Quoting Vivian [♥]:" I think the reason I'm taking it so personally is because of allllllllllll the fights DH and I have gone ... [snip!] ... And will NIT budge on them. Ezekiel was a huuuuuuuuuuge compromise for me because it was 10x better than the names on his list."
I really feel your pain, I'm sorry. My SO has pretty horrible taste in girls names - like, super cheesy theme names that match his other daughters names (which I didn't name, their my step-daughters). There are maybe 2 names on his list that I would consider using and those....aren't even favorites of mine. Ezekiel James is honestly a really nice name, though - I just don't get what people could possibly say against it! It's that nice balance between classic and unusual and underused, it's got strong biblical roots and a long history to it - but totally not unheard of and really off the wall! People are weird and I would stick to your guns, like I said - just tell them it's not up for discussion anymore and if they persist, tell them that it's truly insulting and if they respected you then they would understand and leave it alone. I hope things get better though.
