Tell People vs. Don’t Tell People vs. Please Read and Comment

I am set on certain names, but I already know that certain people, particularly my sister, won’t like them. I hate lying and I suck at it, so I can’t just be like, "uh yeah, I haven’t thought of a name yet", but I get so irritated when people try to talk me out of a name or suggest another one. I also can’t let them know that I’m hiding names witho ut ruffling any feathers, especially if I do tell my mom about my name’s like I want to so bad. What should I do? Also, would you look at the names in the first comment and see if I’m as good as I think I am at naming kids or if you can see why people give me grief?

I think that all of your names are perfectly fine!!! If you think that people are going to give you grief about the name just tell them that you have chosen a name but you want it to be a surprise or let them know beforehand that you don’t want to hear their opinion because its the name you have chosen. I love love love love the name Henry!!! Henry Alexander would sound great also for a little boy. Brooklyn Elizabeth would sound beautiful for a little girl :D good luck! Hope I helped! -Jane

If the comments from family are worth anything, listen to them (ie. "that’s the name of your cousin’s son" or "have you considered the initials" or "don’t name your son after your ex-boyfriend" or "that won’t age well"). If it’s just "I don’t like that name" then use what you like.

Of your names, I like Adrian and Alexandria the best. But really, you haven’t got any bad names.

Your names aren’t weird or even unique, so I don’t know why they have problems with these names. This is your baby and you can name your baby whatever you want. Just tell them you have a name and are keeping it a secret until the birth. Or you can tell them the name but also tell them the name is set and I don’t need your opinion on the name. Don’t change your mind just because someone doesn’t like it.
I love the girl name Daisy. It’s so beautiful. And I love the boy names Christian, Samuel, and Weston.

These are all nice names, I also do not care for Brooklyn or Addison,(or Gia) but love Brooke. Adrian for a boy is prone to teasing, but the rest are very nice. Your baby, your name, your choice and it will grow on them when they meet the child. Until then, I’d keep it to myself, unless you really want their opinions.

Oh, all of these names are SO great! I don’t know why you would get grief over any of them. The boys’ names are all handsome, and the girls’ names are all gorgeous. I really like Heath David, Henry Alexander, Joseph "Joe" Bennett, and Adrian "Ade" Jack for a boy, and Daisy Rebekah, Alexandria "Alexia" Brooklyn, Sara Elizabeth, and Gia Addison for a girl. Really, though, whatever you pick will be a winner, nevermind what your family says. These are all absolutely AMAZING names! :-)

~God bless!

I thought your names were going to be crazy when I read your instructions. These are all perfectly fine names. My brother doesn’t like any of the names I’ve been thinking about. It would be great if he did, but it also isn’t his child. I told him he’ll get used to whatever I pick. We laughed and that was the end of it. Hopefully your family wouldn’t be too overbearing about it. If you think they will, then just tell the you want to keep it as something special just for yourself until the baby gets here. Especially if you’re sharing everything else with them. Make it seem like you want to surprise them.
