Lovely grandchild, so-so name

Cindy, via Facebook:

"So my hairdresser is thrilled that she'll be a grandmother for the first time next month. She's not as thrilled with the name her daughter has chosen for the soon-to-be-born baby girl. "It's Lennin," she said. "Like John Lennon or linen sheets?" I asked. "It's Lennin. The kids will call her Lemon," she replied. I didn't have the heart to mention the other Lenin. Maybe kids aren't taught about him in school anymore."

DFO: This reminds me of that "Seinfeld" episode in which George wanted to name his first child, "Seven."

Question: Did your kids choose a name for a grandchild that you don't like?
