Baby Naming Drama!!!?
The names that they chose reflect their heritage, however I find it extremely rude, for them to not consider my heritage as well. I think it's enough that the baby will have their last name, now he/she would have to have an old name from their country of origin as well?! Are you kidding me? What about my heritage? Perhaps, I want to name my future child after my mother, or father or grandparents. So, right away, they insisted that we name our future child (if it's a boy) after my husband's grandpa, which is fine with me, but I wanted to use the Italian version of that name (since my grandma was Italian!). And then, when my husband told them the name I liked, they had these sour faces, and were asking me "what kind of name is that, how do you spell it?". I'm thinking to myself "Does it matter really? It's not your decision anyway!" I'm afraid they will influence my husband, and this will create conflict. Lately, I've been trying to avoid as much drama and stress from my life, and I feel like my in-laws are really getting on my nerves. In case, they are persistent with the whole baby-naming thing, how should I handle the situation without blowing up, and saying something to them that I will regret later?
