Would you go ahead and name your new baby a name that both you and DH/SO/BF loved , even if your older child/children didn't like the name at all ??

Yeah, I would. When they have kids they can name them whatever they want. This is about you and your SO.

Personally, I'd try to reach a compromise, but that's because Spencer had been through enough drama in his life and we wanted him to feel as involved as possible with his little sister's arrival. I don't think we would have gone ahead with Sofia if he absolutely hated it.

I would try and involve her, but in the end, it'd be our decision, whether it was one she liked or not.

I would try to involve my child, because getting a new bother or sister can make kids crazy jealous and I think that by involving them it makes the transition a little easier. That being said, if I was absolutly in love with a name and DH liked it as well, but my DD/DS didn't like it I would probably go ahead with it, because there are other ways to have them involved...ways that aren't as perminent as a name. I also think it depends how old the other child is maybe? That's just my take on it though.

Oh yes, definitely. I wouldn't ask a 2 year old's opinion, but as Spencer was 6 at the time we figured he was mature enough.

i agree with most everyone else, i don't think it should be a their decision, its between you and the father.

Honestly, probably not. I wouldn't want any of my immediate family to hate the name.

I don't know, probably not when you have a child it affects everyone and if one of my kiddos absolutely hated a name I would definatly take that into consideration, I involved my children with the names of the other kiddos, in my family it is not just "my baby" it is "our baby", it cuts down on the jealously. Having a new babe is a hard enough transition for the bigger siblings whether it be #2 or #6 and I opt for anything that will smooth the bumps in that road. And if your child hates it chances are he won't use it and choose to call his/her sibling something else entirely.

Yeah I would use the name me and my SO decide on, my older children would have input on the name but in the end it would be mine and his decision
