    Oh please…your mil needs to shut the eff up – it isn’t her place to say what you & your husbands baby name will be. I personally would NOT give into her bc then she will get her own way & she will just probably find another thing to complain about next as someone else has already said – she is being really maliputive & controlling about the whole thing – it’s like it has to be her way or no way at all. 

    Name your child whatever you want or definitely use your parents names like you had originally planned bee! 

    I voted: stick w/ original plan!

    Tell her if it’s a girl she gets her name from her mom’s side and if it’s a boy he will get his name from his dad side. Don’t know how she could argue with that. Since you already know it’s a girl, problem solved.

    At some point you have to stand your ground and not give in to emotional blackmail
