Okay, dh and I are completly at odds on names. Does anyone have any suggestions on anything inbetween what he likes and what I like?

My fav's
Boy- Lachlan
Sebastian
Girl- Rowen
Rhiannon

Dh's fav's
Boy- James Steven - but only together and only spelled that way.
Clive
Girl- Elizabeth
Victoria


If it helps, I have a ds named Kyle and dh has 2 ds named Seamus and Liam. I don't know why he only likes such traditional names now!

What if you guys can agree on something like if you have a boy... let DH pick the first name and you pick the middle name and if you have a girl let you pick the first name and DH pick the middle name?

And with that agreement you should make it understood that the names you guys pick out, neither of you can pick a name that the other just 100% hates....

What if you did one of your names for the first/middle and one of his for the first/middle ?

I like

Rowen Elizabeth/Rhiannon Elizabeth
Elizabeth Rowen
Rhiannon Victoria

See if he'd use Lachlan James or Sebastian James <-love that

Lachlan Steven James doesn't sound bad at all .
Lachlan Clive could work too !

Good luck !!

I like Britanie's idea of mixing and matching. I think my favs would be -

James Sebastian
Rowen Elizabeth - although i prefer Rowen spelt Rowan.

Of the other names, the only ones I'm not keen on are Lachlan and Clive.

I agree, mix and match the styles.


Rowen Elizabeth (prefer Rowan)

Victoria Rhiannon


James Steven Lachlan (humm that's a mouth full)

Lachlan Steven James


Sebastian James

Lachlan James

James Lachlan (I like this a lot)





basically just keep changing combos/looking for name sets until both of you say AH HA! (I'm in the same spot at the moment but I refuse to give in to the boring male names my OH wants =p)

Personally I can't pronounce "Lachlan" lol, must be the Dutch accent And Sebastian is cute, will prob. get Stef as a nick name I really think that Rowen is such a cutie patutie name for a girl and I also like your husbands two choices for girls names but not for boys
