I love Dexter the tv show! DH and I both warch it. That particular murderer is a good one wink1.gif


AND it all doesn't matter now because baby is a GIRL!!!!!

What about an alternative/shorter spelling of Analise?  I know one little 10-year-old with it spelled like that....

You know, I have to agree with your DH on this one, if you named the last one something he "allegedly" hates (and I hate that you use allegedly here because he probably does hate it.  A lot of people have a STRONG distaste for that name...I'm not even going to repeat what my boyfriend said about the name, and I'm not too fond of it either), then perhaps it's fair if he gets the final say on this one.  Then again, that's a personal thing, and I already had to give that up.

 

I LOVED the name Dain.  I wanted to name my son Dain Alexander since ten years before he was even a possibility in my mind.  Well, when I was pregnant with my first son, my husband vetoed it and we used a name I wasn't nearly as fond of, but I let it slide because I had the final say in our daughter's name and I didn't absolutely hate the name.  I wanted to use the name for our second son, but again, the boyfriend vetoed it.  He also vetoed the girl name I had chosen, Juniper, because he hated it.

 

I know this isn't exactly going to be a popular opinion, but maybe you should let him have final say in the name this time around because last time you chose something he hated just because you loved it for years.  To me that's just fair.  I mean, you picked a name he hates and now has to live with his daughter being named that for her whole life.  I can't even begin to tell you how much that drives my boyfriend nuts that his ex-wife did the same thing with his son.  It just seems fair to me that if you get a name he hates, he should get the final say in the next name, even if it's something you hate.

I do plan on giving him the final say on the name this time, which is why I was stressing about the name Silas.  And which is why I am so, so thankful it's a girl!  When I was pregnant with our second child we both made a list of 10 or so names for each sex.  Then we each crossed off any vetoes.  The only named I vetoed on his boy list was Silas.  He did not veto Elsa on my girl list.  We were surprised at birth with that child and if it was a girl, then it was going to be Elsa and if it was a boy, it was going to be Silas.  I kept trying and trying to get over my dislike of the name Silas, and as I said before, I know once I have the baby, my baby will become that name.   I also don't appreciate that he can't articulate why he doesn't care for a name, I'm the type of person that likes reasons for everything and I have a hard time accepting otherwise.  DH on the other hand will either "love" something or "hate" it and that's about it.  Rarely is there a middle ground.  So out of 1000 names he will love one name and hate every single other name.  I find that hard to believe.  And if it is true, then he needs to work on finding a middle ground.

Your DH sounds exactly like mine.

It's a good thing I love, or at least like a lot, the name he wanted this time, because he is determined that her name is Ivy. With our other three kids, I gave him a list of 50+ names for each gender, and he crossed out all but exactly TWO NAMES on each list. That's what I had to choose from. lol. Our tastes in names are very, very different, so it's really amazing that we were even able to name four people and remain on good terms.

When I finally get him to give me a good reason why he "HATES" a name (for example, Leila, which was my choice this time around), he says every time: "I just can't imagine having a kid named that." Which is still not a WHY, in my mind.

Congrats on finding out you're having a little girl!  I love the name Sadie-- I know a Sadie and she's AWESOME, so that helps.  Some other "s" names I like -- Cassia ('sh' not' sss'...but could be pronounced sss) Maelys, Solana, Ailis, and Seren...  not sure if our tastes are the same, but couldn't resist weighing in.  :)
