We had already decided that the middle name would be Claire, which is him mother's middle name.
He has now decided that he wants Jocelyn and a first name.

I like the name but not 100% sure on it quite yet.

So, what do you all think?

As a side note, his mom's name was Joyce Claire. So it would be like we are totally naming our daughter after the MIL that didn't like me.

Oh, yeah. That seems too close for me too! I never wanted to name my children after anyone but I did give in when DH suggested using his deceased mothers (I never met her) middle name as our daughters middle name. I am prob OK with it since I didn't know her...my opinion wasn't able to be swayed! I would have a hard time with it if, like you, she didn't like me!

It's a pretty name. I'm not sure I'd want my baby totally named after someone who didn't like me either. I hope you can agree on one that works for both of you honey!!

I agree with everyone else hunny. I think its a beautiful name tho. Maybe if you tweaked it like since the first name is so close, change the middle name if youre not 100% sold. Or just change the first name lol.

I'm lurking...so I'll post!

I wouldn't do it either, Katie. Like you said, the woman didn't like you. Why would you name your daughter COMPLETELY after her? I love her middle name though!!! Something funny..my aunt's name is Joyce...her given names are Claire Joyce! But everyone calls her Joyce.

I didn't know you were having a girl either!!! Congrats to you and Dave!!!

Hmm that is a little too close! I don't like my MIL so I would stay away from that if it was me. I like the name Claire. Hmm...I don't know.

Yeah, I think that's a bit close for me too.


On a completely random note, my youngest brother has always joked about naming a daughter Rose Claire....because that means "light pink" in French.

I couldn't do it...too close. I love the middle name. I like the first name. But, I don't blame you for not wanting to put them together. Especially if she didn't like you. How about using a name from your side of the family, or a name that is close? Then your little one will have names from both sides? Just an idea.

Too close for me, too! I love Claire, however. It's on my list!

Hopefully he'll compromise.

I asked dave what he thought of Jocelyn Louise since my mom's middle name is Louise but he won't budge on Claire so.....Jocelyn is Out.

Man, choosing a name is not an easy task. I want something that sounds good as a child yet also sounds professional when she is a CEO 30 years from now

I just keep reminding Dave that I am the one that signs the birth certificate (j/k)

I think taking Joyclyn out is a good idea....especially if you and your MIL don't exactly get along. I think that giving your lo her middle name is enough. I hope you and dh find a name that works for both of you.

Good luck!

I'm glad to hear the name's out. But I will say that I like Jocelyn better than Joyce. I do hope you can come up with something. Maybe another -Lyn name or another J name? And don't forget to match it up to your last name! We had some issues when we were trying to think up a name for our angel. There are just things you don't put with Bush!
