Since I got pregnant with my first child in 2001 we did the baby names thing and we had a girl so we never used to boy name, obviously. For a boy I picked Tristen and DH picked Tyler. So, hubby said since I carry the baby we can put the name I picked first. I love the name Tristen Tyler! I have always wanted to use it but I have only had girls.
I am pregnant again, and we are going to wait until the baby is born to find out what it is and I would love to use the name.
I was discussing this with my SIL. She seemed concerned. Her cousin (DHs cousin as well) had a baby in 2008 that died at birth and she named him Tyler. SIL said if it were her she would be mad and hurt if we named our boy Tristen Tyler. We had no idea that she (cousin) had picked that name for her son.
I sent cousin an e-mail on facebook telling her about the conversation me and SIL had. She responded with... "What she said is true. And I have been thinking about it since we spoke yesterday. But honestly I would never want u guys to give up the name u want for ur baby. Tyler is a good name. So yes it will hurt a little, but I will b fine. I think Tristen Tyler is a good name."
I never want to hurt ANYONE because of what I name my baby. I lost a baby when she was 3 months and if someone in the family named their baby what they wanted even if it happened to be the name I had for my little angel I would not be upset. BUT, his sid of the family is very different...
She said she would be hurt and the SIL said she would be hurtnad upset if it were her and then of couse we have the MIL and the cousins mom on his side. (His aunt).
So, the question is (finally), should we still use the name we have picked out for the last 10 years, or do we find a new middle name?
