So, we picked a name for our baby boy and we did it with the help of our four year old DD.
DH liked it, I did too and then when we told our DD if she thinks we should name her baby brother that, she was like YES! So now she calls him that name all the time (when she talks to the belly, etc.)
We thought - Yay! Baby name issue ~ resolved.
When my mom found out what the name would be, she was like "Ughh.. that is not a cute name".
We are originally from a country in Europe and she wanted us to give the baby a name that is from our country's origin.
Problem is, we don't like ANY of them (at least not enough to name our child after it) so we picked a universal name (Latin/Italian origin).
The thing is, I think that she only doesn't like the name because it's not something that she'd name her child. Not because the name is ugly. The name is really cute and she knows it ! She just won't admit it and she's being hard-headed and trying to get me to dislike it.
Anyway, the biggest problem is that she mentions it every time I go to her house. Like, in the middle of conversation or right before I leave, she'll say something like "OMG, You know who else named their child THAT name.."
Like she can't say the name, she says "THAT" name with a nasty facial expression.
Or she'll say "What about this name.......?"
I am on the verge of telling her to buzz off. I don't want to, it's my mom, but it's getting really annoying.
She's trying to get me to start hating that name.
I tried telling her nicely that she's had her turn naming children, now it's ours, we've even had arguments about it and not talked for 2-3 days but she just won't let up. She'll let go and then the next time I see her, she'll do it again.
Sorry, I had to vent.
