Blythe is lovely! I can't see any teasing potential there
I wouldn't share my favourite names with my family myself, but if I did I think it's always good to listen to what they have to say. It might be that they point out something you didn't see, like: "Oh, you're considering Ingrid? Your great aunt Ingrid was the black sheep of the family- went loopy and murdered her prize-winning cats", "I'm afraid 'John Thomas Willy Dick' might be teased a little" or "...wouldn't the initials spell out 'SLAG'?"
However, from what you've written it doesn't sound like that. Looks like they just didn't personally like the name, at first. Not everyone will like Blythe. But you and your OH both love it (a lot of couples would kill to find a name they both love!) which is what matters. If you love it, use it! I assume some of his family have children of their own and they've had their chance at naming. Now it's yours!
I'm sure that once they meet your little girl they will grow to like the name much more. I say stick with Blythe! Good luck

Blythe is beautiful and the family will get use to it. Go with what you and your husband love. Make sure your daughter grows up knowing how much you love her name.I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

Your family will get used to it, and maybe even grow to love it. A family member of mine named their child a name that I detested, and within a week I was in love with the name, because I love the baby.Current Favorites:Elizabeth Lily nn EllieMary Emmeline nn MaisieSarah Evangeline nn Sadie

Honestly? It depends on whether or not your family has good taste. My dad wanted to name me after the marina he worked at. There is no way I am listening to his advice on baby names.
