She Mail: Baby Name Family Feud
Julie Fisk is here to help. If you’ve need advice or want us to hash out a problem on the air for you, let Julie share some of her wisdom.
I’m pregnant with my 3rd child and it’s going to be my last one. I’m the youngest in my family so this will be the last grandchild as well, but no one has used the family name. WILLIAM is my father’s middle name and his father’s middle name and pretty much everyone in my extended family has a WILLIAM. Well, my brother had 2 girls and couldn’t use it and I didn’t use it for my other son. I AM having a boy so this will be the last chance for us to use WILLIAM but my husband really doesn’t want to. Everyone on my side of the family has kind of assumed that we’ll use the name, but I’m not really a fan of it either.
I’m feeling all kinds of pressure and WOULD use WILLIAM as a middle name just so everyone would back off, but my husband is adamant that he doesn’t want to use the name.
So what do I do?
Will.i.am NOT gonna name my kid William
Dear Will.i.am NOT gonna name my kid William,
I think everyone goes through some sort of baby-naming-drama when they have kids, but the decision of your baby’s name ultimately lies with YOU. If you and your husband do not want to use the name William, you absolutely do not have to. That said, there’s nothing wrong with giving your kid 2 middle names. That way you can use William, but still use the names you like. If every kid on the Disney Channel can have 5 names, why can’t your baby boy?!
