week one: Alanna was technically my pick even though DH suggested it because it is my fav name ever! However DH and I write stories together and that is one of our main heriones names so it is kind of off limits.
Week two: Wayne's pick, he chose Eleanor. Which I am luke warm on. (Eleanor Mortimore)
Week three: I let Quinn pick and she picked Wayne's number one fav name ever Victoria. Which I don't want to use because it is my SIL name.
Week four: My pick I am liking Zinnia, but I know Wayne dislikes it so when we talked about names on Sunday I offered Zinnia or Arabella. Wayne like neither of them and suggested Penelope which IS a name on my short list. But the point of it being my pick is it being the name I want to test drive.
So of course I am all pithy Dh shooting down my recommendations, and not recommending anything or being open to any other names than the two he has already declared for.
I was so tempted to tell him never mind I tell him what I picked after I fill out the birth certificate.
Tell him to pick 4 or 5 other names, aside from the two he already has. And you narrow your list down to 4 or 5 as well. And try those out. You one week, him the next.
A perfect name will come to you guys eventually. Don't get so caught up over it being a name you pick vs. a name he picks. Work on finding a name that you BOTH like. It's better to name your child a name both mom and dad like, than a name that mom loves and dad hates. Right?
