Choosing the name of your child is no easy feat.  While some names have been kept tucked away inside your brain for years, you still have to navigate through family traditions, current trends, and of course their own wishes. And through all this vetting you are still not making your parents happy with your pick of names. A poll of over 2,000 grandparents shows 20% can't stand the name chosen for their grandchild.  69% feel it's perfectly acceptable for them to voice their opinion on their grandchild's name. Perhaps the most concerning find: 17% of grandparents said the disagreement over their grandchild's name happened the day they were born. Grandparents biggest issues with the names of their grandchildren are they’re too hard to pronounce, "too weird," or "ugly." The names hated most by grandparents were: Aurora, Charlotte, Elijah, Finn, Jack, Lindsay, Noah, Sally, and Tabitha.
