Baby Name Poll Results
Receiving vs. No vs. Help!
Hello all! I am expecting our first little girl and need help. My mother-in-law is pushing and pushing for the name Sophia; and my issue with the name is that it is the name of my husband’s ex-wife which I think is pretty self explanatory of why I dislike the name and don’t want to use it. Because she always calling my belly "Sophia" whenever she sees us I haven’t even been able to think of any other names and now at a total loss. We have a two year old son named Landon, what names do you think would fit well with that? Thanks & happy holidays! ~Marie
The Top Baby Name is...
I like Emma, Charlotte, Audrey, Eliza, Ella, Amelie, and Natalie! Also, to be honest, I hate all names that are unisex, misspelled, and too trendy--hope that helps!
I like Audrey, Ava, Geneva, and Ivy! Lily is nice too but I don’t want to do same letters for my kids
What an assuming cow! Sorry but that would get my blood boiling.
Onto names; Sophia is way too popular and thats all you need to tell mil!
Lilia ( just seen this name on a birth announcement on here and think its beautiful)
Primrose (love nn prim)
She seriously needs to stop doing that, what you two name your child really isn’t her business!
Landon has kind of a country sound to it maybe? I’d suggest:
I like Ellie and Penny! I like a few others but they’re L names which I don’t want to do. Also, please make sure to read my comments (not sure if some had seen them) because they contain information about what I do/do not like or want!
It’s very annoying and my husband is out of town for a while which doesn’t really help (MIL really doesn’t like me, if it were up to her, my husband would still be married to his ex).
I like Clara, Alice, Daisy, Poppy, Ruby, and Tallulah! I find it somewhat funny that you think Landon’s name has a country feel to it since we are about the furthest thing from country people!
I really love Emma and Audrey, those were great suggestions! What do you think of Claire, Abigail, Emily, or Gabrielle? Good luck with this baby, what your MIL is doing is screwed up.
We can’t use Abigail or Gabrielle and Claire & Emily are a bit ho-hum to me. Sorry! And thank you!
I like Millie, Emme, Penelope, Willa, and Ada!
I just want to say sorry in advance if I fall behind on responses! My computer is a bit slow tonight!
Tell the MIL that she needs to BACK OFF, and make it VERY clear to her that you ARE NOT GOING TO NAME YOUR KID SOPHIA. Tell her why, and tell her if she doesn’t like the decision that you are making for your daughters name, then she doesn’t need to be saying anything about names, and you will just tell her what the baby’s name is after she is born. Tell her that you are the child’s mother, and if you do not feel comfortable with the way she is acting around you/the baby, then you will just not be around for her to see the baby after she is born. MIL’s are so dumb sometimes. They do all kinds of stupid crap to make the DIL, or SIL really mad, then they wonder why they are no longer invited to be around. SMH, and good luck.
I’m hoping that once my husband and I decide on a name (IF we decide on a name) that he can keep quiet about it. I know no matter what name we choose together she will not like it since I had a say in it and it’s not Sophia. My husband is a pretty big "momma’s boy" though so we’ll see! I hope it doesn’t have to get to the point where we have no contact with them (or at least her) for our son’s (and daughter’s) sake
No offense to your hubby, but he needs to cut the cord now. He needs to tell her that he has a family of his own now, and that even though he loves her, and wants to have contact with her, because she is his mother, that she needs to still respect the boundaries that comes with him having a family. He also needs to make it clear that even though she doesn’t like you, his wife, that she still has to be civil with you, and respect you, as his life partner, and the mother of her grandchildren. If she doesn’t respect your wishes, and the boundaries that comes with being a MIL and a grandma, then she just needs to stay away. Tell her that you don’t want that to end up being the case, but, respect is respect, and you all don’t feel like you’re getting it from her, then explain why. You can do all of this without saying it in a hurtful way, so then everyone leaves the conversation feeling like they were treated with dignity. Hope I helped!
I’m hoping to get through the holidays without having any major issues; my hormones have really been out of whack lately so I’m hoping that she won’t do anything that will accidentally push me over the edge and just lose it!
yep, sometimes those MIL’s just don’t get the hormones, and when pregnant momma loses it, there is no going back!! lol.
After having four children of her own, you’d think she’d understand too! She wasn’t really bad when I was pregnant with Landon (though I know she was unhappy when we announced his middle name) but once she found out we were having a girl it was like all hell broke loose! I understand that I’m not Sophia and I do not have the same background as her and I am not from the same hometown as them (that is how her and my husband met) but good God it’s been almost seven years you’d think she’d get over it by now!
She just better get over it if she keeps wanting contact with her grandkids. That is all I have to say about that.
I truly hope things don’t get to that point; I don’t want our children to suffer and my husband’s family to deal with it either
Landon and Daisy sound absolutely lovely together.
May I suggest
