I have 5 weeks to my due date and have yet to announce the babies name for that exact reason!
Its got nothing to do with what family or friends think id put her in her place its your baby so its your choice of name..
If she asks again just simply say we have decided we want to keep her name a secret till she's born. Make sure your significant other is on board with this so when you tell her you can say it's Our decision as her parents :)
I like that name!! I had to hear the same thing from my mother in law and it got to the point where I had to tell my fiance to tell her to back off. She is into the traditional names and I wanted something cute, different, but still professional and strong. I loved the name Carter ♡ but everyone talked me out of it. Do what you want and name your baby what you want!
I like Leslie. Name her what you want.
That's a really cute name, and everyone can spell it, and everyone can pronounce it although there will unlikely be another child in her class with that name. Very cute.
Thanks ladies! She had me questioning if it was a dumb name or not. If I'm having a girl I'm definately going with it :-)
Luckily I dont have deal with that problem. My mother-in-law and I are very close and she never gave us her opinion, she would just say what ever we'd decided on was our choice and was always supportive! But if I had been in that situation I probably wouldn't have shared the name with her. Its your baby. She had her kids! LESLIE is a beautiful name. If you like it and it feels right for your baby, just go with it! Dont let anyone stop you! Good luck girl, hope this helps you.
Okay number 1: the baby is yalls baby and not hers. She had her opportunity to name her child or children whatever she wanted. 2. Leslie is a beautiful name for a girl. Its even better because it is a name passed down. 3. Dont let other peoples opinions speak louder than your own. If i have a girl i am naming her Harmony Larissa. My husbands mother doesnt like the name. She said that kids would make fun of her and call her hommony like the stuff you put in menudo... i guess because i am hispanic. Although this upset me... i asked my husband and everyone else. Everyone loved the name. Especially my husband because music is a huge part of my life. Bottom line. Its your decision. Helps to have the daddy on your side.
Just went through this also thankfully my bf put his mother in her place and said it's our kid not hers. Maybe your bf needs to have the same kind of talk with his mom. She should be thankful that she's having another grandchild regardless what you decide to name it
I would keep the name a secret until the baby is born and papers are signed!!! Mils can be very rude when it comes to names
I've been having issues with the mom in law too.. lol.. it's your baby, you name your baby, what you want and what feels right. You don't need her approval.
Um no its a sweet name tell her to sit on a stick and spin, some ppl these days dont know wat a boundary is and just cause u ask and opinion doesn't actually mean they have any say so
It's your baby,not hers. Name baby whatever you want. She can say that she doesn't like it, but that's all she can really do.
