There’s a One-in-Five Chance Your Parents Hate the Name You Gave Your Kid

When you had a kid and you told your parents the name you picked, did they say, “Awww, we love it” . . . or did they kinda scrunch up their faces and say, “Hmm.  Interesting”?

According to a new survey of grandparents, 20% say they HATE their grandchild’s name.  And here are the main reasons why . . .

1.  32% say it’s too odd.

2.  20% don’t like that their name suggestions were ignored.

3.  15% think it sounds made up or is too unconventional.

4.  11% think it will embarrass the child.

5.  10% wish the kid had gotten a family name instead.

6.  And 5% think it’s too hard to pronounce.

The survey also found that grandmothers had more issues with baby names than grandfathers.  44% of parents say their own mother had the worst reaction to the name they picked for their baby . . . and 42% say it was their mother-in-law.
