    Names: To Involve Grandparents or not to involve Grandparents.

    I was interested in all of your opinions on weather or not to involve the future grandparents in the naming process of your coming arrival. I have seen some couples keep the grandparents completely out and others the grandparents are totally involved.

    So what is your opinion? What did you do and why?

    When I was naming my girls, I did seek the opinions of my parents and in laws. That said, I didn't overly focus on what they thought. I got feedback from them but ultimately, I made the final decision. They tried pushing certain names on me (mainly family names) and I wouldn't give in.
    I think involving them is nice, but certainly make your own independence choice on what you name your little ones

    As a name nerd and a grandmother I had a lot of interest in finding names for my grandchildren. I gave my kids copious lists of names (which was fine by them as I asked them first) so that they could narrow down their choices. It was interesting and I didn't push my favourites on them most of the time but they were very accommodating and in the end just chose the names that they liked.

    I keep the grandparents out of it. My parents are cool and not pushy about their opinions, but my in-laws are quite opinionated. It was just easier to leave them out of it. I'm not really a "people pleaser" so I didn't want to discuss names with anyone but my husband.

    We didn't really, but they never expressed much interest (other than wondering what we were thinking). If they were really into names I would probably have discussed it with them.
