DH is Persian and wants to use a Persian names for the baby. We chose a boy and girl name a while ago but when I mentioned the girl name today he claimed that no, he no longer likes it. UGH! Has anyone had their spouse change their mind on baby name this close to the end of pregnancy? I don't have a problem, per say, with him changing his mind but the new suggestions for girl names are all unacceptable to me because they are just an utter mouthfull for an American/ English speaking person. I like a name that is linked to DH's culture but not at the expense of the child hating their name and no one in my family, the child's school or any other place- being able to pronouce her name. I just am frustrated because I already spent endless hours around 17 weeks preggo to come up with the girl name and have him agree.
Anyone else had to have this battle? I feel like I have to stand up for my child as DH doesn't get it. DH often complains how people in all kinds of places can't pronouce his name.... and his is not that difficult.... so I would think he would "get it".
