“Here Emma! We’ve named your baby brother after the man you’ve repeatedly had sexual relations with!”
If they were so bent on doing this, they should have asked Rumple first. Because they barely knew Neal and while, yes, he was a hero to the very last, Snow and Charming have very little connection to Neal.
Yes, I agree. Other than the one flashback in the lost year in EF after their return, I don’t think they talked to him much.
I’m thinking now the final decision on calling him Neal ultimately came from Snow because she was Team Neal in 3a. Charming might have the same reservations that a lot of us have, that they didn’t really know him and couldn’t do this but I think it was Snow’s decision. I can see her really wanting to push for naming him Neal.
So if I’m right and it came down to Snow’s final decision, it’s not that surprising.
