me and my oh have properly decided on Ewanson Joseph for a boy, its so unusual and we both love it, we know he will probably get ewan but we dont mind that,

the thing is no one else likes it, i know it doesnt matter, but i started having my doubts, no one likes it, my mum said he is going to get picked on at school?

my grandad said it sounds like a train station, my step dad saif he is going to get ewan me son, i love it, but other people are putting me off it now, and i have started looking at other names

what do you guys think, is it a stupid name?? or should i just ignore my family?

IGNORE THEM!!!!!!!! Like you say he will probably get called Ewan but as long as your ok with that I think it's a lovely name and not something you hear every day. Don't listen to your family at the end of the day it's your baby your decision and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks xxx

This is exactly why we haven't told anyone out name choices, we don't want their opinions! Ignore them, if you love the name then go for it

Ignore them!! Atleast it's not a 'same old same old' kind of name. And either way, your son, your choice xxx



Tapalking so can't see signatures!

There will always be something for kids to pick on, if its not someone's name it's something else. My name used to be considered unusual and it was often a point of fun for others at school, but not in a malicious way, it could have been worse. We haven't told anyone at all our name choice, it makes me soooo mad when people give their unwanted opinions! I wouldn't dream of telling someone I hated their name choice!

If you both really love the name then take no notice of what anyone else thinks - hard though I know. I really like Ewan and Ewanson just makes it more original. Also he's got the option when he gets older of being known as Ewanson or shortening it to Ewan if he would prefer.

I'm the same as Robyner and wouldn't dream of telling someone I didn't like their chosen name. We also haven't told anyone our name choice for that same reason. Some people will love it but I also know some will hate it - but I really don't want to be told that, because I know then I will question if we have made the right choice.

We aren't telling anyone (other than you guys) our little boys name, because we don't care what people have to say & once he's here & has the name then there won't be anything they can do about it !

But you should definitely stick with it anyway. It's your son & you have the right to call him what you like!

Please ignore their comments. It's really not nice of them commenting on a name you decided on. It's going to be your child and your and your OH's decision so you can decide on a name and they should just accept the name and go with it.
I've decided to tell everyone the name once baby is born so nobody can give their opinion beforehand as I know my family.
I really love the name Ewan and also Ewanson. Ewan Gordon McGregor is a good looking Scottish actor who played in Star Wars xx

I think it's a lovely name hun. It's very unusual and I would agree with the others - ignore what they say, at the end of the day it's nothing to do with them its your choice. When he's here and everyone's calling him Ewanson, no one will even think twice about it! And I personally don't think it's a name that will cause him to get picked on - although its unusual I wouldn't say it was a weird type of unusual if that makes sense!! Plus when he's older he could go by his middle name if he preferred

I'm that fed up of us two not agreeing on names that when we finally do agree I won't care what anyone thinks as long as we're happy!! Xx

Ignore them, its a lovely name. Go with your gut and what u want, its no one elses business what u choose. I bet they all chose their babies names and didnt let anyone interfere with what they wanted. Thats how you've got to see it huni bun! xx

Totally concur with everyone. Ignore them. It's not like you're calling him anything obviously tease worthy like snail r something! There's lots of more unusual names in school these days, it's no problem or big deal. I like it. Xx

thankyou for your comments everyone i do feel alot better about it now, i was talking to my oh about it last night when he rang me, he said he absolutely loves that name and basically said what you girls said to me, if he really hates it he can change it when hes older, but he could also go by ewan, like most harrisons go by harri,

i feel alot better about it, i love Ewanson xx
