I am hoping you all can offer some inspiration since DH and I are at a stalemate over names! Our DS is named Oliver Matthew, which we love and had agreed on years before we actually had him. The problem is that it is the ONLY boy name we can agree on. I am finally realizing it is a cultural thing between us. DH is from London (we have only lived in the states for the last
4 years) and I am American, so we view the name Oliver from two different perspectives - I see it as a little unique (although becoming more common) and a more stylish name. DH sees it as a traditional name as old as Adam or James. So in trying to find another boy name we have hit a wall. He thinks my choices are too trendy and I think his choices are too common!
I would welcome any suggestions that would be a compromise as I think we need to come up with things we have not yet considered.
Here's where we are at:
Thanks for any help in advance!!!!
