How do I politely tell my friend not to name her baby girl Snow Mann?
My friend is expecting and she is 8 months along. She narrowed down all of her ideas, and she came to the conclusion that she wants her daughters name to be snow. She loves the winter time, and thought that’d be a beautiful name. I thought so too, until I realized that the baby’s last name is going to be Mann. I want to politely tell her this isn’t a good idea, but I don’t want to be rude or pushy or seem too intrusive. I know it’s not my place, but I am just thinking about the years of school she will have to endure with that name. Kids are cruel. I just need advice. Should I say something? If so, how do I put it nicely?

You could mention what the full name would be, then let her consider it on her own. Don't give a recommendation for or against unless asked. The decision is hers.
(I think it is a nice name.)

Ask her if she's considered the teasing possibilities.
If she says no explain you're point.
If she says yes say ok and drop it
