I got an email yesterday with a picture of my step-brother and his new dog, who’s name is [name]Lilly[/name]! Our top name for the baby is [name]Lillian[/name] with nn [name]Lilly[/name]. We do have one other name we like a lot, [name]Brooke[/name], with [name]Lillian[/name] [name]Brooke[/name] being the top contender. I was planning on keeping [name]Brooke[/name] _____ for a back up name.
I am not mad at my step-brother, I just feel a little annoyed and let down, like the name is a lot less special now. My step-brother had no idea any of the names we were thinking about. The dog is almost a year old so it is possible that she came with that name. I don’t feel like I can ask him to change it, he has had her for a week or more and now told everyone the name. Maybe it’s more about that [name]Lillian[/name]/[name]Lily[/name]/[name]Liliana[/name] etc. is more popular than I am ok with.
My step-brother and [name]Lilly[/name] the dog live in a different state and we only see them about 2-3 times a year. But my whole family lives near him. So even if it doesn’t affect me a lot, it might be wierd for my family who spends a lot of time with him and the dog. My parents would have a grand-baby and grand-puppy with the same name! My husband didn’t seem to care at all when I told him, he sees my family even less than I do.
Anyways, kinda just wanted to vent here to people who might understand. [name]Do[/name] you think I should still use [name]Lillian[/name] nn [name]Lilly[/name]? Use the backup name, [name]Brooke[/name]? Come up with something totally new? Does [name]Brooke[/name] [name]Lillian[/name] sound ok? Sounds a little akward to me.
Thanks for reading/listening.
