    Probably not, I’m hoping to have kids about a year or two apart and I can’t imagine a 1 or 2 year old coming up with the greatest names!

    I wouldn’t. I very vividly remember wanting to name my little brother Stupid Poop, haha.

    I think it would be different if the kids were older Though.

    Hmmm..I don’t know. My Fiance and I already have a list of names we really like to use for our future kids. I remember my parents allowed me to give my input about my brother’s name but we all thought he was a she so my parents named him after my dad.

    I guess if they suggested a name that I liked I would but most kids would probably want to name their new sibling something stupid like Aquaman or Princess Sparklebottom.

    When my parents had my little sister I was determined that she be named Rosegirl (I was 5 at the time).  My dad was all for it…thank god my mom wasn’t so easy going.  They did however make a compromise and give my sister the middle name “Rose”. 

    I think you should at least consider their suggestions.  They can always be tweaked.  Later in life when siblings realize their bond it becomes a pretty cool story that they can share.

    @SouthernGirl:  my sister was born when I was 4 and I had a myriad of inappropriate names in mind for her.  I might take it into consideration if they came up with a good one though.

    I ‘named’ my sister, mostly because my mom had A B C picked out as her name and I just called her bump B C since the day I heard it. So that’s what she is now πŸ™‚

    However, I will only consider suggestions. I do know a child (who’s a teen now) that’s named after a Disney princess (and its obvious) because that’s what her older sister wanted. Sorry, overruled.

    Haha, I was 4 at the time, and my brother just happened to be born the day before my birthday, so my mom was still in the hospitL the day of and I totally didn’t get my party like I usually did. I remember asking my mom why she couldn’t have made him stay in there until after my birthday. I have since learned that babies don’t work that way. I’m pretty sure I also called him Wrinkles too for a little while…

    But yes, I’m sure he’s really glad he ended up with a more appropriate name πŸ™‚

    Ha. Well, my sister was on a Land Before Time thing when I was born, she really wanted me to be “Ducky” but alas, my parents picked another name, still from the movie! (And no, I’m not Little Foot).

    A family I went to church with did this… they were odd to begin with but they let their holy terror of a child decided she wanted her sister to be named Nebuchadnezzar, yes, like the Babylonian King. AND THEY DID!!! Her legal name isn’t that, but socially they seriously call this child “Nebby” and “Nebuchandnezzar” and they WILL correct anyone (including the babies grandparents) who trys to call her by her legal (less crazy) name.

    So I guess for me it depends. Honestly, most likely not because I already know what names I want and they are family names.
