I have a childhood friend who was babysat by my sister. She's had her first little girl and is about to deliver her second.

My sisters name was Ashley Nichole and she named her youngest one Daleigh Nichole.

Her mother called the other day when we found out it was going to be a girl and told me that her daughter was thinking of naming her little girl (for my sister) Madison Nichole.

My question would be: How do I ask her nicely not to do that? I know that it's not like I have control over that name or anything. But there is already one little girl named for her. ( That is my sisters daughter). I would really rather her not name her little girl that.

And advice?

No it is not your business what she names her kid. If she wants to use that name let her. I don't see the big deal. Brian had a friend named Ian and we named our son Ian. We do not allow people to dictate anything that mundane to us. I don't think anything you say she will react postively to.

Honestly, I don't think it's a big deal. First, it's only a middle name and she's not an immediate family member. JMO.

I really don't think that it's bothering me that she is using the name. It's more like the way she called and her mother told me and that she was using it so that she would be linked to my sister when my sister's little girl already has that name. I just don't think it is something that my sister would have liked. And my mother isn't to happy about it either. I mean those little girls won't be but about 2 years apart. And I 've no idea what she's going to call her.

I know that it's not that big of a deal, when you get down to the basics. She is like an immidate family member. I hate that too.. But it'll be alright.

Thanks for the input.
