AIBU to be miffed at people who I don't even know on mn criticising my choice of names for my kids!!! Everyone seems so bitchy and stuck up!

Some posts even call the child themselves horrible things over a name PARENTS chose!!

I don't ever happens actually. I think that's just your very defensive interpretation of it. People will say that a specific name conjures up negative images of the way they imagine a child might be, but I don't think anyone goes as far as insulting/denigrating an actual child, do they?

We told immediate family our chosen names for DS. I knew he was a boy so didn't have any girls names. So put off by everyone's reaction that my second pregnancy I referred to the baby as max all the way through. Maxwell for a boy and Maxie for a girl.

Dd ended up with a different name after her birth though.

If RL people offer judgement what do you think people on a faceless, nameless forum will do?
