Ok Ive been sitting here at work (bored) thinking about the baby boy's names. I posted suggestions a week ago about the names Cody Haden Max and Matthew. Then me and DH were talking and I mentioned that we can name the baby after him (his name is Shad) I wouldnt (really) have too much of a problem with it. But is that too old fashioned. Reading other posts I havent come across too many (or any) JR's. What do you think??
I personally would never have a JR. My ex was a jr & went by his middle name. It was a huge pain in the butt. Other people would always get confused when I called him by his middle name. Like when we went through the IVF process. The nurse nearly freaked because all the medical records used his legal 1st name & then I called him by his middle. I called him by his middle name because that's how he was introduced to me.
My DH is the III and our first son will be a IV! I am all for tradition, and I think it is a way of honoring those we love. My DH was very fond of his grandfather who was the original AJ! We will even be using the nick name AJ (as my DH goes by Tony or TJ)!
A neighbor of my in-laws has a grandson that is named Sean Andrew and his father's name is Andrew Sean. That is an option, just reverse DH's order of names.
It all depends on your preference. If you don't mind having a Jr, then go for it. If you would still like to use your DH's name, there is always the possibility of using his first or middle name for one of the childs names.
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.
I am not a fan of Jr's or Thirds. I worked in finance for years and years and I saw many a credit report that was a complete disaster where they would get it all messed up and have them mixed together or someone else's credit in the others. You can always use the name and give them a different first or middle name, and it still honoring the person, but then your child still has a name of their own. That is just my opinion.
I'm not a fan because like Teresa said, I have heard that it can cause major credit messups. My friend named her son after his father and she regrets it now. She just said it is annoying to have 2 the same name, she always has to specify which one she is talking about.
If you like it you should definetly go for it.but i personally dont jr's thirds fourths etc... my Df and i are considering using both of our middle names as our childs middle name if its a boy the middle name will be W. after Df and Marie after me..Good luck picking something.
