Quoting KNZ.:" Did you care? Like, if you 'n your closest friend usually agreed on everything, but she hated the name ... [snip!] ... like talked about it, alot, (assuming you saw each other/or at least spoke daily) did you just brush it off or get annoyed? "

I'd probably tell her to either shut the hell up about it and get over it or just piss off. It's mine and SO Choice not yours. How would you like it if i said i
hated your kids names? <--- but im kinda a b***h when it comes to my kids stuff. Thats only if she just wouldnt stop mentioning it though if she just said it like once i would let it roll off

Quoting KNZ.:" Like, she knows i don't love the middle name, but also that i can't change it now. But she keeps saying the name together then being like, "gross." "


That's very rude and you should tell her that it's hurts your feelings, especially after you explained why you chose that name.

Good point.
My friend knows i'm not in love with the middle name dude chose but since it's not going to change, i wish she'd say less negative stuff about it.



The name's Quinn Stephen.

That's a cute name! And btw, lol, Stephen is one of the middle names we're using.. it's my husband's middle name.

Doesn't sound like a very good friend to continue to bring it up. I'd tell her that too. She needs to stfu.

Quoting KNZ.:" What sucks is i don't love the name either- well, like, part of it, but I made compromises with my dude to honor a family member so i can't just not use it, ya know? "


Well you're BFF's you can't tell her that?..I mean if you're not all YAY over the name yourself she should be more on your side to boost you up, right? I understand how compromise goes on a name, I wasn't a fan of my daughters name at first, but it suits her so well now that I wouldn't change it for anything.

I would never tell my best friend that I hated the name chosen for her baby. I can't imagine ever being like, "Ew I hate that. Why would you pick that?" I'm sorry she's telling you that.

Quoting KNZ.:" Me neither, if it was just once."


Right. If she went on and on about how stupid it was or how much she hated it...I would get pissed.

:D it's my dude's dad's name.
Also the last guy i dated before him, but uh..yeah haha



His last name ends in an "N" (but it's longer/3 syllables) so i agree it's an overload of N sounds but it's not like we're all gonna go around using all three of his names every time we talk to him :)

That's exactly my thought! Like, if something's not gonna change- for valid reasons- find ways to get onboard with it, don't bash it- when you ARE gonna use it :?

I LOVE the name Quinn. Stephen doesn't sound bad after it at all. Are you gonna call the kid by his full name every time you talk to him? Gotta tell her to just shut up about it already and that it's bumming you out.

I hated the name my BFF chose, until it was born and I couldn't see the baby being named anything else. Maybe it will grow on her!
