LOL! my MIL is like that, too. For a girl, me and my boyfriend chose Brooke Madison. My MIL was like, "why not Isabella? Isabella Madison, Brooke Isabella, Madison Isabella?" & I'm like, "For one, me nor Travis like the name. For two, my older sister gave up her daughter for adoption and that was her name. And for three, your niece's daughter is named Isabella!!!" And my boyfriend's dad is SET on us naming our son after him (if it ends up being a boy) Like, I don't have a problem doing so, but let it be mine and my boyfriend's choice! Jeez!

Don't let your MIL dictate what you name YOUR child.  She had her chance, this is your chance.

This is why we chose not to announce our name to anyone until he's born.

My mil was doing the same thing! If we were having a girl it was either Natalie Rose or Abigail Rose. And she hated both of those and kept telling us we should name it Miley Lee. Lee is her middle. No offense. But I absolutely HATE that name. It's not my problem if she had three boys. THANK GOD WE'RE HAVING A BOY!!! And it's Thomas John. Well she still thinks its not great. My older son picked Thomas and me and bf decided on John as it both our dads middle names.

Bottom line- it's YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND'S BABY. Not hers! I know you don't want to hurt his feelings just try to tell him how much it means to you or that the name has a significance to you. I think it's absolutely beautiful. Good luck Momma!!! :-)

I would name her what you want, but I think you should spell Justice right! :)

See Elaine is both of our mothers middle name so that was easy for us and Catherine.is my grandma name we choice that because she is not doing well at all and don't believe she will meet the baby. Justyce is the only girl name we liked or could agree on
