The Question Club
My older cousin named her baby Stormy after me several years ago. I really, really hate it. It's not to honour me, it's only because she likes my name that much. I got upset she didn't ask me, because I always thought that was protocol. But then I started thinking, even if I admitted I didn't want her to do it, she would have probably just done it anyways. But it would have made me feel like I HAD to say yes since she's family. So, I ask...|
If someone in your family wanted to name their baby (sort of) after you, would you be mad or cool with it?
Would you expect them to ask you first?
Would you be comfortable saying something if you didn't want them to use it?
Would your family probably be douchebags and use it anyway, like mine?
Also, the first Thanksgiving I was around the other Stormy, I finally had to demand she be called something else because my whole family kept yelling STORMY NO! when she'd try to eat/touch/grab something bad and I almost choked like six times. They suggested Stormy Two, which made me feel like the Simpson's dead cat, so I said Stormy Nichole, her extended name (which I find horrific - it sounds terrible together to me).
Would you get upset if your family didn't specify which one of 'you' they meant?
How would you prefer they differentiate?
Do you think you'd feel weird about there being another 'you'?
