45, you ruined the trend! I believe the problem isn't that she decided to hand her name down. It's that she handed it down to both of them after splitting it in two. It'd be just as bad if a man did it.

45, oh stop it already, no one brought up anything even slightly sexist until you. And no, it is just as dumb when men do it.

Can you seriously be just as sexist as you say everyone else is being 92? -___- Let me answer that for you before you embarrass yourself, yes.

If a guy named Fredrick had called his sons Fred and Rick? Yeah, no, I'd definitely call him a genius. But this woman, she's just crazy! Can you see how you're not making any sense?

You seem to be the only one calling this sexist and the only one bringing sex into this, which I see no reason to say "the entire FML is sexist" on account of op, the person originally upset over this, is in fact female as is her daughter.

I don't get why this FML is so bad... It's not like she named them Batman and Robin or Squirrelflight and Leafpool. I don't see how it's selfish either... People pass down their names all the time, just being known as senior and junior, so why is this any different?

97- So if you're not sexist, then are you an extreme feminist or something? Because you're taking this a little too personal, thinking that only guys can use their names to name their kid. I know plenty of women who name their daughters after themselves, so what are you trying to get at?

132, technically extreme feminists are sexist. (In the same way that the black panthers were originally racist.)

97- I think your idea of the meaning to sexist is way off. This FML isn't sexist in any way. The only issue here is she named both her daughters after herself. It's also wrong to really assume it is an issue. Her daughters may not care when they're older and OP can also try to convince the mother to change one or both the children's names or make the name a middle name for them. She has a year after their birth to do so. At least I was told that you have 1 year during the childs first year of li

Maybe she was thinking that when she's too tired to say both of their names, she can just yell Julianne! I dunno. It's better than my what my friend said. She said she was going to name her children Katniss and Peeta, and when she didn't feel like saying both their names, she would just yell "Peeniss!" Obviously she was kidding but there are some idiots out there who would actually do that.

Reminds me of the girl who sued her parents for the name. On news. "Talula does the Hula from Hawaii" -first name

I met this girl named Bobby and I'm not even joking right now, her dad's name is Bobby, her mom's name is Bobby, and her brother's name is Bobby.

191 I know a family like that too! Her name was Bobbi with an "i" but other than that all of her brothers and dads names were Bobby!

Reply

207 I wish! Bobbi was really pretty though, but I wouldn't say she was the brightest girl I ever knew. :/

191- I knew this girl named Billie. Her middle name was Rae. She'd just glare at you and tell you to call her Rae if you said her first name, Seriously.. Billie?

or Julia and Annette or Jule and Annika or or haha. I do agree, she could have been at least a bit more creative and that way it wouldn't be a bit "much." Plus I find your name ideas and mine prettier than the latter.

62- I believe 6 meant that they could go by their middle names, or, just somehow get a random yet cute nickname that stuck.

I didn't even like it when my parents named me after my dad, but it'd be worse of they'd named me AND my brother after my dad. I do not envy those girls one bit. Congrats on becoming a grandmother though, OP!

Yeah, I know a guy who's real name is Craig, like his Dad, but I didn't know for years because everyone calls him Michael, just a random name he adopted because he despises being named after his Father that much.

My poor neighbors growing up: They were two boys, Danny and Chris. Danny, the older brother, was named for their father. Chris, the younger brother, was named for their mother. I'm the biggest dork on Earth and even I made fun of Chris for that.

If she named one daughter Juliann it wouldn't be so bad, it's because she decided to split them. At least that's what I got from it. Still doesn't seem that bad though.

Doc: It would be twins. The smaller of which would be affectionately known as "Little bastard." "Get over here, little bastard!"
