my mom and sister refused to call my son his name and they hate it.
my mo-in-law gets SO mad when I name my girls' middle names after my family. She has 3 daughters. It was their job to pass on her name... She's also mad we haven't told her the name yet because she's SO opinionated. It's easier to say "here's our daughter so-and-so" instead of hear her opinion on the name we like...
When preg with our first we had a name picked out. We told my MIL and she gave her negative unwanted opinions about it. Made us love the name more. Ha From that point on our baby names were a secret until we would “officially” announce it. Our babies. Our decision. Keep your negative opinions to yourself.
When I was pregnant with my 2nd, a girl, my sisters threw me a shower and when the monster in law and 2 sister in laws showed up late they told me they thought the shower would be running on my family's time (a stab at how my family runs late) . They sat in a corner together and were criticizing me for the name we were choosing for our daughter and just because my husband didn't come up with the name they thought it was unfair and pushed their opinions. They were the dark cloud of the shower and have continued to be with every baby. One sister calls our name choices dumb etc... ugghhh
so I got preggo with my now husband but we had been dating for a year when we found out (not planned lol) My family is very LDS and wanted us to get married. Every time we came around that was the topic. We didn't want to get married just cause we got pregnant. So I made it a point and kinda petty I would introduce the father as my baby daddy. And when the fam and I would argue I would ask them what would God do?
When my mother in law couldn't name our babies she would cry and throw tantrums. She would call my husband and lecture him about why our chosen name was a mistake and that it should be a family decision. My husband supported his mother
