My sister has changed her mind, once again, and decided to name my new born niece Peyton (as in One Tree Hill). I don't think this is such a universal name and her dh hates it...is it that bad or should i talk to her in case she regrets it?

If her Dh hates it then surely it should be vetoed and a name found that they both likeconfused after all it's both their child not just hers maybe she could have it as a middle name?

He picked the name of their first dc so technically it's entirely her choice confused

DH wants to call outs Peyton ATM. I have vetoed, but if they had an agreement that she could pick whatever, then stay out of it and let her pick

Oh well if it is entirely her choice then her Dh and you will have to let her get on with it.

I think its a lovely name and if he picked the first and have agreed she gets to pick this one then let her chose what she likes.

Wasn't Peyton the name of the evil nanny in The Hand That Rocked The Cradle?

Peyton place.

WinnieMac Sat 08-Oct-11 16:59:37

Oh dear. She can always change it by deed poll when she's 18.

I like it blush but it's between them don't you think....

what effing said

Even though the agreement between them means it's her choice this time, I think choosing a name her DH hates is unwise (to put it mildly).

But it's for her to sort out with him, and if I were you, I'd stand well clear.

I thought it was a boys name when I saw the thread title. Not a big fan to be honest. Does her DC1 have a less unusual name or not? I agree with scaevola even though she has the choice she shouldn't choose a name that her DH hates. Does she like the name he chose for DC1

I teach one and she has a gob that would make that girl from Little Britain sound posh! Would put me right off! Sorry.

As long as their surname isn't Place.

I keep reading it as "Peyote" and THAT really would be a bad choice.
So... could be worse. wink

Peyton is top 300 in the UK now so fairly standard.

I quite like it.

WorzselMummage Sat 08-Oct-11 20:22:14

I quite like Peyton but would have thought it a Boy name. Wasn't there a character in Dawsons Creek called Peyton?

MrsDaffodill Sat 08-Oct-11 20:22:26

I know a girl Peyton.

manicinsomniac Sat 08-Oct-11 20:29:18

It's unisex but more of a girl's name in the UK:

Girls - 2010 ranked number 254 in popularity (198 babies named Peyton)
Boys - 2010 ranked number 1911 in popularity (11 babies named Peyton)

Honestly.... she's your niece not your daughter!

I wouldn't say anything to your sister. IMO it's not the best of names, but then it's not my baby and whist it might not be something you or I would pick, i'd let it alone. Let your BIL fight it out. smile

picnicbasketcase Sat 08-Oct-11 21:26:23

Peyton Leather would be a great name for a dominatrix.

notlettingthefearshow Sat 08-Oct-11 22:22:28

I agree with Scarlett - don't say anything. It's not your call. If you try to talk her round and she chooses it anyway (sounds likely), she will always remember you never liked the name. Mind you, for me it would definitely be a problem DH not liking it - but anyway, not our business!

I actually think it's quite nice. I'm sure you will grow to love the name because you will love your niece.
