I can get upset if my Husband says horrible things about names I love, but he usually doesn't. I cried for a while after it was pointed out to me why one of my favourite names, and likely name for this baby, was a bad idea, but the concerns were valid and I agreed with them. If I hadn't agreed with the points being made I wouldn't have cared.
I don't know if your age might have something to do with it, most people are more concerned with other peoples opinions when they're teenagers. You gain confidence as you grow older and get to know yourself better. By the time you're 25 and your brain's fully developed you won't be so bothered about these things.
Now, about the other thing you said above about some people being blunt... that's how it is. You are going to run into lots of different people during your life and not everyone will treat you like a frail porcelain doll. Some people are blunt and straight forward, others are sensitive and careful. Don't put so much weight on what others say. Also, from what I've seen, your threads get plenty of responses.[FONT=Palatino Linotype][CENTER]My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014[/CENTER][/FONT]

Being rejected by strangers on Nameberry is easier than being rejected by family and friends.
That's why it's such a great place to practice (in addition to Nameberry's love for historically well-established names in general).
Over time, you'll become less sensitive to criticism and more confident about your name loves.
You're a sweetheart, Haley; I have a feeling more Berries are going to support you in your vintage naming quest than not.
"Close your eyes and think about it.
Which name do you really, really love the most?
Go with the one that makes you smile every time you say it."

Clementine, rather than hearing my mum say it. I hope you're right about the sensitivity thing! Aw, thank you, that's nice of you to say Hopefully you're right!
