It’s me Bluebonnet, [name]Gigi[/name]'s mom.
This is a true story. My husband’s ex-wife knows what we intend on naming our daughter - [name]Ginger[/name] [name]Grace[/name].
Well guess what her new cat’s name is? [name]Ginger[/name]. All the regulars here know who I am and that [name]Ginger[/name] [name]Grace[/name] is my favorite name.
We are in a major custody battle with the ex-wife. So please don’t suggest we ask her to reconsider. She did this with ill intent to alienate us and new sister from my step-sons life. We only have email communication with her. There is no sensibility there. Only sickness. My step-son is worried about this and worried it will hurt me as he knows the games she plays.
I know this sounds like the most ridiculous thing. I don’t even know who to vent to. My husband and family have said that if I change now I will be letting her win. But now my step-son will have a cat at mom’s and a sister at dad’s with the same name. My mom and husband are trying to down-play saying its not a big deal.
Not a big deal? I guess I’m blogging this to the Berries because only you all understand that naming is a big deal! My only other favorite name, [name]Gemma[/name], turns out to be a very famous porn star in the UK ([name]Gemma[/name] M-----) you can google her. [name]Do[/name] you guys remember that drama I had a few months ago?
I am now faced with picking the [name]Ginger[/name] the [name]Cat[/name] name. Or going with a name I half-way like and that is 3rd/4th down on my list. Names I like, just don’t “love”.
[name]Gigi[/name] [name]Louise[/name] - what if i just named her [name]Gigi[/name]? We plan on calling her this anyway. [name]Louise[/name] is the only other family name I want to use. Does [name]Gigi[/name] have any kind of meaning? It comes up as a nickname online.
I’m very worried that I will end up like one of the posters that has name remorse any way I go about it. None of my family really understands. I have loved the name [name]Ginger[/name] since I was a little girl. Other names I love don’t start with G and we already call her [name]Gigi[/name].
The monogrammed towels have been ordered. Her nickname [name]Gigi[/name] is up on the wall. I’ve bought all the Origins [name]Ginger[/name] products for her bathroom. I’m trying not to really get upset. I’ve got 6 weeks to go and was finally settled with the naming.
Does anyone have advice.
