Family Upset W Name

Carah - October 21

I am due in Feb. 06 and we are having a boy however I want to name him (his middle name) after my dad. I am worried my mother in law will get upset that I am not naming the baby after any part of my father in law's name. Is that a dumb thing to be worried about? Should I name the baby after both to be fair?

You'll be fine. I felt better with the rational that my baby would have my husband's last name and would share something with my FIL.

I named my daughters middle name after my dad..his name is Michael, but I gave her the feminine...Michelle. My husband likes it..

I chose my step dads middle name if it turns out we are having a boy and my dad wasnt mad at all. If they get upset over things like that then they have a problem not you. They should just be happy about the baby even if you name it baby boy.

I think kr has a brilliant point..The baby will carry your father in law's last name and your dad's first name. That seems very fair and reasonable. If your son doesn't have the same last name as father in law, then you could always say that you will choose a name on their side, for your next child..But really it is all up to you and one else really.

Thanks ladies for your responses. I thought the same thing that maybe my father in law would just be happy his lastname is getting pa__sed down. Well we will see what happens but as of now my mother in law tells everybody the first name but won't mention his middle name. Thanks again.
