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

debra_lea 08-03-2010 06:02 PM

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.

nintendork 08-03-2010 06:14 PM

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...

pollyanna123 08-03-2010 06:19 PM

Alice and Helen

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

trekkingirl 08-03-2010 06:46 PM

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

Coco99 08-03-2010 07:21 PM

DP vetoed Laurence /Laurie for a girl and Samuel for a boy...

momma-molly 08-03-2010 08:27 PM

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!

My girls are Alice, Helen, and Charlotte

pollyanna123 08-03-2010 11:03 PM

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

elizawill 08-03-2010 11:07 PM

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.

babybirkel 08-03-2010 11:25 PM

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.

bluebirdmama 08-03-2010 11:47 PM

girl: Stella, Raven
boy: Elliot, Graydon, Eli, Isaac, Zion

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.

hehe I like Dakota....that's my dogs name. It means friend

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.

Aliy 08-04-2010 09:18 PM

I really likel Oilver but dh says it a dogs name..... ?!?!?!?! okay.
Dh actually has ended up pretty much naming our kids so far. i love their names and we agreed before hand but ulitmately he has chossed the names and I agreed

ETA last pregnancy he was dead set against Addison. Funnily enough ds1 had said he wants to name the baby that

baggybears 08-05-2010 10:40 PM

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.

laerhk 08-08-2010 01:44 AM

Do couples actually agree on names? LOL Our first was named by my BIL. Our second wasn't named until 24 hours after birth when we finally had time to drag out the baby book (which was of no help).

I've been making a list of my own, but don't bother to share it until the kid is here. Have to see what he/she "looks like" before I bother bringing it up... In the meantime, we've not discussed it and probably won't.

sweeteleanor 08-08-2010 10:15 AM

I am pushing hard for Oliver for a boy. Oliver Charles. This has not been vetoed but it gets a sigh and a *look*. LOL!

Violet for a girl has been all but voted down. Same look and sigh.

ombrooklyn 08-09-2010 11:12 AM

If it's a girl i would love to name her Dottie after my grandmother who just passed but DH doesn't like it.

BUT,he brought up Gidget the other night! Seriously?! He is stuck on the letter G for some reason. He also likes Gia and Gigi.

We have one name for a girl we agree on but I'm not sure it's the one. We have none for a boy....

Kitten 08-11-2010 04:53 PM

How bout Gaga? Then you could call her Lady as a nickname. Lolz
