My MIL still loathes DS's name and it tickles me to no end. LOL. She can kiss my shiny huge butt. My family was apprehensive about his name at first but now they all agree it fits him perfectly.

Re: My family dislikes the name we've picked...

I like the name too, and I wouldn't reconsider.

DDC - My advice is to pretend that you see their point. Then come back with a hideous name, and claim that there is no other name for your baby! I did this with DS. Everyone felt the need to give me crap about my choices. I simply found the most awful name I could and said "Welp, since you all talked me out of my original choice, this is FOR SURE going to be the name I go with". I had everyone's panties in a bunch with that move. Do what you want, it's your baby. They had their chance.

Re: My family dislikes the name we've picked...

Okay, Alana and Eliana do sound very similar, and if they were siblings people might get them mixed up more easily, but Amanda and Eliana are very different names (that sound great together by the way) and since THEY are the ones who will be siblings I think that's all that matters. Unless Alana is about the same age and lives in the same house as Eliana I can't see how it would be any sort of issue at all (and even if they are close in age and live in the same house - the person that pushes the baby out gets to choose the name!)

I wouldn't change my name and I didn't with my kids!! but I do see how they think the two names are very similar! I don't think Amanda is but the other two are. you could just name her Ellie or ella and not have a longer name. My oldest daughters name is Ellie!

Re: My family dislikes the name we've picked...

This is why I don't let family know until the baby is born. I don't really care what they have to say.
