Heres my dilemma:

last night I was at my sisters house, (and I knew all along I didnt like the name ciyanna (not for my daughter anyways) but I compromised with luis, and thats what he picked) but last night I really realized I didnt like it when I heard people saying it...

-his whole family wants her name to be ciyanna.
-my whole family wants her name to be malibu. (accept my mom)

-ciyanna is his familys style; expensive, strict, aggressive, hispanic (they use the name in spanish, and I dont speak that much spanish) and worst of all close minded (they see things there way, and only there way)

-my family is the total opposite, we more less are... Cheap, we like simple things, I can make anything I see in a store (without spending $100) just more like, accepting and free spirited... If that makes sence?

I know the decision comes down to me and luis, but what now? Who chooses? No ones changing there minds... :(:(:(:( I hate this!

You are bringing her into the world, you should decide, I think both names are cute but its your choice.

If you really don't like it, you guys are going to have to figure something else out. Maybe a totally diff name altogether. But, I think it's sweet that he picked the name. You know daddy's little girl. When she grows up you can tell her stories about how excited her daddy was and he picked her name and he loves her sooo much. It's a very pretty name. It's unique. And try not to think about what that name means to you, but how you think your daughter will be. She will have a soft, beautiful, sweet spirit. She may wear that name perfectly and change the way you think/feel about it. Sorry, i'm mushy like that.

12at24 I think...

You took the words right out of my mouth, im thinking too much about what the name already means to me, and its a stuck up little brat, im trying to re-assure myself that when shes born, shell give it a new meaning, but everytime I hear it, it makes me cringe. Everytime someone asks what im naming her, I cant say it. I want to just say "luis, I have to go through the pain of having her, so im naming her" but shes just as much his as mine, thats why its so hard.

thats exactly how my family is. :d

please, please, don't pick that name for her if you don't like it! Thats what you're going to be calling her for the rest of your life, thats your babys name. You and luis get to pick, and screw what everyone else says. Its not their child, if they like the name so much they can name their kids that. Please talk with luis because I don't want you to be forced to have this name you don't like for your child.

See, everything I pick is "too white" for luis, but im white, I know shell be half mexican, but.... Uhhhh. I like sunshine, that was my very first name picked out before I was even pregnant. I wanted a "sunshine star" a "stormy sky" and a "rusty angel" im very imaginary... Too imagery (is that a word?) for luis, he'll like it if it sounds good, but I think a whole lot deeper into it, I can actually see it (thats why I like malibu so much) I dont know what ciyanna is... Alls I see is a big ugly slimy seaweed plant with lots of algae on it.
