My family has decided that since this is my third child, they have some say in what my hubby and i name him. Not the typical blah blah is a cute name (like what happened with the first two), no it's your going to name him this or that or his nick-name will be this.
An example: my MIL says she doesn't care what the name is as long as it has an X and a Z (her favorite letters) and his nick-name will be Buddy.
I personally believe that the name and nick-name (until he's old enough to decide for himself) is solely the parents job and everyone else can go fuck off (which has been my additude of late). Please excuse the language. This is causing a lot of drama. i tried the diplomatic approach of 'That's an interesting name but i don't think it's for us. It didn't work. Whats worse, certain family members can't even be in the same room with each other (like my dad and FIL) because they will get into fights over what the name should be.
Hubby and I have had several names that were our favorites that cause so much drama within the family we went back "to the drawling board" just to get out of the fighting. I'm due in a month and we don't have a name yet. Any advise at all is appreciated.
Not sure if it matters but my first born's name is William Paul and my second born's name is Serenity Rei.

I'd just ignore them... not tell them any name choices and do whatever you are going to do!!! They have no say, so "F" them!! Or you could insist on some crazy, outlandish name just to feed the fire!! Either way screw them... when they carry a baby for 9 months they can have some say!!
