because its not my taste doesn't make it bad.

    My Mum hates both my children's names, I don't care - I dislike all the names she gave to her children too

    Not at all! She doesn't see that at all unfortunately even when I get worked up and walk out she keeps doing it! So frustrating! But it's due date today so once she is here her name is going to stick! Hehe

    I was rather lucky with the two names of my kids - no-one said anything bad about "Connor" - although several people called him Cooper for a while. I had some negative comments about the spelling of Jorja's name - but I just pointed out that I spelt her name phonetically, and how do you teach a child to spell when if you sound out her name it say Gee-Ore-Guy-Ah. I guess I was lucky because Connor was the nineteenth grandchild of my parents. And I couldn't be worse than some of the names my siblings have chosen! My mother is the Queen of bad comments: When one sister said she was naming her unplanned daughter "Jedda", my mother asked if she was expecting the baby to be black? My brother couldn't name his daughter "Holly" because if she couldn't pronounce her Hs she would be "Olly". My mother also refuses to call my nephew by his given name because it is the same name as his father. She also told my sister she couldn't name her daughter "Samantha" because it is a boys name. "Timothy" was a dog's name. "Beau" was just silly. "Coen" is spelt wrong. "Aurora" is awful. "Delilah" is a prostitute's name. And "Ryder" isn't a name at all, its a noun. And guess what? We all just roll our eyes at her and do whatever WE want!!!
