hi QueenV,

I felt that way about my own son's name when I knew my mother didn't like it. I named him Felix despite her pronounced loathing of the name, and trusted he would grow into it for her, even though she had different/negative associations at the time. She's OK with his name now, and I have always been happy I stuck to my guns.

This seems different to me since it is my child, not grandchild, whom I agree I would have no say in liking/disliking/changing. but I understand that I'll need to move on, or find a solution that is more palatable that reflects her given names if he is unwilling to change it.
