I am 17 weeks pregnant and my boyfriend are having a little disagreement (a big one to him). See, he really really likes the name Wyatt..I like the name too, just not as much as he does, I've found names that I like better. See, but everytime I even say a name, he says Wyatt. I try to tell him that this needs to be a mutual desicion, but he doesnt listen. Hes so gung-ho about Wyatt..LOL., So I tried to compromise, I told him how about Aidan Wyatt, because we both like the name Aidan, but now he still is saying Wyatt for the first name, and everytime we talk about it, he gets all sad and tries to give me a guilt trip about not naming the baby Wyatt, Is there anything similar to Wyatt or any other way I could compromise?? anyone have any suggestions??
If you can't both agree on it then I don't see why he should get the pick. I really like Aidan Wyatt. I was going to suggest Wyatt for a middle name. My DH and I rarely agree and I basically told him what the kids name will be LOL I know it sounds mean but I told him that if he wants to carry the baby for 9 mos and give birth and stay home with him/her then he can name the kid whatever he wants LOL
Anyway don't let him guilt you into a name that you really don't like. I think the middle name is a good compromise.
A name I really like is Wyatt Spencer...maybe you just haven't found the middle name to go with wyatt that makes it appeal to you yet.
If you are really set on compromising with dh, then sit him down and tell him that you're fine with using Wyatt, but only as a middle name and that you have a say in it too. Then again you could just keep hushed and when they ask you the baby's name for birth certificate time you tell them what name you want.... DH might get mad for a while, but you can say that its the epidurals fault LOL!!!!
I agree with Christa and Michelle. In the case of me and my hubby, I told him my ideas and he let me know what he thought. If I liked it a lot and he didn't really like it, I told him so. For awhile we were considering Gabriel for a boys name and he liked it but it didn't really sound right to me. I told him and he accepted it, and then we ended up deciding to commemorate his grandfather without using his exact name (e.g. Grandfather's name is Bernard but he goes by Ben so I thought up Benjamin and he liked it).
I hope you and your hubby work this out. Good Luck with everything!
AJ (age 7) & Katie (age 2.5) PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
