Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Your husband should put his foot down since they are his family. He needs to tell them that you guys gave the name you wanted her to have and if they can't be grown up enough to get over themselves then maybe they don't need to see her. I hope you get it all worked out! :)

have you and your husband sit down with them! Man this would make me so mad lol... Keep telling them that its not her name.. you would appricate it if they could call their grand daughter by her name... i wouldnt care if they got mad at all it is your child! good luck though hope everything works out

I would keep reminding them that this is the name you & your husband decided to use & that they had their chances to name their children. Your husband should have a long hard talk with them. If nothing works, as bad as it may be & sounds, maybe the best thing to do would be to keep her away for awhile. Its going to confuse your daughter if they keep it up.
