I am going to be a grandmother for the first time in May. I am thrilled about the uncoming birth of my grandson (We know it's a boy) My problem??? The name!! No matter how I've tried to look at it I don't like it. Trust me, that's putting it mildly. I'd wanted to pass out little seed packet birth announcments at work when the baby was born, and quite honestly, I'm terrbily embarrased by his name. It sounds like something off of Zena!
She had asked me early in the pregnacy to help her with baby names.....so I did. She hasn't liked any of them....she has picked out his first name strickly because of the meaning (she's in the Army...means little warrior or something) and I've told her no one hears the name and says "oh that means little warrior" LOL
I have a great relationship with my daughter, I've expressed myself "kindly" and haven't told her how much I dislike the name.....just that it's unusual, but she does know I don't care for it (I didn't have the heart to tell her just how much) . She seems to have her mind made up and I feel sick about this name. I think the child will have a hard time as time goes by....also, it sounds very ethnic and she's a blue eyed fair skinned young lady. It just doesn't match!!
I know I've got no say in this......and I'm so serious when I say I'm afraid I'll never even say the babies name! I don't just dislike it I can't stand it!! Please, someone put me on a path of exceptance or tell me how I can deal with pleasing her and pleasing me. I know my place, so I don't really need to hear that's it's none of my business! I've just never had to deal with such a struggle before......no one else in the family knows that name yet as she's saving it as a "surprise" Trust me, they will be!!!
