I’m so lucky I have an amazing mother-in-law who seems to love me more than her son at times. She also lives far away in Colorado, so she doesn’t even have the chance to be pushy or judgy — not that she would anyway because she’s the best (love you, Mama Schreier!). Unfortunately, other folks aren't quite as lucky as me. If your MIL seems to hate you and everything you love and you're ready to throw caution to the wind, there are plenty of baby names your mother-in-law will hate.
When I think of an awful MIL, I think of someone who is openly judge-y about your parenting choices and someone who goes out of their way to contradict you when it comes to your kid. They also loathe everything unconventional, especially if it’s something you came up with or something “those damn millennials” are doing these days. They sure have a lot of opinions, especially when it comes to naming your kid (their future grandchild). Not only will dumb names probably send them over the edge, but unconventional spellings of traditional names will do the trick, too. Your MIL is sure to lose her mind over the very idea of her grandchild's birth certificate bearing one of these monikers... in fact, for an instant viral video, suggest one of these and film her reaction.
