Honestly just don't listen to them!! Why should it matter what others say no one is ever satisfied with anything whether it be a name or something else. If YOU truly hate YOUR baby's name then maybe call them a nickname that everyone will call them by. If you are serious about legally changing the name contact the local county court then they will direct you further.


Naming my children was a very special thing to me because you're not just giving them any name. You're giving them a start to their identity. So really it shouldn't matter to you of how people feel about your child's name. I mean you push them out and carried them for nine months not them. But I've never had any negative reactions to my children names it's actually been positive reactions to it. Plus I really don't care what people think about my children's name anyway, if you like it that's fine. But if you don't like it don't say anything to me and keep it moving.


If your are happy with your child's name, then that is all that matters. You wanted that name for your child, and it is YOUR child. If others have a problem with it, they can get over it. You should not go to dire lengths just to please others.
However, if you want to change it, you can go down to the courthouse. They should have the paperwork there to process your request.


Why would YOU want to change your child name because someone else hate it!! I am sorry you hate my child name but is the one that was giving to him and i wont go thriugh the paper process just to please someone!!!


Well honestly I would not change my baby's name just because others don't like it . If I like it and my partner does then that is all that really matters . You could also call the baby by their middle name and then you don't have to go thru the hassle of changing it . If you do decide to do this though . You have to fill out forms go thru the courts and get it approved .
