Whether you and the father are together or not the baby is still his so naming it after its father is NOT a bad thing.

Poster 2, let her work this out with her mom.

Naming your baby Giovanni Cruz Jr. is a horrible idea. Teen moms who become pregnant rarely end up with their baby’s father and a lot of the time, the baby’s father isn’t around and abondons them. You might say you two will be together forever, but that’s probably not going to happen. And when you two break up, you’re going to regret naming him Giovanni Cruz Jr. DON’T DO IT!!! And I think a baby should have their own name.

Well it looks like someone kept voting for the same thing, the turn out will probably be different because of that.

Anyway, it depends if you actually love the name for your child.

I have to agree with your mom.

I think you should listen to your mom. Hopefully the two of you will be together, but you never know for sure, and I think everyone deserves their own name. Why not give him Giovanni/Cruz as a mn and give him his own fn?

Poster 4... it isnt her mothers child it is hers.. she asked for opinions and I stated mine... If she is old enough to have her child she is old enough to name it.

You never know if you’re are going to end up with him or if he will leave and not take part in the baby’s life. Give your baby a name your not going to regret in the future.

Poster 11, your logic is flawed.

Name YOUR baby what you wish. It is your and your bf’s choice. (Even married couples dont always stay together, but noone tells them what to name their children.)

I think that you should follow your heart. But, realize that you are young and he is young. I feel that young fathers have a rough time with commitment.

I am 19 and pregnant. My boyfriend loves me and is still with me. He doesn’t think that I should be keeping our baby, but he’s standing by my decision. The baby is getting my last. Things probably won’t work out with my boyfriend and I will end up raising our child alone. I want our baby to have MY name.

Listen to your heart, but please try to be logical to. Your mother is concerned about you, hear her out and listen to her advice. But make the decision that is best for you AND your baby.

Best of luck!

I am a teen mom. I gave my baby the name I wanted and my last name, just in case my boyfriend were to leave me because that happens a lot with teen moms. And sure enough, he left. Now I’m raising my baby alone and I’m so glad I gave my baby the name I wanted and my last name. I would have hated to have given my baby the name he wanted to give and his last name.

I think your should follow your heart...whether your together or not the baby is his too and you both should have a voice in the matter. your mother wants what is best for you and your child but it’s not her choice it’s yours. Make the one that is going to make you happy...

I’d listen to your mom.

Can’t you give the baby an original name?

I say you should listen to your mom because she can be right. . . I was a teen mom and named my daughter Justine because of her dad Justin and now that I’m 28 and she’s 14 she asked me where can we change her name because she has never met her dad and she totally hates him . .. knowing your child doesn’t like their name is heart breaking :( . . . .it up to you
