Jenna Von Oy - Jenna Von Oy Upset By Baby Name Criticism

Actress Jenna Von Oy was devastated to read criticism of her newborn baby's name following the birth last month (May12), insisting the negative comments "cut like razors".
The former Blossom star and her husband Brad Bratcher became proud parents to daughter Gray Audrey on 21 May (12), but her unusual moniker prompted some backlash on Internet gossip boards.
Von Oy admits she has long loved the colour-referencing name, and despite Beyonce calling her own baby girl Blue Ivy in January (12), the actress still wanted to use it.
In a blog for U.S. website People.com, she writes, "I know there has been plenty of talk of the name we chose... some of it not so kind. I think we tend to forget that just as words can heal, they can also wound.
"We did not choose it because we thought that naming her a color was trendy. In fact, when Beyonce announced the name of her daughter, Blue, I was a little bummed in anticipation of the comparison people might make. Since we'd chosen the name long before, and we already had our hearts set on it, we opted not to let outside forces influence our convictions.
"Personally, we perceive the moniker to be classy and slightly old-fashioned. Perhaps this doesn't reflect the general consensus... My husband and I have tried not to have our feelings hurt over the number of folks who made mean-spirited comments (for the record, no one likes to be berated or called an idiot for making a personal decision regarding their own child), but I think it's fair to acknowledge some of the comments cut like razors. We are only human, after all."
