Baby Name Poll
Naming vs. Controversy vs. Help!
I am expecting my first baby, a daughter, in March. I was adopted when I was 6. My mother was struggling with addiction and was in and out my whole childhood. Now, she is sober and we have a good relationship, but I am extremely close to my adoptive mother, who was always there for me. I was planning on naming my baby after my (adoptive) mom. My birth mother is really upset by this and it’s putting a strain on our fragile relationship. Should I keep the name I picked, change the name so it honors my birthmother, or change it so it doesn’t honor anybody? Advice please! Thank you
