Should I Name a vs. Child After My Dad or vs. His Family

I am very close to my mom and her side of the family. Also my mom and her relatives have a lot of good, classy names. I’ve thought about naming kids after some of them, specifically after my mom angrandparents, but I am afraid my dad will be offended that I didn’t name one after him or any of his relatives. My dad and his relatives aren’t the greatest people in the world and for the most part, their names are all ugly. WDYT?

The Top Baby Name is...

Name your children after people who are important parts of your life. If your dad’s side isn’t all that involved, then let them be offended.

I agree with the first poster.

I wanted to name my son after my paternal grandfather, but my uncle had the same name and I don’t like said uncle and didn’t want him to think I’d named my son after him so in the end I didn’t use the name. But you know what? I really love the name and if I have another son I’ll likely use it anyway. Use the name you like best. Don’t worry about offending anyone.
