A while back I asked you all about Indian names. Well, we finally picked them Neel and Leila. My family is great with them, but my husband's family is complaining

...the reason we don't share our baby's name with anyone until AFTER she is born. Ugh. Why do people have to be so rude??? :

People seem to think as long as the baby isn't born that they have some sort of input on YOUR choice. After the fact, when it is a done deal, they can't say much about it!!!!!

i think those are beautiful names.

we, too, wait until the baby is born to share our name. that way it's a surprise for everyone (since we already know the sex), but also keeps them from bad-mouthing it since the child has already been named.

LOVE the names. Our daughter's name is Leila. We're still working on boy name options. We also don't tell most folks what we are REALLY thinking of naming our child... keeps the negatives at bay.
