Every parent has the right to name their child whatever they want, but what if someone else in your immediate family already called dibs on the name? Are baby names first-come, first-serve?

Reddit user u/Oxandri is 8 months pregnant and recently widowed. She planned on naming her baby boy after his late father, but her sister swept in early and snatched the name for her baby instead. This mom-to-be is livid at her sister.

Now, she's asking the internet. "AITA (Am I The As*hole) for telling my sister she can't name her baby after my dead husband?"

She writes:

I (30F) am 8 months pregnant with my first child, it's a boy. My husband Rodrigo (35M) died in the army 3 months ago. My sister Kayla (28F) just gave birth five days ago. She and her BF live with our parents, and I temporarily moved in as well (it's a very big house) because I hated being alone and my parents have been very supportive.

We were going to name the baby Alex, and I am still going with that, plus Rodrigo as a middle name. My sister never discussed baby names with me or the family, she just always said she loves Hispanic names (we are white Americans, my husband was Mexican).
