Disagreement over baby name, chosen by partners mum
My son is 2 months old and me and his dad had picked a name for him befote he was born. After the delivery baby's dad found out that his mum was due to undergo a serious heart operation. He messaged me when I was still at the hospital to say that his mum will choose our son's name but, since I liked the name we had picked, we can keep it as his 2nd name. To say I was upset and angry is an understatement. I did, however give it a chance thinking that I might eventually like her choice. I hated it with a passion. So, as it stands, we agreed to keep the original name as his first, mum's choice as his second. The problem is that my partner and his family use the second name to address my son. I thought I might get used to it but the truth is I hate it. On days like today, when I feel down, itirritates me so much that I just want to leave the room so that I don't have to listen to it. I just wanted to gather your thoughts and get some advice. Has any other mum been in a similar situation?
