My first daughter is named Haven Rebekah so when we found out we were having a girl, I wanted an uncommon name coupled with a traditional name that matches my 1st daughter but not in a trendy way (if that makes sense). Anyway, I stumbled across a FN name that I fell in love with. My husband and I decided to go with two traditional family names hyphenated (his grandmother & my grandfather "Jay") for a middle name and have thus decided on her entire name:
We are happy with this but certain family members constantly ask if the name is going to change after we have numerously said no and the MIL even pulls up baby names on the internet when we are over there. Now, my husband has recently asked me if that is still what I want to name her because when he tells people her name, he is not getting the "OMG that's a beautiful name" reaction (and probably b/c of his mom bugging his ear). I told him it doesn't matter. It's our child and our choice. I got the same kick back with my first daughter as her name was very uncommon 12 years ago. I am just so annoyed right now. Any thoughts? Would it be okay to tell any family members that "don't like" the name to shove it? And how has anyone else handled dealing with people that aren't particularly fond of what you are naming your child?
