Family hates babies name


And they Arnt being quiet about it either . They knew we had names picked early one but did t want to share them. We agreed to after the gender scan because they all asked and now they are being jerks .

My grandmother is suggesting other names constantly , my mom says that his name sounds redneck and with my first being Levi its to weird and mother in law is saying she won't call him by his name of we name him what we want to.

So annoying . I don't care if it sounds redneck I'm from southern Alberta, it works, and they knew we were set on names already so it's frustrating , I already call him by his name and so does my son

Ugh, this is why I'm afraid to tell my family the name before baby is here. I hope they get over it!

Tell her that if she won't call him by his name, then she won't see him. Simple enough.

the family members got to name their kids already.

If she won't address the kid by its name then she wont be referred to as her chosen grandma, nana, nona, what-have-you.

simple.

Very upsetting so I realize yes its not that simple. That's the risk taken when divulging the name early. It gives people a chance to critique. The problem is they weren't asked for their opinion they were told the child's name.

I say, stand up. Say to whomever is giving grief over your name selection, that they were not asked.

we are considering wyatt, love it - it is very south American sounding (i love old west names) but not at all redneck to me

tell them where to go, cant believe how rude they are and i agree with not letting her see the child if she acts like that, my MIL called social services over a fight when me and her son broke up for a few months (she later apologized to me and social services but by then damage was done) so I cut her out, she humbled very quickly when she learned she doesn't call the shots or actually have any say or rights to how MY son is raised

note: there was never even a fight between me and the OH we where just stressed, she literally got involved and cause problems because she didnt think i was good enough for their family
