Okay, so... Here's the deal. The girl name, Ella runs deep on my side of the family. Well, apparently, one grandma on my sister in laws family is named Ella, but NEVER went by it. She was called something else her entire life.
Well.. My sister in law found out if I ever have a girl I always said I wanted to use Ella. A month later she's pregnant, just found out its a girl. She keeps saying "Ella this" and "I can't wait until little Ella arrives" well, I've voiced that I would still use the name Ella... No matter what. She flew into a rage! I thought about using a variation of the name, but goodness. I've loved my family name since I was a girl!! Should I just bend??? Or is first cousins with the same name okay!??
