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?
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 life you can change their name before it is permanent. If i am wrong about that my apologies.
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.
Ooh nooo! People really should realize that their children aren't pets...
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!
Why are they going to hate her? Because she named them after herself? How is that any worse than a man hypothetically naming his son "Doc Bastard III"? Sounds like you have some unresolved mommy issues.
