What's in a name?
Well, in our case the name is an homage to BM.
SD and DH have named their latest child after BM (first name) and DH's mom (middle name). Spelling is slightly different but it's obviously taken from BM's name.
Sigh. This is yet another example of the pedestal BM is on due to her and SD's enmeshment and parental alienation. BM is the ultimate parent and now everyone will be reminded of it for the rest of our lives. At no point was there ever the slightest consideration to use any of her father's family names, of course. This is the third child so one would think it might have at least crossed their minds. But nope. Only DH's family and now BM are represented in the kids' names.
I fully understand that many people name their children after relatives but when you don't wear rose-colored glasses and know that the honoree is a cheating, lying narcissist it makes it pretty hard to let the name roll of one's tongue.
