So, my MIL never changed our twins diapers when they were little, she always handed them off to me.When they are sick, she doesn't even call (We live next door). She really doesn't want anything to do with them, I walk them over to see her. She came up to me and asked if the baby could be named after her. I giggled, till I realized she was being serious... Thankfully, my Dh changed the subject.We already decided to name the baby after my Dad, who died,and Dh's grandparents ( her parents pretty much raised Dh). I don't know what to say if she asks again.

Wow, Just tell her you already have names picked out. My mom's the same way.. she lives just down the hill and complains that she never gets to do anything with dd but then whenever she's offered she's "busy". Good Luck

What nerve to ask if you'd name your baby after her? I don't care who you are - that is just plain rude! Diplomatically, I agree that just telling her you already have names picked out is the easiest way to keep the peace.

What nerve! And even if you were really close, I can't imagine a world where it would be polite to ask someone to name their baby after you.

My MIL seems to think I should use her middle name, too. I kinda like Elizabeth, but I'm not going to use it simply because it's her name. She ran off and left my DH when he was a kid so many times to be with men and would always come running back. DEFINITELY NOT going to name my child after her!!!

I agree with the just saying you have other names picked out... maybe it will help keep the peace.

Wow! I can't believe that! She is definately nervey. I agree, tell her you already have names picked out. If you don't already I would do it fast in case she asks what they are!

It amazes me what some people think is appropriate behavior. Hopefully she will realize by your reaction that she was in the wrong and she won't ask again.

WOw. How rude!!! Just keep repeating yourself! My SO's mom always has her list of names to push on us. I just always said you had your chance to choice your children's names, now it is my turn!

I agree how rude to ASK you!
That's not something you ask to do. It's something the parents of the child offer to do if they want to.
I named dd after my mom and a friend.
Kay from my mom and Leigh from a friend. (kayleigh)
Her middle name is dawn. After my ex sister in law.
I chose the names and once I chose, we told each of the ppl we used to name them after.
I love that my dd has my mom and her aunts names in her name.
But it was our choice. . No one asked. Lol

I would have probably laughed too if my MILs said something like that to me . . . that is just ridiculous.

Dude MIL regularly suggests her name as well as every other family name under the sun. Even names we picked out by ourselves amazingly is some long lost relative's name. Seriously? Shut up! I don't care about your great uncle's second cousin. They mean nothing to me and it's definitely NOT because of them I am naming my child this particular name. Drives me bonkers!

My mother is the same way towards my children from my second marriage. Could give a rat's arse less.

So, my last pregnancy, she BOLDLY says "My ***** name BETTER be in there somewhere."

I had a boy...!

Don't even get me started on the rudeness of MILs...

If she continues to bring it up, just pick a sentance and parrot it back to her. "Thank you for the suggestion (MIL), but we've already picked out the names we plan use." If she keeps getting the same response, over and over again, either you're on constant repeat, or she gets tired of hearing it and gets a clue.
