Names you like, but partner has vetoed.

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I love the names Hazel, Charlotte & Olivia, but SO has vetoed all three.

At least we're agreeing about Aisling, Leliana, Sebastian & Gabriel!

I really want the name Henry. Again. My husband can't stand it.

Neither will budge and 19 minutes after the baby is born will be trying to come up with something so we can sign the birth certificate. Yup, been there.

We semi agree on a girl's name, but I seem programmed for boys.

Ezekiel... I love that name. Dh wants nothing to with it

Both my SIL and I love Mateus, but both of our husbands vetoed it. My husband said he wouldn't name his son after cheap wine.

I love the name Henry too but the husbandit it pretty adamantly against it. My mother gave me this song and dance about how he doesn't get to choose cause i have to carry the baby for 9 months. I tried to tell her nicely that of course DH gets a voice in the name of his child. Sigh, mothers...

Alice and Helen

For a boy, I can't think of any. We have very similar taste in boy names.

DH doesn't like most names I come up with. When it's right, we both agree right away.

DP vetoed Laurence /Laurie for a girl and Samuel for a boy...
post #9 of 24
Ooooh, there are so many.

Girls: Caroline, Violet, Hazel, Ruby, Miriam (nn Miri), Clara
Boys: Levi, Gabriel, Oliver

Actually, I totally just ran across Miriam the other day and just totally feel head over heels for it. I'm working on my powers of persuasion.

We don't disagree too much on names thankfully. But I love the name Emma and he doesn't. Also when I was pg with #2 I loved the name Lauren/Loren Alyse but he didn't. The only name he really loves that I don't is Dakota (for a boy). I have agreed to use it as a middle name if this one is a boy (Isaac Dakota) but I still don't really like it.

I LOVE the name Isla for a girl but he thinks it's weird and I really like Oscar for a boy and he said he won't name his kid after a Sesame Street character. After he shots down my names I ask him what he likes and he goes "Oh, I haven't given it any thought". Grrr!

I looooooooooove Alice and Helen. Dh, unfortunately, just doesn't share the love.

i SOOOO wanted to name my little girl agnes dei. we would have called her dei (pronounced day). i still love that name, but everyone was so awful about it ...i wish i'd never told a soul. they convinced my husband it was bad. if my little boy had been a girl, his name was to be iris. my husband wasn't crazy about that either.

I like what my DH refers to as "hippie names" -- like Sparrow or Rain or River for a girl. He's so silly.

We pretty much agree on boy names, although he vetoed Seth for some reason...but honestly we have so many other boy names that we love (like Gideon and Henry and Levi and Louis) I'm okay with the occasional veto.

My sister pulled this and named her daughter something that EVERYONE including her Dh hated. Cute little girl, but 1 year later many of us are still cringing over the name.....Its Sawyer, which in itself isn't a bad name, but its for a girl and there are just so many pretty girl names. Plus, she only stumbled upon it one day and decided she liked it and when everyone told her "eh" she fixated upon it. In conversation I still get "for a girl?"

Sorry if anyone has this name...I think I'd like it better if there were a good reason or if BIL had at least liked it.

DDCC-

My DH refuses to let me use the names Luke or Seth for a boy.

But after 3 pregnancies of saying he HATED one of the boys names I LOVE, he has finally changed his mind , and if this baby is a boy, I get to use the formal name, AND the nickname, both of which he previously said he despised! I'm so happy!


He's not thrilled about the name I like as a first name if it is a girl, but loves the middle name. I think he will come to love the first name as well.

I like Lola for a girl, and lots of old fashioned names which my husband hates. He gave in after our second was born and let me name her Eliza, but he wanted to name her Mandolyn, Dariah, or Delilah which I wasn't into. He says he gets to pick this time.... wondering what we'll end up, lol. The girls both have "song" names, Layla and Eliza Jane, so we'll look for another name from a good song.
