So, my mother wanted me to give my baby my deceased uncle's first name as a middle name. His (my uncles) daughter is having a child in February and she's giving her child her dad's first name as her baby's middle name. I told her I don't feel comfortable naming my kid after him. Yes, I loved him very much and he was my favorite uncle, but I don't want my kid having the same middle name as my cousins kid. Also, I just don't want that to be my kids name in any way at all! My mother gets all pissy about it, but I'm like it's my damned kid. She had her children and got the oppurtunity to name each and every one whatever she saw fit! I am sooo glad she will be moving to Arizona in February and won't be around for the birth of my baby. Even after I told her, no; I'm not into that name for my kid. She keeps trying to pressure me into it by saying, "but you love your uncle" okay, yes I do, but I don't love his name and that's final! I'm ready for all hell to break loose in July when I do finally give birth because I already know its coming. She's trying to control my fucking pregnancy and I'm ready to just kill that woman already. I can't stress enough how happy I am that she's leaving. I understand she's excited for her first grandchild, but hello!-This is my first kid, and even if it were my 10th child, it's mine therefore I have the right to name it whatever I see fit! She's such a damn control freak! AY! Sorry for the rant, I'm just so fed up.
