Family

I am bringing the first mixed baby into the family. My dads side is a racist family. They have come to terms with the fact that the baby is mixed now. But i wanna name my Daughter Araya. None of them like it they say its too Ghetto. I wanna be nice since they all are being nice now about the color. But i don't know how to tell them nicely its my daughter and what they wanna name her doesn't matter. Any ladies gone through this? Any suggestions

Im bring the first mixed baby into my family as well. The name they will get over if they got over the color. My step dads family is from south Carolina abd are like all for the kkk and very very racist. I on the other hand can't and won't date a white guy due to them being like really really weird to me lol. I've always dreamed of having a little Spanish baby and yesterday my wish began unfolding. I'm 4 weeks 4days and the happiest girl Alive.

Name your daughter what u want  but be careful what u name her cause many people are stereo typed by there name especially later in life just something to think about. I am black white native American and irish. I am so glad my name is regina because alot of my friends coming up had names that always got mispronounced or they were stereotyped all because of there name.

My husband is from Mexico and our son was the first mixed race on both sides. My in laws don't speak much English so we wanted a name that they could say but also something that my family could say. We named him Carlos Amir. I'm having a girl now and we are naming her after my MIL who passed away recently. Rosario Sophia, which Rosario is harder for my family to say but we will call her Rosie for short. My family was not too sure are about things at first but they came around. It's hard to not like a cute little baby! No matter what their race or name.

Both of my daughters are black and white and my family is the same exact way i am the youngest also the first to bring in another race into my entire family and do what you want its your child and if they love you they will support you and your decision no matter what.
