Are there certain tones/responses that DH/SO gives that lets you know he really likes or dislikes a name?

Well, since DH does not like any name I come up with : } he just shakes his head But that could be because I talk baby names all the time these days!

My first clue he doesn't like a name will be if when I say the name I get an immediate "HUH?!"

If he likes the name he will usually repeat it back to himself

Andy usually just says yes or no, and sometimes I get a "hmm.. that one might have to grow on me for a bit."

DH and I have very similar naming styles so it's rare if we disagree on a name but the other day I brought up Henry to him and he took a minute and then said 'It would be a nice middle name" So I kind of said oh.. ok! Back to the thought pot! lol

I get one of three responses:

1. "I like it" (not overly excited....he never gets excited )
2. "Hmm..." (and he thinks for a minute) "yeah...that could grow on me"
3. "SUTTON!- are you KIDDING me! As in (insert negative association here)" I used Sutton as an example but he finds negative association/jokes for EVERY name that he doesn't like.

He's simple lol

DH doesn't usually like discussing names with me, unless he brings up the name. Usually if he doesn't like a name he will curl his lip and give me this look like "what are you thinking woman!"

DH has basically refused to talk named with me anymore until we are actually pregnant. But he has a very different naming style than I do, and he usually goes "Ugh, what kind of a name is that??" or, if he doesn't really HATE it, he'll go "Um, I could never see myself with a kid named that"

We're gonna have serious problems if our next is a girl...we don't agree on any girl names at all.

DH scrunches his nose and shakes his head when he doesn't care for a name... lol I think I do the same. Lucky for us we seem to have pretty similar tastes in names!

This is how are usual discussion goes....

ME: What do you think about the name...
HIM: "Oh LORD here we go again!"
ME: "Fine I won't tell you"
HIM: "Just tell me"
ME: "Nope"
HIM: "PLLLEEEAAASSSSEEEEE!"
ME: "Camilla" (just an example)
HIM: NO! (or if he does like it) "Hmmm....interesting"
The only time I know if he really likes a name is when I mention another name and he says "What happened to Kaia?" (another example)

My SO and I are wttc for a while, and he practices his selective deafness about 50% of the time i bring any names up he is very simple when we do talk about it, though. its either okay or terrible....he has some crazy excuse for so many names!

i just get a yes or no response. he NEVER brings the topic up and it's like pulling teeth to get him to actively engage in this topic. he made such a stink about getting to chose the mn for this baby, and yet he took FOREVER to decide on what he wanted.
