I posted a while ago about how my husband's family was upset we were NOT going to do William as a name option if this baby ends up a boy. They are still very upset, and NOW it's starting to wear on my husband. He brought it up today about how it's really bothering him that they are so upset about it and started bringing up name combinations with William as the first name.



It's driving me insane, I get you have this "family tradition" but I don't want to do it. I like the name we have picked out and you people are already getting the last name carried on if it is a boy so why do you need more? I was already nice enough to do "Marie" for our daughter ( my MN but also every single female in DH's family) and I was carrying on McKay as a MN to carry on a family name if this baby is a girl. The boy name we have is just a random name we like but the MN is for my papa.



I just hate how much they are all stressing me out about this, it's a stupid thing to get so pissy about. I kind of hope this is a girl more than a boy now just because of all this drama surrounding it. :?

Oh God, people will get over it, don't let them get to your husband. Stick to what you want, you're going to resent the family for the rest of your life if your son has William in his name lol.

They won't settle for it being a MN it MUST be a first name.

Meh you are the one who fills out the birth certificate. Just ignore them and when the time comes name your kid what YOU want.

I went through this with my DD. my MIL wanted her middle name to be Sue after her Kylie Sue. I said heck no. And then they tried to tell my DH he needs a DNA test. Because it couldn't be his baby. Lol. Ya, they're crazy! Exactly why I said heck no.



I'm sure with time they will get over it. If not oh well. It's y'all's baby. Not theirs!

I fully plan on it, but I know how pissy everyone will get. It's just stupid. It's a f**king child, be happy it's coming into the world, who gives a shit about some random tradition.

Tell them if its that important, to get busy and make their own baby... That's just ridiculous I'd tell them to F off.

Sounds like they need to go make their own baby. They has their turn at naming kids when they had theirs. This is YOUR child. If you don't like William, don't give in!

Its YOUR child not theirs! I understand its a tradition but its your decision! My fil didn't want us to use the name we did for DS he didn't like the first or middle name! I told them Im sorry but no Im not changing it just bc you don't like it! And I didn't change it his name is what we wanted! This time around Im not telling anyone the name intill the baby is born bc I don't wanna hear anyones mouth!
