    Is this fair?! Help!

    We finally decided on the name for our third baby boy (due in July )

    Wayland Luke Shaw.

    We were so excited about it, but when my husband revealed the name to his mom (last night), she said absolutely not, we CAN NOT name our son that. Now we don't really know what to do. She said the same thing for our son Whit but after we wrote it on the BC. We don't regret his name in the least bit but we know she still carrie resentment for it. We are both really angry and confused.
    Do we need to listen to her? What should I say to her? Help, please!!!!!

    Did she give any reason besides just not liking Wayland and Whitney?

    Yes! I forgot to add that in, sorry. She said that Whit would be made fun of for having a 'girly' name. She hates Wayland because it sounds "WIERD" to her.

    You do not need to listen to her. Not her baby, not her decision. I would be tempted to tell her off for being rude and presumptuous, but I'm sure there's a more diplomatic, though still firm, way to respond.
