I am not sure where to post this, but I really could use some advice. My FIL and his wife are always mispelling my DD’s nn and it is really starting to make me mad.
My daughter is [name]Lilianna[/name] and her nn is generally [name]Lily[/name] (although we do use [name]Lil[/name] and other pet names for her). However, my FIL and his wife are always addressing everything to her as [name]Lili[/name]. Now, maybe this should not bother me so much, but we specifically rejected that spelling. Yes, her fn starts with “[name]Lili[/name]” but we thought that [name]Lily[/name] would have less issues with pronunciation and it was the only spelling that was likely to be placed on all the personalized name stuff.
Well, it’s not like they should not know by now. She is 21 months old and we sign her name as [name]Lily[/name] in all the cards, letters, emails, everything. We have also made subtle hints and when we first decided on the name we explained the spelling to them and again after she was born, yet they still mispell it. I am starting to take it personally because it seems like they are doing it intentionally. I feel like they are essentially telling me that I chose the wrong name. With [name]Christmas[/name] around the corner, what do you think I should do if all her gift tags once again say “[name]Lili[/name]”? Any suggestions are welcome as I am afraid I could potentially blow my top!
