phooey (270.5 days ago) I`d use it even if it were a first name! it`s respecting and honoring his family BY using it. I agree with everything all the other ladies are saying.
emmy (274.4 days ago) Use it when my grandma died me and 3 of my cousins all wanted her name (elizabeth) but 1 cousin ended up having 2 boys one has no kids and my other cousins bub is 2mnths older then mine so she won i would still have used it but it didnt go with the name we picked
Amanda Ann (275 days ago) Yup, use it. First come first served...and besides, it`s your baby not theirs to name.
over-the-moon for BLUE x3 (275.8 days ago) its not fair she can have it but you cant thats childish. My uncle died when i was 20 so at 24 when i was pregnant i wanted to name my son after him, i had the first baby and got to use the name...turns out my brother told me it was his plan to do that as well....4 years later he still hasnt had a baby, boy or girl and no one is upset i used the name...if he had a baby first and used it as a first name id use it as a middle name...i also dont see why it would matter if you use it as a middle name go for it
julz (275.9 days ago) I come from a large family and alot of us have the same middle names, I think there are at least 4 of us that have the middle name Elizabeth (which happens to be my mom`s name) and I know a bunch of my cousins have the middle name Marie...no biggie. I say use it!! It`s not like your SIL can`t still use it as her baby`s middle name if she is blessed with a baby girl. Use the name!! Your family will get over it!!
MommyOf3But4ToBe (*PINK*) (276.1 days ago) I say go for it... YOU and YOUR hubs have your own family to really worry about now, whether his sister has kids is not an issue... you are having a little girl, it means the world to your husband, i would give the little one her great grandmas name, they will either get over it or they won`t, but you and your hubs will forever regret not giving her the name...
KR (276.2 days ago) Psssh! Use it! Im not sure why the family is having such an issue with it. Something like this is sooo common in families. If its being used as a middle name, and its after a grandmother.. its super common. In most families several or more than one child would have it used some how. Plus, whos to say their child/children wuld be girls any how. They may have just one boy (if their having troubles TTC) or 2+ boys. Then it would have gone to *waste* i say use it.. it might be this years news, but later they will get over it. How often are middle names used anyways unless on government I.D.
Chriscadia (276.3 days ago) Ok, I voted before I read the comments. If the name is just the middle name GO FOR IT! If your sister in law has a daughter she can use the name as well, why not she`s your baby :)
angie2008 (276.5 days ago) Hi there, use the name you want for your baby even more so because it`s a special family name. If you don`t you will regret it. And you are only using it for a middle name.
2babiesforme (276.5 days ago) Oh the drama! Its YOUR child, YOUR decision on a name, and anyone that doesn`t support it has to GOOOO! Its that simple - sometimes I wish we could use muzzles on people when they have negative opinions! USE IT MAMA!
lisseo (276.5 days ago) It depends on the situation. In your situation, I would go ahead and use it. Honestly, its a middle name. When do you use middle names besides when scolding your kids? Its really no big deal
a.love::k.alexander (276.6 days ago) I don`t see why it`s a problem since you`re going to use it as a middle name so she more than likely won`t go by it. My moms grandfathers name was Adolfo and 6 of her cousins have Adolfo as a middle or first name.
rolandsmommy (276.7 days ago) Hey! My sister and I did that! LOL! We are both pregnant at the same time. We wanted to use my Grandmother`s name as our child`s middle name. Well, it came down to a race. My baby is due first, if he were a girl I would have `won` the honor. Nope. Boy. Her ultrasound scan day came...girl! Ugh! She wins. That`s just how it works. I might STILL use it for a little girl if I ever have another one. But that`s the thing. I may NEVER have another baby (lucky enough to have the two we have!) and if we did, no guarantees says I will ever have another girl. So.....that`s the way the cookie crumbles. I picked no on your poll before I read the comment. In this situation it is first come, first serve. I know another family where the uncle molested and abused several family members (children) and a cousin he never touched or abused liked him and named her son after him. THAT was the type of situation I was thinking. It was very hurtful to her sister who he abused. Very.
MommyLH (276.7 days ago) The name is my husbands grandmother`s name. We want to carry on through our daughter who is due real soon. His family says no we cannot because he has a sister who has the same hopes to name her child after the grandmother. I was all fine and dandy with that until my husband told me his sister is unable to have kids. We just want the name for a middle name, and it is very important to my husband. He is not sure what to do at this point, go with them or against their wishes.
