QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Who do you talk to when you talk about names?

WHO DO YOU TALK TO WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT NAMES?

Today’s question is: where do you turn when discussing your name choices?  These days, when picking the perfect name can seem to be a minefield of do’s and don’ts, many if not most parents-in-waiting turn to others for guidance and opinions.  How about you?

— Is your partner your principal sounding board and if so is finding a name a primary topic of conversation?

— Do you talk about names with your friends (pregnant and not) – and how honest do you really want them to be?

— Do you find that talking with your family—especially those of the parental and grandparental generations—is trickier than talking to friends—and if so, why?

— Have you made virtual friends on message boards whose opinions you value?  Have you become part of an online community that has raised issues of interest to you and that you might not have considered before?  Have they helped you in arriving at a decision?
