Did any of us give our children names that we liked, but didn't have our hearts set on because of DH/SO ?
Or did you both easily agree on the names you chose ?

I didn't have my heart set on Nevaeh's name .. but I still love it !

We made a deal when we got preggo the first time. We would take turns. Jason went first. But we both have veto power. I cant even remember what ideas I had for our first... Although there are quite a few names that I really like that dh hates (Reagan, for instance)

Camryn
Nina (my mom's middle name is Ninette..she goes by Nina)

I don't know..I'm just not happy with it and I get sick of people calling her Car-uh..I knew it would happen but DH said.."no it wont"

i think brad is the one that settled. he was really set on tyrus and i decided at the last second that i didnt really LOVE it. but he liked ashton. sometimes he still gives me a hard time about him not getting his tyrus.

I love both my boy's names! I am always the one who throws name ideas at dh until we decide on one. He has never been the one to say he liked a certain name. So I guess I am the one who does the naming!

I suggested my son's name. I loved the name Hayden forever and Jacob is after my dad so luckily his father agreed.

Neither of us settled, we both love the name Liam. Although I don't like his middle name, Edward, but it was important to DH.

We have our second named already too. We have the same taste in names so its been pretty easy so far.

with all three of my duaghters we always had a hard time agreeing on a name but it always worked out that we found the perfect name that we both loved so neither one of us settled for a name.

I came home from work one day and said what do you think of Kiandra Sage? Josh said he really liked it a lot, so that was that!

Don't you pronounce it Care-ah? I read it as Care-ah, all the Kara's and Cara's I know, (which is only 4) pronounce it that way. To me Car-ah would have to R's. Karra

You could always change it... I have a friend who was named something else (I forget what) until almost a yeat old, ten her parents took a trip and fell in love with a place name, Nahanni, and changed her name to that. I really couldn't imagine her aything else

as soon as I foud out i was pregnant I had my heart set on the name "Mai". Dh hated it during the whole pregnancy. but he got use to it because i refused to name her anything else. Then i told him her middle name is going to be "Iannah" and he liked it and said he would call her by her middle name then. But she's 11 months now and i assure you he calls her Mai. Guys dont know what they want, so i felt like i had to take controll. we were both happy in the end though.
