Quoting DifferentDay:" hubby and I got a lot of crap for wanting to name a boy "ryder storm" like the Doors song we never ... [snip!] ... herself as "kessiahrose angela p.i.p" ... she can't spell the last name but she tries. she can say it just not spell it lol"
People always have crappy opinions, especially family, it seems. Thats why the only people I talk to about names to is my sister, my SO and occasionally my dad. I have very similar taste to my sister, so she's good to bounce ideas off of and my dad doesn't care too much about names, but I like having input on family names from him.
My mom, on the other hand - No. I will tell her ones we are considering, but seeing as I listened to her be a bitch last time and changed my sons name and now I hate it.....no, I won;t be listening to her again.
That being said, it's not like there is a whole lot to bitch about, honestly. They are names that are spelled correctly on the right gender - you can;t really find a whole lot of fault, so yeah - I wouldn't be happy if someone told me they were going to call my child by their middle just because they don't like the first name.
