This could be a first!

Okay, I know what kind of site I am on and I am very well aware of what is the norm to bloggers. BUT, I have been put into a spin on this. I am to be a "grannie" in October. My first grandbaby. Now, that is not the problem, well, not anymore. The problem is the baby's name. My daughter, who is not married to the father, and I have came up with a beautiful name for the child if it is a girl. The "father" of this child resented that I had anything to do with it. So, in spite, I believe, he says he is naming the baby, if it is a boy.....Damien. Ok, I am not one to judge but...isn't this earmarking this child for future ridicule? I mean when someone says the name Damien what do you all think of? "Damien, put the dog down, Damien!" It keeps resounding in my head! I am scared when I think about it. I just want to knock this little punk down and show him the evil that a granny can do upon him!!!

One would hope this can be resolved before the baby is born. Maybe those involved can remember it's about a little baby, and not about ego or winning ...

and I know I have it ez.... commenting from the outside on a situation I don't have all the information on

Jdohio, my daughter hates the name. She prefers another. I am not trying to be intrusive. If he wasn't such a "boy" and quit playing games with me I would be more suseptible to his suggestions. But, he is making it a competition. I don't care what they want. My daughter said the name as a joke and when I said I hated it, is when he decided that is the one he wants. So, you see what I am dealing with here!? LOL

I think that you are also treading on the fine line of being a caring Mom and an intrusive Mom. You didnt BLOG about what your daughter had to say about the name of her child. I hope that yhis will work out the best for everyone and I know that you are a level headed woman. Well most of the time, anyway! LOL. I know that I have some issues with my Mother in Law and if she started demanding things then it would be the end of any relationship that we do have. Good luck! Keep smiling!!

Well, Congratulations to you! I think Damien is a nice name, I don't even know about the "put the dog down" thing, so maybe other people won't think of that either. I hated the name my husband picked out for our first son, but now, it's so him, I wouldn't change for any other name that I might have thought was better.
