The problem is not with me, nor my husband. But my father-in-law. He mentioned today that if my second child is born a girl, and we don’t name her [name]Maria[/name] (like my mother-in-law), then he would be finished with us. As in, he would not talk to us anymore. [name]Said[/name] this to us today, on our 3rd wedding anniversary :(. What a difficult day!
See, my mother-in-law is no longer with us. And I never met her before she died. I’ve only heard nice things about her. I like the name [name]Maria[/name] and all, but there are [name]WAY[/name] [name]WAY[/name] [name]WAY[/name] too many with that name. And anyway, we’ve decided on the name [name]Phoebe[/name], if it’s a girl. We have a 2 year-old named [name]Jarod[/name] [name]Zeno[/name]. (I’ve posted before about trying to get sibling names for my son…still trying to decide on a boy name).
Anyway, my FIL has had so much trouble saying our son’s name. For the main reason that it’s not an Italian name (and we’re living in [name]Italy[/name] right now). He doesn’t even attempt to say it correctly (like so many others do) and calls him [name]Jerry[/name] and I get so pissed, like I did today.
Sorry for the long post. [name]Just[/name] feeling so stressed right now. My FIL is being really unreasonable and unfair.
What do you guys think? I really like the name [name]Phoebe[/name] for a girl. Need a middle name. Was thinking of [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Nora[/name]. For a boy…I’m considering [name]Brendan[/name], [name]Ethan[/name], [name]Ian[/name]. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, as always. Thanks.
