Im not even pregnant yet and DH and I can't decide on names!!! LOL I love more modern names, unique, uncommon around where I live!! I also like some very traditional names!! Dh does not like unique names at all, he turns every name into something he hates for example:

Girls names:

Madden: John Madden the football player
Emerson: A school by our house/A last name
Harlow: Harlett (sp?)
Weslie: he thinks it is a boys name
Marlie: Hates it just cause
Rowan: " " " "
Emellia: " " " "

Boys names:

Ezra : Hates it
Kason: Hates it


The only names we can agree on are

Boy: Easton Raymond

Girl: Shae ??

We have a very long French last name so we need a fairly simple first name!!

Did you and your SO have a hard time deciding on names??? How did you come to an agreement??

We are kinda on the same page. Every name I suggest DH doesn't like and vice versa! The only girl name we both like is Laylah Grace and the only boy names we like are Elishah Scott, Jack, and Alexander Hamilton

Girl names are easy for us, but boy names... not so much. I bring it up every now and then, but I don't really press the point since he has that typical guy attitude -- if it isn't happening here and now, and I can't see any tangible evidence of it happening in the near future, then I don't really think about it or get excited about it. It drives me crazy.

It was actually easy for us. When I told him I was pregnant I told him if it was a girl he got to name her, if it was a boy I got to name him (both within reason, where if we just absolutely wanted to vomit at the name chosen, the other would chose something else.) It worked well for us because 1) I couldn't think of a girl's name if I tried and 2) It gave him something to think about while he was at Navy training. I chose Conner Thomas and he agreed, had it been a girl he chose Lauren Lynn which I agreed to. I'm sure that kind of "system" doesn't work for everyone but it worked for us.

For us, we tell each other names and say "veto" if we don't like it then its off the table. We have a couple names, but we're still debating. We haven't told anyone except my BFF... and don't plan to until we know the sex.... and that could be at the birth

I beg to differ. Boy's names are super easy and it's the girl's names that are so difficult. HAHA. I think DH and I actually have it narrowed down to two girl names. We have had our boy name picked for much much longer.

DH is a teacher so lots of names have association for him. It's a good thing I love unique names. I can almost guarantee they will not be duplicated here or in my DDC. HAHA.

I go back and forth on the 2nd children's names, but the first ones are locked in stone

Surprisingly DH and I didn't have a hard time deciding on names. I made a list of my 10 top names and showed him. He looked it over and had one criteria and that was that the first name be at least 3 syllables (like Sam-u-el instead of E-than). I don't know what's up with that but that was his criteria so the girl was really easy as I'd always loved Amara and I asked about Joshua and he had liked it so that was it. I'm not too keen on long first names so I was happy that he accepted the 2 choices I'd really liked.
