Woman Wants To Give Baby A Grammar Themed Name But Grandma Isn’t Having It 

Woman Wants To Give Baby A Grammar Themed Name But Grandma Isn’t Having It


A mum says she’s furious her mother-in-law is insisting she change her daughter’s name after choosing a grammar themed moniker.

Sharing her story to Subreddit, S**t Mom Groups Say, the mum was hoping to get some support for the unique name. In the post, she wrote:

My mother-in-law is giving me so much grief over our baby name choice. Please be honest on what you think? We chose Alphabeta Silver and plan on calling her Betty for short. We both love grammar and literature and instantly agreed when we heard the name and my MIL isn’t going to make anymore choices for us. She has controlled everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day and this is where I draw the line.

Instead though, all she received was support for the MIL with commenters agreeing that the name Alphabeta Silver was NOT the best idea. 

One person wrote: “I don’t usually side with the MIL but… Alpha-Beta is a werewolf/furry sex trope. Please don’t.”

Another pointed out: “For loving grammar and literature so much, they really don’t have much of an imagination if all they came up with was to name their kid alphabet.”

“Like, if you love literature, name it after a beloved character from literature,” added one commenter.

“Maybe MIL is controlling…..but maybe this is the time to let her be lol,” wrote one person.

This is a terrible name. That poor f**king kid.”

There’s been no update on the post so we have no idea who won this battle. What do you think? Do you like the name Alphabeta?
