I am due Dec. 30th and am having a boy. I still have not decided what name to pick. It was going to be Riley for about 4 months but decided to change my mind. It is important for me that the father and I both agree on a name and it's not just all me. My family hated the name Riley, said it was a girly name. I decided to change it to different names maybe like Brady, or Cameron, but my family is into more traditional names like Christopher, Joshua, Andrew... etc.. which I like as well, but would not be happy with. They think if I choose a name that is a little different he will get made fun of... but they do not understand that in this generation having a different kind of a name is okay, and not out of the norm... people keep telling me to do what makes me happy but its a loose loose situation because if I pick a name that I like, my family will be annoyed and be on my case which will make me unhappy, or name my son a name that I do not feel good about, to make my family happy... so what to do?
