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.
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.
