When my husband and I found out that we are pregnant I didn't want to tell anyone the name we picked because I didn't want to hear anyone's negative comments and I figured that once the baby was born no one would vocalize their negative comments to us. I couldn't keep it in though, so we told people and for the most part everyone told us how much they love the name, but my husband told me the other day that his (step)grandma expressed to him how she doesn't like the nickname we picked. My husband told her not to tell me because he knew how I would feel about it. But now she is specifically calling her a different nickname in posts on facebook. I feel that she should just call her by her given name then if she doesn't like our nickname. Is it wrong that I'm offended that she seems to be going out of her way to call her by anything other than the name/nickname we picked? And it's not even that I hate the nickname she uses...

Ignore her. My cousin and her husband named their son Ender after a Sci-fi book hero. In the book Ender's real name was Andrew so my Aunt and Uncle insisted on calling him Andrew. Everyone else called him Ender so eventually they came around.
Plus, you know even though you're offended and it does seems deliberate, Grand parents often have special nicknames for their grand children; tiger, princess etc., and vice versa.
What's the name?
