MIL tattooed DS's name...
281

dilterry · 29/06/2022 13:36

... We have just had a baby, 2 weeks ago, MIL immediately tattooed baby boys name on her arm.

However, we have since had a change of heart re the name... What a nightmare!

We didnt ask her to, or knew she was doing it, it's obviously really sweet of her to do it so that's not the problem it's more just now we dont want to call him that.

I feel awful! How on earth do we handle this? I'm really trying to talk myself into keeping the name, but it doesnt sit right...

Can you use that as the middle name so she can just add the "new" first name to the front?

It's really not your problem, to be honest. It was entirely hwr decision, and not something most people would do. Youre entirely within your rights to change your minds, it's still very early days and you're only getting to know him.

Oh yikes. Perhaps she should have waited until you registered baby....

Erm... can you live with that name or does it just really not work?

I agree with suggestion to keep it as a middle name- you liked it enough so maybe it will work better as a middle? She could then add his name to the tattoo. To be honest she was a bit premature to do it after only 2 weeks but I definitely would not want to upset my MIL so Iโ€™d try to find a compromise.

No way would I keep a name I didn't actually want to use because someone had decided to tattoo it on their body.

Use the name you like.
She can have laser removal or a cover up.

She's daft for doing it so quickly, she could have waited. He's your son so if you prefer a different name then go for it.

That's so funny!

Can I be there when you tell her you're changing his name? I'll bring some nice biscuits.

If you want to change his name then do so. It's not your fault she rushed out and had it (weirdly) tattooed onto her body. He's your baby and his name will be his for life. She can get her tattoo altered or use that name as a middle one but only if you want to x

Frankly it's working quite well already ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

@dilterry I'm struggling to believe this actually, but if it's true, it's her problem, not yours. You can't give your child a name you no longer like, simply to avoid upsetting some loon who got a tattoo done!

Best suggestion so far!!!

@dilterry she can do this or have it incorporated into another 'design'. Whatever she does is up to her, she charged ahead getting inked, her problem, not yours!!

Hahaha it is slightly funny, but i also just feel so bad for her.

The name absolutely doesn't work especially as my dd pointed out it sounds like a certain body part that is less than ideal.

Even as a middle name isnt really an option but we would keep it for her i guess, just not as a first name.
