So, the back story, DH is pretty insistent that if new LO is a boy we will be naming him after his maternal grandfather, who passed away. He was a nice guy and all, and I think his name was nice too, but 1) He hated his name and never ever went by it, would probably be upset that we would force a kid to have it, and 2) It's just been a little too popular for the last several years for my naming tastes-so I struggle with it. I understand why he wants to do it, he loved and was very close to his grandfather, but I'm just not super in love with the name.
And we can't come together on a girl name we both love at all, and so I posted on a certain "social media site" where I mainly connect with close friends and family simply- "we are having serious name issues" to which friends replied and gave suggestions, or joked around about names like Bocephus (you know how these things are, right?)
A good friend of mine said that I could "have her favorite names for boys (Xavier and Oliver) because she is DONE having kids", and I said that "I like the name Oliver, but that DH had put his foot down and was insisting that we name a boy after his grandfather." The whole exchange was a little flippant, but we are close and humor between good friends is subtle at times and sometimes not apparent to outsiders. I get the hazards of social media and all! But then MIL jumps in and says, "His Grandfather was worthy of the honor." just like that. Now, I like MIL, she's fun to visit with for a few days (DH can't do more than 4 or so with her, without getting aggravated). She's fun to drink a few glasses of wine with, she has a good sense of humor. But she's pretty self centered (though she doesn't think that) and kind of insensitive (though she doesn't think that, either!) and so she has no idea what my feelings are on that name in reality, for all she knows, maybe I have family I'd like to name my kids after too...She has no info here other than that post, and it just rubs me the wrong way. And now, I'm even less thrilled about the naming!
Am I being nutty here, would this sort of thing make anyone else a little batty?
