    A conversation we had a few weeks ago -
    Me:I really like the name Elsa
    Husband: Urgh, it sounds like ulcer.

    My mother and sister are constantly hating on the names I love. I do not plan on having children for a few more years, but occasionally I will throw out a name that I love, and they will tell me how much they dislike it. My sister tells me that she feels sorry for my future children because of the names I suggest. In my opinion, they are not kre8tiv, trendy, or weird.

    So far they have not liked:
    Charlotte
    Oliver
    Silas
    Lucia
    Jude
    Henry
    Adele
    Jasper
    Sebastian
    Milo
    Ezra
    Atticus
    Titus
    Leif
    Jonah

    I will probably still use some of these because I really do like them, but it is likely I won't share my children's names with them until they are officially named.

    Me: My favorite girl's name is Celia.
    Grandpa: Stealia?
    Me: *mental facepalm*

    My Parents: What do think of the name Greta?
    Grandpa: Greta Van Sustren?
    Me (in my mother's womb): Noooooo!

    Yeah, basically my Grandpa ruins all my names.

    My mom is particularly great at ruining names. Henry got a "You will not name my grandson that!" with such a sheer amount of contempt I can't even fathom it.
    My dad immediately changed Leopold (my brother's favorite) into Tadpole.

    And my favorite naming conversation:
    DH: I like Virgil.
    Me: *raised eyeball*
    BIL: *from the kitchen* Yeah, Virgil the Virgin. You can't tell him Uncle Clay saved him from that.
    DH: Shut it Chuck!
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire

    I haven't had a problem of names being ruined by people pointing things out about them. But I have some names I love that have been ruined by certain family members owning the name. I wouldn't want my child to share a name with a relative in prison for kiddie porn or an alcoholic no matter how much I love the name.
