Yeah my MILs name is Athol (like Ethel but slightly different, and with the a sound not the eh). So that's a hard pass from me... but we did use family names as middle names.

We had 2 boys oldest son has father in law's name as his middle name youngest has my dad's name as his middle name. I think our idea was good it acknowledges both families.

Generally I see nothing wrong with using family names, but those are pretty awful names. Maybe you could compromise and use one as a middle name?

Used mil middle name for my daughters middle name and I regret it every day. Wish I gave her her own middle name.

ANSWER

Only if the particular in-law is dead. If i want to honour someone, it will be because they aren't around to receive it in person. Besides, I am sure the "must be dead" element might have particular appeal if the MIL is unpleasant.

Can't the kids have their own names?

You have the final say in this, you are the one who carries them in your womb.

Being the one who carries them does not mean a final say. Your kids are half your partners too. Parenting is 50:50 and it begins with naming your child.

Well then, you should be the one who pays for them. And cares for them on your own. Seeing as you had the stitches and all 🙄

Cheers mate. I do. I work, I support my children and partner. He works and supports us too: he has for many years. He is also a beautiful Human being. Better than you could ever wish for. He knows when it comes to parenthood mothers have a way harder grind. I love how he respects women, how he respects what we go through to raise a child.
So yes. That respectful mother fucker supports my parenting decisions. And i respect and love him for it.

^how do i not respect him?
He is in no way a doormat.
I suspect you are a touch jealous because you can't speak as highly of your partner. If you have one 😛

What trash. It’s 50/50 in the eyes of the law and not only that it should be a joint choice anyway. Get off you high trashy horse. With a mouth like that, you’re foul!

Your suspicions are incorrect. I have a husband and parenting including the naming of our children we do together. So either your partner is a doormat or he just doesn’t give a fuck.

Funny how you make assumptions about a man you don't know. He's more of a man than your poofy little cunt of a husband. Go get some cock up ya, ya fat mole. It might loosen you up so you're not such a miserable fat fuckin sow.

Actually legally mum gets the final say. You can send off the birth certificate without him signing it, he can't send it without you signing it. I know because I have been through this.

You don’t but unless you dont want your child’s father to be a part of their life why wouldn’t you?

It has nothing to do with the child seeing their dad, if you can't agree on a name you can simply fill out the forms and send them in. Dad can be added later. I had to do this because of an unreasonable name after family member demand.

Yes, so is getting legal advice on how to force your wife,/ dil to let you have the name of your choice. So I got legal advice too and was told to just name the child, and let them take me to court, because they won't win. I used the family name as a middle name so it's still there, but I also used one of my family names as the middle name just to say f you.

To each their own but I wouldn't name my kids after my parents so why would I name them after hubbys? Middle names maybe. My husband was named after his uncle and they have identity issues all the time.

ANSWER

Hell no! I couldn't bear being reminded of my sour, rude & interfering in laws every time I looked at my children. They're back from a 3 month holiday tomorrow & I can already feel my mental health declining. I've been so happy without them around.

Besides, in our families there would have been offence at the other family's name being used & we'd then have to use a name from the other side for second child even if we hated the few choices & someone would always be unhappy anyway. It's too exhausting so fresh names it was!

ANSWER

We chose middle names that were family names. Personally I prefer them to have their own first names.

I wouldn't name my child after anyone because i think it's important to their emotional wellbeing that they feel like they have their own identity & not have to live up to a namesake. I have a pet hate for Juniors. I think it's clearly all about puffing up Senior chest & making them feel good but what about poor Junior - he wasn't even important enough to get his on name.

I agree, they need their own name. They already inherit a surname so why the other names?!
When I hear parents giving their children inherited names I snort. It's ridiculous.

You both have to agree on the names. Our son has Thomas as a middle name which has been past down the generations on his father's side, but our daughter was named purely by what we liked, though many years later whilst doing family tree, we discovered that her gg grandmother had the same names. Also remember your child are the ones that live with these names.


ANSWER

We gave our daughter the grandmothers on each sides name.
If his mum was amazing yes, if my parents had names that went with the name yes.
My dads middle name probably would have been used as a nod to him.
If we had another daughter, maybe I’d consider her and my mums name even though they aren’t very nice, it’s a middle name who cares

His dad? Fuck no, he isn’t a good enough human being.

You need a compromise as they are his kids as much as yours. What about having one or both as middle names? Our son’s middle name has my late father’s name. And our daughter has my husband’s late aunty’s name. My own middle name is that of my mum’s best friend who was killed just before I was born and that name I carry with pride. I hope my children will feel the same about theirs when they are old enough to know what their name means.

Our 2 boys aren't named after anyone on either side of the family. I'm not against naming kids after family, it just didn't happen for us. No one expected it though, so no one is salty about it, so that's good.
