The name we chose, well actually out 3-year old kind of chose it, I've bonded with as well, but same situation, DH says he likes it and it's "ok", but I can't get him to say it's "the" name. His two choices are nice as well but I can't say they're favorites of mine, one reminds me a little bit of an ex, his older sister who died tragically quite young had the name, it's not really an issue, it's a very long ago ex that I never kept touch with, but I keep thinking if that's what pops into my head now, when I hear that name I'd hate to name my baby that and have that same thought everytime I hear her name, just doesn't seem right. On the other hand, I've held off calling the baby by the name we chose, Sydney, so I don't get too attached to it in case he changes his mind, but he's been calling her that. I'm thinking once we see her we'll know for sure. For our son we toyed with the name Axel James (or another J middle name so he could go by AJ), Axel was one of my grandfather's middle names, which I was surprised to learn has become quite popular, but as soon as he was born our first pick, Brady, suited him so much that no other name would work.
Good luck but I really think you'll both know once she's born!

And since he hadn't given me any other suggestions, I was sort of thinking that would end up being the name. But now he came up with one he likes. I don't hate his name either, it's quite nice actually, but I just really do have my heart set on Violet. He likes Raine. I think Raine would make a great middle name. I hate to not use his name because he was feeling left out that I've made most of the decisions this pregnancy and really want to give his suggestion a fair shake, but I just don't know. It's a nice name, but it just doesn't feel like The Name to me.
So our little girl is still nameless. :(
