We’re thinking of using my Grandmother’s name [name]Nola[/name] if our baby is a girl. Not only does it have the family connection, but it’s a nice balance of unusual but not too weird, and easy to spell and pronounce. The downside is, well, Grandmother [name]Nola[/name] wasn’t always the nicest lady and she and my mother didn’t have a great relationship, so I worry that my mother will have a hard time with the name and/or the baby.
I don’t want to ask directly because we want to keep the possible names secret and I am certain that my mother would not say what she really thinks even if I did ask.
Surely someone’s been through this one before? Thanks!
