My in laws keep calling my DD by a name that is not hers

My DD's name is Isabelle. She is 5 months old and we call her Issy. My inlaws and DH are Filipino and while DH loves the name, his parents don't like that it is not a Spanish sounding name. We also have a 3 year old and his name is Wesley, they didn't like that either but me and DH both love the names.

Anyway, they call her Isabella and they have DH's whole family doing it now, it makes me so mad  and both me and DH have told them that is not her name. Still, they call her it over and over and refuse to call her by either her name or her nickname. They say that Isabelle is too "white" of a name. BTW I am white. I don't want my DD growing up thinking her name is Isabella.

I am ready to say that if they can't call her by her name, they can stay away from her until they can. Me and DH chose her name and I don't know why they think they have the right to question it.

    Then if your hubby agrees, do what you've gotta do.

    That's bullshit.

    i would just get over it .... think of it as their nick name for her.....  my son is jameson  i call him james or bill.... both clearly are not his name my sister is nicolette but we occasionally call her nicole  and my other dd is juliana  we call her julia or even juliet.....  seriously just let it go.

     FFS Get over it. Is it like "uh" at the end? For real, you need to let it go. There are bigger issues in life.
