I refuses to let people take my joy away. I'm having a son and I don't care if people hate or love his name. His name is the name that not only I love but my husband's name. I don't care if people want to call me names and say ugly things about me. But I will not let you take away my joy of creating my children. I didn't ask for there thoughts or feelings on the name because its mine and my husbands to choice and live with. If this cause you to act immature, jealous or what ever that is fine. Some family members just need to grow up and keep there thoughts to themselves. Don't tell me I'm disrespectful that my husband is a stubbor jerk that won't change a name of my son. You know what I took part in that too and nobody get's to trash talk my man. They don't know him like I do and if they have problems with my kid's names they can take it up with my creators that's right they can take it up with my parents. They are the ones that made me the way I am you have issues with the name talk to them about it because I'm not playing this game. I don't want to talk to family that is going to call me names, bash my husband, someone else can listen to that all day long but I will not. I don't need that drama I don't want that drama, and I don't want that stress or need that stress. Proud of my little ones name Madison Nicole I love that name still do ever after 15 months since the day I put that on paper and made it legal. I will not waver on the name of her little brother. Joseph Dillian, is cute, manly and strong name for a little boy just like his daddy. His kicks really show he loves his name too and I can't wait for another 20 weeks to go by for me to make that officially your name. Thank you all for reading this was my vent for today. They can't hurt me just themselves.

I think that your children's names are lovely. Joesph is the middle name of my younger brother, and the name of one of my favorite uncles. It's a good strong name. I've never understood why people get so bent out of shape about what others name their children. When I seen the title of your post, at first I thought perhaps they've picked out an uncommon name and they're family like many are worried that the child will get picked on about it, but as I read through to the name I was like, huh? That's a lovely name. I'm sorry that your family is treating you and yours with such thoughtless cruelty. A new life coming into this world should be celebrated, not picked at in such ways as it seems they're doing to you. I wish you, and your husband, and children much happiness, and I salute you for standing your ground. Best wishes ~Syra~

It's just one person that doesn't like the name. It's long story I could explain if you want to hear but I'm sure others didn't really want to read the whole thing. My brother's wife she doesn't like the name because my son's middle name is the same middle name as her son its just that we are spelling it differently. So now she is having a big old childish fit about it saying all kin do of things. The first thing she asks me when I tell her yesterday that it's a boy was "You aren't using the same middle name Dillion." I told her yes but its Dillian. My nephew's spells his Dylan. Thank you I love the name's and I wouldn't change there names ever if they want to when they are bigger it's okay with me but other wise they are staying the way they are. My daughter's middle name is my middle name as well as my husband's little sisters middle name. We call our son JD for short because my husband's name is Joseph but he likes being called Joe.

I had two friends that had a similar disagreement, the mother of my God Son, Hunter, found out a friend who was in her last trimester had decided to use the name to, they each were naming them after a relative, and the argument went on for months. Now I was friends with them both, but I've never understood why my god son's mother went so berserk over it. I think some people just need something to get worked up over. Not realizing they only stress themselves out, not the other party.

It's a name there are millions of people in the world with the same name and some with the same first and middle name as yourself. I told her I would be upset if she used any of the same names or a combo or even revised the names it doesn't bother me. If those are the names that her and my brother like then I"m going to respect that. She will use what ever excuse to try to make me feel bad and not use. First it was because my nephew is autistic, then the fact that he doesn't know his own name. He is 4 not many 4 year old no there own name every well, let alone there middle name. Then it was you hurt my feelings you don't care about how she feel. What about how me and my husband feel? Then it was my brother mad. My brother hasn't said anything to me at all so to me that is lie because she has done that before said that my brother has said or done something that he didn't do. Now it's because I'm just disrespectful of my family, that my husband is stubborn like it was all his choice in the naming of our son. No it's not it was both of our choice. That if I love my nephew I will change for him. I love my nephew as much as I love my own two but I will change it because I love him. The middle name has nothing to do with him at all. Its a name that I have clearly stated for year's even before he was born that I liked and would use. Now I'm using it. my husband wants a jr and I don't so we compromised. JD it is. I didn't like the name she named my nephew but I never said anything to her and I'm still not going to. She should show me some respect I raised her son for 3 years, I did a lot of things that she wouldn't do and still doesn't do as mother. My mom does them instead now. I think she is just one jealous and two wants to cause drama over nothing. We are having our second child before our first born is even 2 years old. She isn't allowed to have any more kids right now because my brother doesn't want another kid right now. Her sister is pregnant again 3 kids but second pregnancy. I'm sure she will have a fight with her too over something. She does this all of the time. She can yell at my parents for it. She lives in there house and they raised me she has issues with my and my kids name she talk to them about it. Because I'm not dealing with it.

It is your son for crying out loud, why would they interfere? why not they have have kids again and they get to name it whatever they want too right? Good for you, you know what you want and stood up for it. MY kids names are all created by me and hubby as well and no one interfered lol, they laughed about it but they were not that harsh. My daughter is named Jazel, i was the one who thought of that name when she was a day old and i find the name cute and simple..i want her to be that way too... while my boy's names were named by hubby. My middle son, Juanzen Arcie are names coined from the names of all grandparents...both maternal and fraternal.. and my youngest Jhon Javen, his name was from my husband's father's name and Javen is from my name. pretty much complicated but we love it too.

My brother's wife she is through a big fit over the fact that we went with the name Dillian as our son's middle name. Her son's middle name is Dylan just that we are spelling them differently. I don't see what the big deal is. But she keeps saying mean and hurtful things. I just ignore them and tell her to leave me alone because I don't want to hear it. Someone else can listen to her craziness. Because her excuese are so childish they are not even worth my time. She had the right to name her son what ever it was and just because he is the first born doesn't make him any more speical then the rest of the kids of the family. A year ago she had no issues with the name when i was having my daughter and now with this pregnancy she does. Even before we found out the gender she was making a big fit about it. Me and my husband are sticking with our son's name it doesn't matter if they are the same middle name or not. This child is my child and I have ever right in the whole world to choice what ever names I feel like. She can say all those mean things to me but it won't change the name. It just shows the world how much she is so immature and wants me to say something back to show my brother that I was mean to her when I'm not. So I haven't say anything outside of taking it up with my parents you live with them and they raised me. Other wise I don't want her what she has to say unless its nice. I don't like her son's first name but I never told her that because it was and is her son.

Thank you. It's just one person that go kick rocks or what ever because I don't care if she likes the fact that our son's will have the same middle name or not. Mind you they are spelled totally different. So I don't care if to her I'm a b!tch or what ever she wants to call me because they are not going to hurt me. I won't let anyone get in my way with my kids names. I have every right in the whole world to pick what ever I feel like using. The rest of the people can kiss my a$$.

It is not like the two boys will be in the same classes in school or anywhere else that it could be a problem. It is not even a first name issue. And they do not have the same last names.

NO they won't be going to the same school or in the same grade. My nephew is going on 5 this summer so he is already in school. With school role calls they don't ask for there middle name when checking to see if they are there just the first and last name. Yeah our last names aren't the same any more. It hasn't been the same in like 2 years. We live like 9 hours a way so they won't even see each other that often. I think since my daughter has been born my nephew has been around her maybe 2 times once for the summer for a week and then once during Thanksgiving for like 3 days. Oh yeah they where together for 2 weeks when my parents took him and my daughter to New Orleans to visit my grandparents. So when my son is born in 4 months they will only see each other for a few times a year its not like its every day and he doesn't even use his middle name. We are using my son's middle name in a nick name form since on my husband's side of the family there is like 3 other Josephs including my husband so to not get them confused with each other we are. My husband hates being called Joey but that is what people on his dad's side of the family call him when we are at family reunion every year. The other to go by Big Joe and Little Joe, so I think JD will be a huge differences when they are all together.

Yeah don't concern yourself with what others think about your children's name. If it is the name you and your husband like then you should stick with it and not worry about others thoughts. A lot of people said that I shouldn't name my daughter her name because it is quote on quote "considered an old name". I don't think of it as an old name and I like it that's why I named her. There are names that are a lot older than my daughters name like Adam, Caleb, etc. So I don't concern myself with what other people think.

I think older names are cool some times. Some I wouldn't choice for myself but I would tell someone that they shouldn't use it. Its that's mom and dad's right to pick what ever it is. It's just one person that doesn't like my son's middle name that would be my brother's wife. She thinks her son can be the only Skyler Dylan in the world and we spell Dillian this way and not the way that she has. They aren't even like really close cousin or nothing because they would only see each other like a few times a year since we live like 2 states away.

Yeah sorry to hear that she is having a problem about what you are naming your son. And most of the time people don't call their child by their middle name. She will eventually get over it. It's just sad that she is making such a big deal about it.

Yep we are calling our son by his middle first and middle name because there are several Joseph's on my husbands side of the family. She making a huge deal out of nothing she has done so far as to call me names and insult my husband and try to use every excuse she can come up with to make me feel bad which hasn't worked. She has gone so far as to tell me not to call or text or anything her which I don't talk to her that often at all so that is fine with me but even though she doesn't want to talk to me she thinks its okay to talk back to me when I haven't said anything so 2 days ago I had to tell her to leave me and knock it off and take it up with someone else that would care because I'm not dealing with her behavior because its so childish. So hopefully she gets over it and if not her lose.

Lol, you always know what to say to kind of cheer me up. Here you say that makes me laugh a little on the inside. That so true they can take a flying f@ck for all I can with some big fat doughnuts. Now your just making me hungry for Doughnuts because girl I have been craving them like crazy. JD must really like doughnuts I'm guessing. Oh I finally found my WIC in the one place of the house I would never look unless I cleaned it. The changing table.

No we don't use the changing table to change her she moves to much now so we do it on the floor in front of the changing table. When we come in we just put things down on the change table because of all its compartments and stuff. It's for bills, putting some snacks that we eat through out the day my drinks so she doesn't knock them off the table, little things we put the key's there. I probably came in from the store, pulled it out of my pocket and it got covered up by stuff which I wouldn't have found it unless I cleaned the table top. We are going to use it once JD comes to change his diapers and just move the diaper pale back upstairs from the bedroom. I had to get my doughnut fix last night.

Madison Nicole is a very pretty name and quite popular these days. Madison has always been a popular name in the United States of America. Nineteen states have cities named, Madison. Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Wisconsin all have cities named, Madison. Have you ever lived in any of these cities, ShyBear88? As a matter of fact, I have lived in a couple of them, and been to a few others. Joseph Dillan is also such a wonderful name, and I can see why you are proud of it. Both of these names also are quite popular.

Wow your making me work tonight. Thank you I thought it was a very pretty name. Yeah it wasn't popular at least the name Madison till I was on the list this part year. But we don't know anyone seasonality that has a Madison we don't even call her Madison she goes by a shorting of that. There is a county around where we live named Madison its not to far from where we live now. The only places I've lived in is Colorado Springs in Colorado,Sterling Virgina and of course now Lexington Kentucky. I've never lived in any of those other cities. None named after a person or a name that you would use as a child name. I don't like names because of there popularity and this year for 2012 Joseph isn't a popular name. It is a popular biblical name so a lot of babies are named that around Christmas. If I had it my way it would be Dillian Alexander but my husband didn't like that name we both have to like and love the name. So we both like Joseph and that is my husbands name. I don't like his middle name or else our when son would be a Jr and my husband would have is ways. I don't like the middle name Dane. The other names we picked our for when we have another baby is Hayden Michale which Michale would be the family name after my dad and my oldest brother. Girl name we can't pick if its going to be Rachel Michelle which Michelle is my husbands mom's middle name or Kaylee Elizabeth with Elizabeth would be for several family members mainly my husband Lisa and a few other cousins with that either being there first or middle name.

It is good that you and your husband are cooperating on the names. You have a lot of great names from which to choose. I have always liked the name, Alexander. I had wanted to name one of our babies that, but it didn't happen.

The good thing is we relook at all the names in each pregnancy just in case we have changed our mind. Witch with both times we liked the same names and wanted to use the same names that we had talked out so that worked out. Yes it is good for our us to talk about it and either like and love them both. I can live with having a JD unlike with a JR and then it would really get confussing to whom I'm talking to. There ae 2 other Joseph in the family but they all have nick names so its every easy to talk to one of them with out the other one thinking your talking to them. Didn't want people getting our son confused with my husband. That happens to my dad and brother all of the time.

I agree- only you alone should give the name since it is your child, you have the right...and the in laws are just second priority when it comes to this.. My mom was so mad since her grandmother gave her the name since she was so pushy and my mom hates her name.

I wouldn't let anyone try to talk me out of the names we picked. It's just one person having a problem with the name of my son and that would be my brother's wife. Her son has the middle name Dylan and we are using the middle name Dillian but she doesn't like want us to for a list of reasons that don't even make logical reasons at all.

Why would the grandparents have a say in a kid's name. My parents haven't say a thing about my kids name. Well I know my dad doesn't care for the name JD so we told him its okay to call him Joseph or something but he didn't even like the name Skyler when my brother and his wife where having him. I don't blame I don't like that name either but they never try to make them change my nephew name or anything. They picked our names and that is the extent of them choicing names. My brother's wife is just the anunty no body besides the parents have says in a kids name.

you are so correct. you and your husband created this child and it's your every right to name that child. everyone else can just deal with it. i personally think the children's names are perfect. there's nothing wrong with those names. congratulations! best wishes for a healthy baby.

Of course there isn't anything wrong with them. My brother's wife she doesn't want us using Dillian as a middle name because my nephew's name middle name is Dylan. So she wants to say all kind of things to me like I don't love my nephew, I'm disrespectful and so on and so one. I can list everything she has said but I don't think everyone wants to hear all the excuses that she is using to try to get me to change just one of my kids name. She is fine with my daughter's name she has been for like over a year its my son's name she doesn't care of right now. She was the one being disrespectful by calling me names.

Wow, I didn't know that not only was your sister-in-law complaining about the name that you've chosen for your son, but that the name that you are going to be giving to your son is the same name as his father has. In that case, she is even more out of line for complaining about the name that you are giving to your son. Heck, in my family, the name Michael is very common. For example, it was my father's name and my brother's name. My dad had a second cousin that was named after him and one of my cousins was married to a Michael and if she had ever had a son, that was the name that she was going to give to her son and there were no hard feelings about it.

Hello Shy bear. Let me tell you a story about names the same as father's. When my oldest son was born he was named after his father making him a Junior . When my son had his daughter he named her after me. Then when he had his son he named the boy after himself and his grandfather making him the third. Now let me tell you the rest of the story. My son was in the military and he had to check the files to make sure they were his or his sons when either one of them went to the DR.Now I went to live with them and my granddaughter had the same problem. Social Security Dud not make any difference because they usually just look at the name. When my son moved to Michigan and the two kids and I stayed in the same house My son did a mail change and every ones mail went to Michigan from South Carolina. So you may want to rethink about making your son a junior.

If you read closely I said my son's middle name is different then his dad. The discussion has nothing to do with my husband and his name. My oldest brother is a junior but my dad has Spanish spelling and my brother has the English spelling making it easy to tell them apart even though he dose carry the Junior part now he has no kids at the moment and I doubt think he would use his name. In my family you name a child after someone you love weather they are part of your family or not. My parents picked one name each first or middle name after someone they loved. We named our daughter after me so she has the same middle name as my self Nicole. Her first name is Madison we don't have the same first name. Naming your child after yourself doesn't mean they actually have your first name as there first name. Yes my husband and son will have the same first name but there middle names are different. My sister-in-law my brother's wife she doesn't want our son's having the same middle name. The name might be the same but it's different spellings. They spell my nephew middle name Dylan and we are spelling my son's middle Dillian. My husband middle name is Dean so you see we aren't having a jr. I don't want a jr my husband did but I wanted a Dillian so we compromised almost 2 years ago when we have a son we would name him Joseph Dillian and my sister-in-law new that last year when I was pregnant with my daughter and didn't say anything then at all. But this time when she found out I was pregnant again had a fit before we found out the gender of our son saying she didn't want us to use Dillian because only her son can have that middle name and no one else on either side of the family. I disagree with that because she isn't the mother of my son I am and that is between me and my husband. Now she is made knowing we are having a boy and that we will not change it. My husband and son will have the same initinals that is all and that has been settled for 2 years.

Name is interesting and important to person ,my friends tell me name is the thing parents left to you, the name contain the parents hope and their wish for the world. The world a lot of friends has the same name ,if the name is more than means you are all friends for you choose the same name ,it is the lucky and mysterious! Anybody has the right to have a name ,nobody can depend on force to show any mean about other body's name! Your son's name is wonderful!

So now she wants to make a big mess out of nothing and she has been really mean thank goodness we live 9 hours away from her.

I cannot see anything wrong with your children's names. Those sounds nice and it was not a name that you should be a shamed off. As long as the name does not sound a name that can ruin their lives because of those bullies out there, it would be just very fine. ;)

The problem that someone is having is the fact that we choice the same middle name as my nephew. My sister in law she doesn't want our kids having the same middle name. They are spelled differently of course that is the only problem. Everyone else on either sides of our family loves our kids name and if they don't they didn't say anything about it. Bullies will bully a kid weather there name sounds funny or not. Any name can be made fun of if you try hard enough.

I'm hoping my immature sister in law will get over the fact that our sons will have the same middle name.

Your baby's names should be your choice. People around you can just give suggestions or their thoughts about it, but whatever they have in mind is immaterial. I did a poll for my new baby's name a couple months ago. I couldn't decide which among the 3 name combinations I would use, so I asked a few trusted friends, via Facebook what they think, and I'm happy with their choice. But, if I didn't like what they may have chosen, I still would go for my own decision. And, my husband's, of course.

I didn't ask for anyone thoughts or suggestions for either of my kids name. Everyone loves my daughter name. Its my brother's wife doesn't want us to use the middle name Dillian because its the same as her son's but they spell it a different way then we do. To me my sister in law is being every childish.

I don't blame you for thoughts or feelings. I don't yet have any children, but I know when I name them, it's my choice and that of the father of the child, no one else's. It's really stupid of people to fight over a name of a child that isn't even their's, and they have no claim to stake for a name.

Yep only you and your partner have rights to your kids name weather other people like it or not. Most people won't say anything if they don't like the name or names. I didn't say anything if I don't like someone's kids name it wasn't my choice to make but after a while those names that you don't like stick to you.

When your pregnant there is no wrong emotion to feel or go through so angry I will get some times no matter what. It's stress that isn't good for a pregnant women because it increase heart beat and blood pressure but mine is just fine. I'm not letting it bother me too much. It's just one person that doesn't like my son's middle name because its the same as her son's middle name just spelled way different. Thank you, I like to try to make my kid's name go well with our last name. Madison just seemed right for a girls name for our daughter and it stuck well. Everyone in our families love that name that I know of. Everyone loves Joseph Dillian but not my brother's wife.

It sounds like she is a drama queen and wants to get her share of attention. So be it. You just keep your peace, do not stress and do what you want to do, it is none of her business and I do not see anyway in which it could be a problem. IF she were a reasonable person she would be flattered. It is obvious she is not reasonable, though.

I'm not naming my son after my nephew. I just have always loved the name Dillian and I told her when she was pregnant with my nephew if I had a son I would name him Dillian and my husband love the family tradition we have on my side of the family where we name each person after someone in the family. Even if its just part of there name in a name its kind of a nice thing to do for people that you love and admire. So he wanted a Jr and I didn't so we went with a combo to make us both happy. He gets a little Joseph and I get a Dillian. JD it is. I'm ignoring her as best as I can and since yesterday morning she hasn't said a thing to me so I hope it stay's that way. She should think it's kind of cool that two cousin's have the same middle name just spelled differently make them two every different people.
