Am I over reacting for not wanting to name my child after my husbands ex?

So my husband and his family says that I’m over reacting by refusing to name my daughter Diana. Which is her great grandmothers name. But it’s all my oldest two kids mothers middle name. So yeah I’d rather not name my kid after my husbands ex and I’m more mad he didn’t say anything. We’ve had the name picked for months and it wasn’t until my kids asked their mom what her full name was is when I found out.

Yeah that whole thing sounds weird. You two decide together what the name is. Not him and his family - excluding you??? Thays just weird and creepy.

In most states the mother chooses the name she filled out the paperwork and signs it

I found out when I was 13 I was named after my dads highschool sweetheart. I’m still mad about it and I feel like it was total disrespect to my mom. Name your child what you want to name her. She’s yours. Congrats momma❤

My mother in law’s name was Diana. :purple_heart:

So wait you liked the name before? It’s just a name and if you like it who cares if it’s his EX middle name, it’s not like it’s her first name. Name your baby Diana it’s a pretty name.

I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t name my kids anything close to or made me think of my husbands ex. Of course my mom wasn’t thrilled I didn’t give my daughter my middle name and carry on tradition, but I didn’t like that name either. They’ll get over it. You and your husband pick out a name and tell everyone after you fill out the birth certificate paperwork. Then they can hate it all they want but can’t push you into changing it.

Who the hell even names a baby Diana?! I’ve never ever once seen a baby names Diana. I think they just spawn as grown women already or something.
