How to Avoid Unwanted Opinions
Q. Help! My in-laws reject and pooh-pooh every name my husband and I suggest before we've even finished speaking. Do I have to tell them what our son's name will be?
A. Many couples don't divulge their child's name until after the baby is born and the ink on the birth certificate has dried. Decide on a name together with your husband, and present a united front to your in-laws. What you and your partner decide to name the baby is up to the two of you. You are not obligated to explain your choice, only to love it.
