i would not go LONG WITH A NAME I DID NOT LIKE....that being said if you already told him he could pick maybe let him pick 3 names he likes and then maybe you can pick from those 3? just a thought good luck hun
Hi ladies.. I've kind of run into a problem...
When I was pregnant with my first baby I really was hoping for a girl. I had the name picked out for a long time. Savanna Lee.
Lee is my brothers name so it has a lot of meaning to me.
My husband, who was my bf at the time, agreed as long as he could pick the boy name. I was so happy he was going with my name that I said ok........
We had a girl!
This is where the problem come in. He wants to name a boy
A-VOL(kinda like bowl with a v) ee
I'm not sold on it and every person I have told about it does not like it.
We are TTC our second baby.
I have tried talking to him about it saying other people don't like it.. he just doesn't care. I could get used to the name but should I let him use a name that I could get used to? Of course we have to get pregnant first and have a boy but I think about it a lot.. lol what are your thought?
I agree with the pick 3 names! It should be a name that you both like, not that you "get used to"! You're going to be saying that name for the rest of your life!! :) I could only imagine what our child would be named if DH was allowed to pick the names on his own. *shakes head*
I agree that it should be a name that you both like. In all honesty though, it shouldn't matter whether other people like it or not either. My DH was almost the same way and said that he wouldn't care what our girls' name was but he wanted to pick the boys' names. We compromised on both of them (mostly middle names too). He really wanted Judah for Jaxon, but I felt that it probably wouldn't have been a suitable name.
I agree with the other girls that it should be a name that you both like, not a name that you can get used to. But I'm stubborn and I would just tell my husband like it is and say, "Hell no, we're not using that name." I know it makes me sound like a bitty, but when we were deciding my son's name, I pretty much said to him, "Listen, we can either agree on a name, or he's going to get the name that I give him because I'm the mother and at the hospital, it is ultimately my decision." Thankfully, we agreed on a name!
Good luck hon!!
Honestly, I don't think you should "make" him change it, since you picked out your daughter's name and told him he could pick the boy's name. I like it actually; I think it's very unique.
