When your friend is pregnant it should be a happy occasion. But what if your friend tells you what she plans to name her baby and you don’t like it, would you rock the boat? Is it really any of your business? Does it make a difference if they are naming the baby after a relative of your’s but you and that side of the family are on the outs? Is it worth ruining your friendship over?
A sista reached out to Sam Sylk, radio host of The Sam Sylk Show on 93.1 WZAK, during his Reality Hour segment by dropping a letter in his Facebook Message box to ask Sam is she about to go to far in regards to her BFF and her baby.
See if Sam Sylk thinks she should keep the peace below.
I had a childhood best friend for a little over 10 years. She just had her first child a little over two years ago. She decided to name her child after my niece. And that hurt me because three years prior I lost my brother to a homicide suicide involving the mother of my niece. It’s alleged that my brother took my nieces mothers life and then took his own life. So my nieces maternal side of her family has conflict with my side of the family so we can’t see my niece. My ex best friend knew this and even after explaining to her and her fiancé why and how that would be hurtful. They decided to name their child after my niece anyways and tell me that if I was a good friend I wouldn’t let it bother me and I would stick around. Was I wrong for leaving the friendship?
