    This might seem silly but my Bro and Sister in Law are a bit of an oddity, quite attention seeking kind of people but because our family knows they are like that, when they do or say things, people just accept it because it's the way they are.

    Anyway i've got 10 weeks left til i give birth, i've had numerous conversations with both bro and sis in law about names for baby and we are between two names and have been since the start. I found out via facebook last night that they have bought a dog, and guess what it's called??? One of our chosen names...and it isn't a doggy type name either.

    I just feel hurt and that it is insensitive that they could call their dog what we were potentially thinking of calling our son. It's not like i had a long list of names............:cry:

    Feel a bit silly but it's also really cheesed me off!! Grrrrrrrrr

    Yes, we'd talked about numerous times.

    Only a couple of weeks ago, i had posted the 20 week scan pic on facebook and the subject of the names came up, the sis in law even picked the name that she has now called the dog!! :dohh:

    If you have had recent conversations about the name then I wuld personally think they had been quite vindictive really and would ask them about it. They may have completely forgotten or not registered but I would ask them before getting het up about it.

    It would piss me off though hun yes!xx

    That would REALLY upset me x If it is still one of your names on your shortlist I personally would have it out with them and say, quite seriously, that if our baby is born and we want that name we WILL be using it. So if you want to re name your dog you will understand.

    I dont mean to sound heartless to the dog lol but a dog will be around for about 15 yrs and you will name your CHILD who will be around for about 80yrs + only gets named once
    Dont back down!

    That's soo rude! (sounds like something my SIL would do). You should try to find out some of the baby names she likes then steal it!

    what do u mean she picked the name? Like she came up with it?? or you came up w/ it and she said "i like it."
    Perhaps, if its the former, she always liked the name and was planning on naming dog/baby that name and mentioned it to you - so u can share if you wanted. if its the latter -------um, no excuses i could think of

    I would definitely be pissed as well.

    I mean it's cute when your stepdaughter names her baby doll your baby's name. (Yes this is going on lol).

    It's disrespectful and rude to name your dog the name a RELATIVE (not merely an acquaintance) plans to name their child. As I read that someone said earlier in this thread, it's not as if they didn't know!

    The fact that she suggested the name and THEN did this just makes it that much worse...
