Mom-to-be asks if it's wrong to give baby the family name Gaylord against husband's wishes.

Picking a name for your baby can be a minefield — especially when in-laws are involved.

One woman is at a crossroads because she wants to uphold a family naming tradition but her husband and his family are 100% against it. The tradition? Naming her firstborn son Gaylord.

She took to Reddit to ask for advice about whether she should uphold the tradition (by naming the baby Gaylord but referring to him as "Gail") or kowtow to homophobic bullies and call the kid Mason or something.

The couple's first son is due in August, and the woman thought her husband was fully on board the Gaylord train:

My husband (23M) and I (24F) just found out we're having a baby boy. He's due in August, and this will be our first child, and the first grandchild of my side of the family. This is supposed to be a happy exciting time, and instead it's caused a huge fight that's tearing our family apart. All over a damn name, a name he agreed on a year ago and he's now going back on his word. I am crushed because this is so important to my entire family.
