The problem is that me and DH are never going to agree on a name- He has a long list of boring family names that have been in his family forever that he is convinced he will name his kids. I have a very unique name, I have always loved my unique name, and i feel it is a gift to give your child a beautiful and new and unique symbol of themselves, and i refuse to let my kids be the fifty thousandth child named 'John Doe'. And we are both very passionate about it.

PS- I vote HIS name choice is the baby's middle name.

I'm curious... What's your name? And what are the names that both you and him are pushing for?

Good luck agreeing on a name! We've always had a hard time with boys names, so we're still debating on those in case this is a boy.
I'm curious too, what's your name??

What is your name?

What names does he like? What names do you like?

You should each make a list of your own names, and then go through them together. If there is a name that one of you absolutely, positively hates... then I don't think it would be fair for either of you to keep it on your list. All in all, there has to be an agreement and a compromise in the end. Maybe you guys could agree for one of you to pick the first name, and the other to pick the middle name? Or you could pick a more unique name that has a more common nickname?

You also have to understand that if his side of the family passes down names, this is something that is important to him as well.

I loooovee the name Teva. I dated a boy once with that name, and haven't heard it since. I'm all for unique names. Stick to your guns!
