My sil is pregnant and found out it is a boy. However I do not like the name she and my brother chose---- Jeremy Walter.
Their reason--Jeremy for their favorite Hockey player and Walter to honor our father who passed away.
The names just don't flow at all.


Anyone else dealing with this?

I know I have to get used to it but it is hard.

I like it too. Sorry, not a help to you though.
My BILs name is Jeremy Wallace. I do not like Wallace but I guess it kinda flows.

I love the name Jeremy. That is what my sister originally had hoped to name my nephew until her husband objected. My nephew's name is Andrew Isom. I really disliked his middle name, but it is a family name, and truthfully, it's used only when he's in trouble, so it doesn't matter.

sorry you don't like the name, but maybe they don't like the names you chose either?? I figure unless you gave birth or helped create the child you have no say in the name.

Besides, he could've been Ezekial
