rude comments to baby name

Kayla - posted on 02/03/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I'm on my 3rd child and we have went through hundreds of names. We have finally settled on a name but people are being so rude about it. Idk if my prego hormones make it worse but it's driving me nuts. I have family and friends that will radomly message me telling me to change the name cause they don't like it and that I will ruin the kids life...then tell me names that they want. I even had 1 person tell me that I'm setting my child up to be an asswhole. These comments really hurt and actually have me rethinking a name that me and the father like. How do I handle all this or do I just change the name?

This is your baby and so whatever name you decide will be perfect!

As for the negative feedback from others, you cannot control what they have to say, but I've found that taking control of the conversation helps when you throw in your own positive comments. For example, if someone tells you that you should name your baby John instead of Dave - your response can be "I really like the name Dave... but John is also a great name... I'll definitely have to keep that in mind..." That way you are not turning down their suggestions by letting them know that you like their idea but at the same time you are basically telling them that the choice is yours.

Hope this helps!
