And then just find something really negative or an annoying comparison to them?! Sorry I know that I am being silly as I should just keep our options to ourselves but found a name that both me and DH like and even DS is on board so when friends asked if we had any choices, I excitedly told them that we had finally found one we all loved. The reaction was... Alice, Alice...who the f* is Alice!! Que laughing from friend and her DH!! Really!!!! Grow up!!
What idiots! Alice is a lovely name. That song is quite old and I haven't heard it for years. that line is twattish in itself and ruins a decent song .Don't tell people your name choice until the birth.
I know I shouldn't let it get to me but it's just annoying. Why ask if you are going to be immature about suggestions though! I really don't like one of their DCs middle names but never would have even shown an inkling of this when they were talking about theirs!
Alice is lovely - some people will always find something negative to say. My mum when I mentioned Violet, paused and said 'oh that was the harlet sister from 'keeping up appearances.' WTF? Harlet? And that show must be 25 years old, and Violet wasn't even IN it!
I told her she'd had her time to name her babies, our choices have nothing to do with her. Grrr.
I'm an Alice and I adore my name. Please do choose it, my name has served me well.
I've found that the best response to that particular song being sung at you is a blank stare and a completely straight face. Literally no response, just stare at them. Draws attention to how unfunny it is.
But to be honest the only time it was ever sung at me was behind the bar in a dodgy pub.
