Boy name...told today that it is an awful name and now I am really second guessing =(

I gave hubs more say so in this little guys name since I picked our first sons name and today I told a lady that comes into our office all the time the name we were thinking of and her response was that it is awful and don`t name my kid that. It hurt my feelings because she is a `mother` like figure to me and I do value her opinion. I understand not everyone will LOVE a name you pick but the way she hated it really is making me second guess the name...even if you don`t like a name you are polite about it but she just outright said she hated it =( I do like the name and I am not against it-like I said hubs was the one that picked it out but now I am really having doubts… The name is Jace (like ace with a J) and my family seems to be all for it and supportive –first name that everyone in my family doesn’t seem to hate but now I think we need to start the search again and find a different name =(



newbiepregger - 1020 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) People can be so hurtful! If you hadnt told her the name until the baby was born, do you think she would have been as rude? Probably not. That is why we waited to tell anyone our sons name, I just didnt want to hear anyones opinion. Jace is beautiful!

brookes first baby - 1021 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Sounds nice to me!!!

zem6 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Don't let this one person get you down!! I happen to love the name Jace I think its a good name. When we told Mt mil the name for our newest baby she hatted it. But we decided that we loved it and if she didn't well that's her problem. Don't change just for some rude person.

rachie83 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Don't worry about what other people say, it's your choice. We kept our daughters name (Karlee) a secret until she was born because we just didn't want to hear people's opinions.

achance2dream - 1022 days ago In the moment I was hurt and sad that she didn't like it but I am over it!! She doesn't have to like it-you ladies are right it is a name hubs and I like so why should it matter what anyone else thinks but me and him?! And krystasappleseed I didn't even think about teen mom DANG YOU lol and even though I think she is NOT a mom I still like her sons name...obviously =)) LOL So I think we are sticking to our guns and naming this little guy Jace. Thanks so much ladies you made me feel so much better!!! =)))

lilmissesmum- - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I think its a great name when I first read the poll I thought it would be a really out there name but jace is a nice name dont know why she would have said something like that. The way she did it was kind of rude to, sorry I know you respect her and all but she needs to have some respect for you and your choices and it doesnt sound like a supportive response at all. I hope you figure it out.

anotheryummymummy - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Its a nice name! We didn't tell anyone our name choices until after the birth for this very reason. The woman in question should how to phrase things better and when to not say anything at all.

nicolemarie26 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) jace is one of our two names we have picked out if we are haveing a boy...and my mother in law doesnt like it. reminds her of a boy she taught named jason who was appearantly not the most behaved child and so it leaves a sour taste in her mouth. i love my mother in law and we have a great relationship, but everytime i bring it up...she says she doesnt like it. i know what your going through....its a GREAT name. its different but not too different. i say keep it if you love it!!!! it will grow on her.

rbrencur - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) if you and hubby like it name him that. others have no say. this is why we kept our name and name choices a secret really until after emmaline was born and the birth certificate was signed (I did it right in the delivery room lol). That way people will likely keep their nasty comments to themselves lol.

skydivedoc - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) If you and your husband love the name that's all that matters. You can respectfully disagree with someone you hold in high regard. It seems to me that she didn't take your feelings into consideration when she said that so that would make me second guess my opinion of HER. Honestly, if you feel that she is someone who's opinion is important enough that you would change the name maybe a conversation with her is in order. Not to justify her response but to tell her how she made you feel. She may not know that you respect her so much or that she could have such an impact o you. If you feel uncomfortable having such a conversation with her then it means that she's not in a position to have such influence over you.

krystasappleseed - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) if u like the name. use it. u cant please everyone besides its your son why would u want too. i considered that name but it reminded me of that aweful teen mom. Like I said i guess it wasnt for me ( lol especially since now we know its a girl) dont let that mean lady bug u. she should know that being pregnant u r even more sensitive and so she should have been even more sweet about it. i wouldnt tell her anything anymore. if u want that name.. u use it. its ur son. I hope u do use it.

mommynicole81 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) That lady needs to just keep her opinions to her self my best friend goes by jace all the time but his real name is jason it's just a nickname his family picked up for him and it has stuck and its really a good name .

ttc6thbaby - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) jeeze, i have a son named ernest. If we all went by what others said, no one would have a name! If you like it (i do) then go with it and forget everyone else. Older people prefer different types of names, and to each her own!

savedbygrace - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) What matters most is if you and your hubby love it! My lil guy is due in May and we are naming him Samuel Luke. Some in my family dont like it but we LOVE it! Samuel was a mighty man of God and plus Samuel is in my hubbys ancestors. So I think Jace is a beautiful name!

lilyxox19 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I don't see anything wrong with that name. I actually like it and will be adding it to my list of future kids names. All that matters is that you and your husband like the name. If I ever get a baby girl I am naming her Alexis. My mom hates the name but I told her she better get use to it because that's the name her future granddaughter will have. You need to have more confidence in yourself!!

clar-issa - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Jace is a cool name. I like it. If people are older, they don't like anything too modern- just classic names. I would suggest not to tell anyone the name you choose. Me and my husband told everyone and got mixed emotions when picking out a name, but friends of ours didn't tell anyone and they seemed to really enjoy not having to explain their choice to anyone. I really like Jace.

achance2dream - 1022 days ago Thanks ladies!! Our first sons name is Paxton so we wanted something also a little unique but not OUT there and this was one of the only name that we both agreed on and that hubs REALLY liked. I guess I just need to accept that not everyone will love his name but I really do like it and feel like it really could be OUR kids name. Now if we could only figure out his middle name... =)

xolilangel785 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I think its a great name! I understand what you mean though. The only name me and my SO could agree on for our baby was Damien. Everyone hated the name and said they weren't going to call him it! We didn't care though and stuck with it. Now people are starting to warm up to it and think it's an okay name. His middle name is Christopher-Michael and people gave us crap for that too but we had our reasons for it and it's our baby so we stuck by it =)

isisgrl13 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) your being silly:( one person says neigh?? she will love j Jace no matter his name. hugs

christinejo86 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Forget about her. Name your baby what ever you want, he is your baby. We are namming our baby Matilda and everyone we told in real life had somthing bad to say about it. So I just stoped telling people what the name is. And if they have a problem with it after she is born too bad.

jjrhodes - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Jace is an awesome name! My husband picked out our daughter's middle name before she was born, Amarah, and at first everyone kinda turned their noses up at it and then he started second guessing it, but I LOVE it and it is so different and meaning behind it fits her personality so well (Fiery princess). I so forget what everyone else says. It's your child and your decision. Keep the name :)

MunchieAndScrunchie - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Why do people think they get to question what you are going to name YOUR child?? I never really understood that...

Avas*Momma*09 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Jace is a great name. Its not like you were wanting to name him some off the wall crazy name. If you and DH like the name and want to use it then don't let anyone make you change your mind.

BabyMaker39 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) People suck. Plain and simple.

meg24 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) never second guess yourself! It is your child, not hers

waiting4number2 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I think its a cute name! Don't let someone change your mind. This is your child, your decision.

ontariogirl - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Jace is no different than Jay or Chase, some people are just wierd about different names and don't let it bother you. A name is meant to identify someone, it's supposed to be original so that everyone has their own unique name and that way people don't get mixed up about who you're talking about......so coming up with something different like Jace is creative and there's nothing wrong with it. As far as I'm concerned, I'd rather have a totally different name than to have my kid be on of 3 kids in their class with the same name because it happened to be really popular that year!

DixieMay - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I think that a great name.. Your the one that is going to be calling your baby by the name more then anyone else.. As long as you like it i would go with it!!

numerouno1 - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I love the name some people are just dumb and Jealous so they make you second guess yourself If you love it they use it people tell me how i spelt my daughters name is dumb but i dont care her name is unique and thats better than a supper common name Besides people will get used to it and than they will love it

babydusted - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) It's a great name. Kinda reminds me of Jason, Jayson, Jaxson....really different and unique. I wouldn't listen to the nay-sayers. Maybe some famous author will write a best seller with the name Jace and turn your friend's opinions around!

1st-time-Toya - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I really like the name Jace! its a cute name.......did she say why she didnt like it? if you really value her opinion that much i would ask her why she doesnt like it and go from there.

mammaamy - 1022 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I think Jace is a great name. It's unique without being too out there. J names are the in thing these days so I def. think it's cute. I know a couple little boys that go by jace and I think their names are jaydon (spelling?). Sorry your having doubts, we all have different taste though, so don't fell too bad.
