I was wondering what you'd do if your parents hated the name that you and DH were thinking of giving your new LO. I told my mom some of my top choices this weekend, and she hates our number 1 choice. I'm really frustrated, because it's one of the ones that DH and I actually agreed on. We have this issue that we like traditional names, but we don't want it to be popular since we both have very popular names for the years we were born. So the question really is.. would you try to find an alternate name? Or would you just go ahead with it, mother be darned? I'll also add that I've run the name by a number of people and my own mother (who is usually so accepting of everything) is the ONLY person who has had a negative reaction.
