I got heaps of bad comments about a name we had picked out for my DD. It was ment to be Saiyuri which is a Japanese name for little lilly (huge fan of japanese culture and the name lilly) well what ended up changing my mind was when my mum turned around and said "I may as well call her urine cause thats what I think of it!" :-/ I was mortified. So ended up with a different name instead. And with my little man who will be earth side on this coming Thursday we had Auron (computer game characters name... DF is a gamer lol) picked out but have copped alot of negativity towards it with people not being able to pronounce it properly and friends cracking up cause its a game related name so have changed our minds and have kept the new name a secret. I figure they cannot complain if they dont know until its too late ;-P

When we were picking DS's name we had rocco at the top of the list. Everyone who heard it made a negative comment so we ended up going with something different. 6 months on and I still like rocco better. Go with what you like.

When I tell people DD's name, people have this look and go ohh that's lovely..............
I've also had, isn't that a men's name? Uh no, just because there is a well known man with the name doesn't mean it's a men's name!!! (Think TV chef from the UK).

It always surprised me when people have the guts to criticise a parent's choice of name for their kids. I mean wtf? How is it your place to comment? But anyway... I've found there is always some jerk out there who will have a problem with any name, and this thread proves it (I mean really, how can someone criticize Elizabeth as a name!?). I had a couple of stupid looks/comments on my daughter's name which is actually quite a common one. Honestly though, eff the haters.

I had someone make a comment that clearly the drugs I'd had during labour (had none for the record!), had obviously affected me, otherwise why would I choose what I did for DS2?! Soooooo offended! It was a close friend too :/

I got a few "that's a dog's name" from a bubhub thread ages ago, and a few "you should give him the longer version, it's too cutesy by itself" but generally had positive feedback. Haven't told anyone except family what his name will be though.
The name is Toby by the way.

We didn't tell anyone dd's name until she was born and they all live in the UK our US. We aren't seeing them until November so there is plenty of time for them to get used to it. Best part, they will have talked about it to each other and will be bored of the discussion by then.

One of the first things MIL said is its a bit of a mouthful why did you name her that the poor little thing. She still has trouble saying it I have no idea why everyone calls her Mahli anyway besides her. It actually gave me satisfaction as one of my criteria while choosing a name is will MIL hate it? This was said after she told me to get over it (being daughter was in special care and I was just told I prob won't see her today as I had a c-section and they woudldn't take me there to see her).
