How to Deal with Negative Reactions to Baby Name?

Stacey • 30. Happily married. 1.5 year old son. #2 due 9/16/20.

So my husband and I just found out that our baby is a boy. We have long loved the name Atlas Robert (Robert is my husband’s name so we want to carry that on; we just like the name Atlas). We like it because it is unique. So..

1. What are your honest thoughts on the name?

2. How did you deal with negative comments or reactions when you told people your baby’s unique name?

I know that not everyone is going to like this name and I am dreading telling people because I don’t want to hear their crap honestly. It’s sad because I truly love the name but I’m scared to choose it at the same time. I value the opinions of people close to me, and yet I know it is my baby and my choice. Ugh. And I’m also debating whether or not to wait til he is born to tell people. But then I don’t know if I can wait that long and people are already constantly asking me if I have name ideas. I just lie and say “not yet” lol
