DH and I don't agree a lot on names, we just have different styles. He likes SUPER classic names (think Billy, Tommy, etc) and I like somewhat out-there names that are still recognizable and classic in a different way - like old Gaelic names or classic ones that aren't currently popular. So finding middle ground is hard. So we mostly stick with family names, because even though I might not LOVE them, I love the meaning behind them, and I know they'll grow on me. However, our girl name this time is totally my choice, not family-related, and I love it! Not sharing till after birth though... I won't even make it official with DH cause he has this weird idea that if you choose a name for a kid, and the kid is the opposite sex, you lose the ability to use that name for future kids. Whaaa???
