here lately cj and i have been getting mixed reviews on our little girls name, although the thought of someone not liking her name doesn't bother me one ounce, its the shear fact that people feel they need to voice their opinion on the subject. this is not their place, and completely rude in my opinion.
i am all for suggestions, but most go in one ear and out the other. we have noticed that miss v's name appeals more to the younger generation as opposed to the older "lets name every child we have after someone in our family" generation. its fine if you fall into the traditional name category, but don't openly judge our choice of a name simply because it is too outlandish for your taste. if i am being brutally honest, i believe it would be worse to have a name that 12 other children have in your child's kindergarten class have.... emma grace anyone... just sayin'.
i have gotten to the point where i am tired of the facial gestures associated with telling people her name, that i simply tell most people "its a surprise" when they ask if we have decided on a name. cj finds it mildly amusing that it bugs me so much how rude people are when it comes to this subject.
we have had v's first name picked out for about five years now, and as soon as the ultrasound tech told us we were having a little girl, her name has always been that, never once even attempting to change. her middle name, however; has been a few different things. i have never once mentioned her first name on this blog for a reason, its simply so good that i don't want anyone to steal it [not like that would happen] but still.
wow, this post turned out waaaaaay longer than i had intended it to be :)
feel free to take a wild guess. here is a hint.... its not a crazy made up name, or a name that can be spelled "ewnikkleigh". rofl.
