17, I don't understand why you would name your dog something you don't like. Maybe OP's mom loved the name Olivia and wanted her puppy to have it. Though if that were the case, she should have waited until after the baby was born so it wouldn't seem as though OP was naming her child after a dog :/

33, Perhaps but really, who would even think that the child was named after the dog? Already there's people (not yourself) blowing this out of proportion, it's just a minor inconvenience, and a fun story. There's really nothing to get butt hurt over here.

33, maybe op's mom did not hate the name, but she just simply did not like it for her grandchild and decided to give it to her puppy. (I'm not saying it is right, but it could happen) or, maybe op's mom had no idea that op picked that name for her future baby, there are a lot of reasons here, I'm just trying to give my opinion on what I though it could have been.

Here are a few other names: Emma Claire Elizabeth Emily Isabella Ava Sophia Chloe Brooklyn Audrey Just a thought, because no one wants to live their life thinking they were named after a dog.

And mine is Claire. I know at least one person with all of those names but Ava, and they are all nice.

So OP is supposed to go from Olivia, which is a decent name, to something like "Brooklyn". Maybe OP doesn't want her daughter to have a white trash name...?

I meant to thumb down 114 I hate when that happens. I'm sorry but giving your child "a good Christian name" is asking for a coke fiend stripper daughter. IMOP

So, by your logic, I should be a "coke fiend stripper", not the straight-A student that I am, about to graduate from a prestigious university?

Boy, it's a good thing people here are able to suggest names! Olivia is probably the ONLY name OP knew.

77- Do you know how many people you've insulted named Audrey or Brooklyn? And you're not even American, so don't talk down on American names. They're different than British/Australian/Wherever names.

My mind is blown that you people are suggesting the child's name be changed rather than the dog. Is this sarcasm that I'm not getting? The naming of a person is a little more important than naming a dog.

I agree completely with 147. The baby is much more important than the dog, so it's the dog that should be renamed.

Brooklyn as a girl's name? Shoot, all I think of when I hear that (in terms of a living creature) is the character from Gargoyles.

Moms are always doing shit like this, embarrassing you In front of friends, constantly calling you, and stealing your daughters name for their new puppy.... When will they learn.

If she just got it, then maybe you can try to talk her out of the name before the pup gets used to being called Olivia... Or you can just come up with a different, and better name for your child.

It's relatively easy to re-train a dog to respond to something else. I adopted a Shih Tzu once whose previous owners had called him "Mr Rex". I promptly destroyed that and broke in a far more hardcore and masculine name: "Dr Fabulous".

Any name could be relatively easy for the dog to adapt to. Olivia has more syllables than is preferred for a dogs name, so it could probably adapt quickly to a name with less syllables. It might even respond better.

Hopefully you don't still live with your mom? Otherwise they'll be responding simultaneously whenever you call them...
