Choosing a name for your baby is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make, yet in a survey of over 2,000 grandparents on Gransnet, it was found that 1 in 5 grandparents can’t stand the names their children chose for their grandchildren.
The comment complaints were that the kids’ names were too hard to pronounce, or odd, or ‘made-up’. Other grandparents complained that their suggestions were not used, or that family names had been forgotten.
Interestingly, the study also revealed that 6% of parents admitted to having fallen out with their parents on in-laws about their choice of baby name, and a third said it wasn’t the grandparents’ business.
