The mum-to-be, now eight months pregnant, explained that it was a tradition in his husband’s family to name the baby before they are born.
She explained: “ The name is embroidered onto a blanket that has been passed down from generation to generation, and the baby is wrapped in the blanket when it is born.
“I’m trying to come up with a name we both like, but some of the names he suggests do not resonate with me.”
The woman explained that her husband had become impatient telling her to just ‘pick a name’ admitting that he would like to name their daughter after his late grandmother Beatrice.
“I just don’t like it,” she confessed.
“I wanted to have a list of names so that when I see her I can name her after what I think is appropriate.
“Although it can sound odd, I wanted to see her before naming her but have decided not to so that he can please his family.”
The mum confessed that she would rather call the baby Jessica after her late sister but had chosen not to share it with her husband because he had insulted all of her previous suggestions.
She continued: “Today his mother was pressuring me to suggest a name, and I just blurted out the name Jessica.
“After a pause and a laugh, she said it was a name for a large girl, and it was a very unsuitable name.
“She went on to ask me if I wanted the baby to be ugly and if I was trying to ruin its life before it was even born. Initially, I was overwhelmed with anger and asked her to stop talking, more harshly than I should of, as she didn’t have the right to imply others are ugly when she herself is no Beyonce.”
In a bid to end the feuding, her sister-in-law came up with a name, telling the mum-to-be to call the child Connie after the dad’s mum.
Understandably this did not go down well, after being called ‘selfish’ by her husband the woman packed her bags and went to stay with her older sister.
She added: “I’ve also decided that I’m not telling his family when I go into labour, and if I must I am not allowing them anywhere near me while I’m birthing the child.”
Fellow Redditors were left outraged by her husband’s behaviour with the majority agreeing she was not an a**hole.
Commenting, one wrote: “Your husband and his family are incredibly toxic and entitled.”
“I hope you divorce him so you can ultimately divorce his entire family,” agreed another.
A third added: “Name the baby Jessica + your maiden name.”
