I am not the world's most tactful person and I have very strong opinions on names, but if I can force a smile and say "so cute!" when someone tells me their poor kid is called Braelyn or Seven or McKinzie then people can d@mn well do the same when they meet a child fortunate enough to have the lovely name of Juniper.Simon, Eloise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Marina, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Ruby Louise, Archer, Violet, Gabriel, Persephone, Dov, Louisa

Some people are just turds. If they'd liked the name Juniper, they would have found something else to sneer at. I wouldn't worry about it; rest assured that you would think their kids' names were pretty awful, too.

Im in England and ive never heard that name over here but i think its great. Im afraid with most things parent related you will be judged - names, how and what you feed them, if you do/dont work, what baby classes you go to, how much sleep they get, how strict you are.......the list goes on. They were clearly 2 perfect mums who do everything right and have all the answers and who have named their children from the top 10 list!!!!!Already blessed with a daughter Ella Paige and now planning number 2!!
Current favourites include:
Girls - Lois, Ava, Genevieve, Sophie, Ines & Alice
Boys - Luca, Arlo, Evan, Leo, Tomas & Henry
Combos - Lois Genevieve & Evan Henry

E11aboo, you're right, people are much more open about judging on anything parent related. I mean, these women who i encountered today would probably be mean and sneery on a variety of subjects, but i'm sure that a lot of people who are openly horrid about names wouldn't dream of walking up to me in the supermarket and randomly insulting my shoes or the contents of my trolley :-)~ Mama to Juniper and Arlo and our pooch Crazy Chester ~
