The woman was 21 when she got pregnant. She gave birth to a baby girl in 2016. Her husband proposed to her on the same day. This seemed to be the start of her troubles.

The baby girl was named after the woman's mother. The couple picked the name because the woman's mother passed away suddenly. The death was a traumatic experience for the woman.
The couple had picked out a different name for the baby initially. They had to make that into the baby's middle name in order to keep her mother's name. The woman's child is now four years old.
The general sentiment is that the sister-in-law is a terrible person.

Later on, the sister-in-law became pregnant. This is where the name saga begins. The sister-in-law decided that she wants to give her baby the same name the woman named her 4-year-old daughter.
The sister-in-law demanded that the woman start calling her daughter by her middle name. This would allow the sister-in-law to use the name without worrying about two bearers in the same family.

The sister-in-law said no other name would do, and that was the only name she liked. The26-years-old woman also refused to change her daughter's name. This has earned her all sorts of insult and harassment from the sister-in-law.
The sister-in-law and her husband seem to have picked out another name. However, the sister-in-law still accuses her of ruining her baby's name. The woman believes that her sister-in-law is doing this to spite her as the name carries no personal meaning for her.
