Parental reactions to names

Post by TabithaLillian on Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:33 pm

Just had to make a general announcement! My mom actually thumbs upped all six of my top COMBOS! Oh my god! TMTAQ, what does your family think about your names/combos?

My family doesn't know that I have official combos or anything (I don't want them under the impression that they are close to getting grandbabies, because they aren't), but every now and then I'll mention a name I like.

So far, no luck. Though, my mom didn't hate Kyle (though I wouldn't use it anyway).

Very cool! Very Happy

My mom tends to like some of my names and not others, my sisters often like nearly all of them, and the men in my family usually just tune me out XD My family is usually pretty positive about it though Smile

I have no idea, to be honest. My mum knows I love names (apparently I leave lists lying all over the house, though I thought I was more discrete than that), but I don't think she knows just how much. And my sister just thinks I'm weird. I have a feeling they wouldn't like my names, though. I think they'd be a bit too out-there for them XD

No one in my family knows that I love names as much as I do. But so far, the names that I've dropped to them like hints have all been taken quite positively. I might tell my mom soon about all this though. ^.^

As far as I know, my family aren't aware of this whole name thing. I might mention it casually someday, I'd love to discuss this stuff with her more, because I know she really likes names to (I feel my parents named my sister and I really well) Smile

My mom pretty much hates all the names I like, she is much more into the trendy names. I mean my name is Casey and I was born in '90 so right on the trend. And now my mom loves all the trendy names like Jackson and Isabella. She does not like Norah or Vivienne or Nash or Murray.

My mother doesn't like any of my names, surprise surprise, and my dad is kind of indifferent to the whole thing. I don't think he'd make a huge fuss about anything I chose even if he didn't like it personally.

One thing that annoys me is I've liked the name Penelope for a while, and my mother used to loathe it, but now that Kourtney Kardashian named her daughter that, she goes on about what a pretty name it is.......GAG ME, please!

My mum thinks the whole name thing is weird but when I do mention names to her she usually doesn't like them - recently she has told me that she really hates Damon and doesn't like Jared but she does quite like Jason. She also thinks Isla is boring because so many people are naming their babies Isla - I'm starting to agree with her on that one.

I'm not quite sure how my family would like my names, but I always have honoring middles, so they can't be too bad about them! My mom is kind of a safe namer, so there are some issues with that

My mom likes all of my girls names (except Tabitha and Esma Romilly, but she doesn't hate them either). She doesn't like my boys names that much really, except Charles/Charlie. When I say that I like Stellan, she's like "Stellan? You like that?"

yay! Smile

my brother and my mom know I love names and I used to ask them but that was years ago. They got annoyed when I talked about it so I just don't anymore. That's why I got Formspring Smile
