But you don't want to use the same name. I'd feel the same.

That'd be a no, I think.

FWIW my DP's ex fiancé and Norge are both Cargerine - and I made it clear to him that I didn't want to use the name for that reason.

lol, i knew i wasnt lossing the plot!
how do i go about this then, its tradition to name the child after the grandparents!!!!

I think he lost the right to name his new baby after his mother when he cheated on you with someone else with the same name.

You are not being moany. Not sure why you're even discussing it. No, no and thrice, no!

If he can't see why then he is a total dick.

Do the grandparents to be know about the fling? If they do then its totally acceptable imo to tell them the real reason.

yes, I second to telling them if you are bucking with tradition and they are not satisfied with any old bollocks you tell them.

How about Catherine as a middle name? I don't think I would mind that as middle names are never used really.

Can you not name her after your mum? Why do you have to use his mothers name?

cath100 Thu 05-May-11 21:05:35

molly you are soooooooo right, grandparents do know, but they cant see what myproblem is with the name.

trying to be 'inclusive' but this is just silly!

MollysChamber Thu 05-May-11 21:10:07

Put your foot down. You have every right too.

Melly19MummyToBe Thu 05-May-11 21:10:48

Or why do you even need to name the baby after grandparents anyway? What if you hated both of your mothers names??

UrsulaBuffay Thu 05-May-11 21:11:40

It's a fucking ridiculous idea & that's the end of it.

SamsGoldilocks Thu 05-May-11 21:12:27

just tell him when the baby is born that ' Talullah Princess girlypops' is just the most adorable baby you've ever seen and insist she can have no other name. At that point he will not be able to refuse you.

Disclaimer - perhaps not Tallulah Princess Girlypops really but.....

Melly19MummyToBe Thu 05-May-11 21:13:16

What if it's a boy?

MollysChamber Thu 05-May-11 21:18:07

If it's a boy you should name him after one of your exes wink

MollysChamber Thu 05-May-11 21:18:34

The best looking one grin

MelinaM Thu 05-May-11 21:27:15

I'm named after one of my father's affairs (in my mother's defence, the affair was a family friend and she knew nothing about it till I was 3!)

I have hated my name ever since I found this out!

Don't do it OP!

emmanumber3 Thu 05-May-11 23:05:56

Definitely no - no questions! Do you really want to be thinking of "the other woman" when using your precious baby's name?! Certainly not. In fact it's making me quite cross on your behalf that your hubby sees no problem angry.

Tallulah Princess Girlypops it is then grin.

Totally agree!! No way. I couldn't even have named our DD after any of my hubbie's exs, nevermind if the name in question was from an affair!! Is the woman in question ever likely to know your baby's full name? Not that it changes my opinion. Just curious!!Whatever the outcome, just enjoy your baby!!
