Hi everyone we had our baby boy ten days ago. We named him Matthew Curtis. I am having a hard time and regretting naming the baby Matthew because I hate the name Matt. Husband is against changing the name. Wondering how to deal with this because I do not want to hate this child or call him baby. I can't get past the name Matt

I didnt see this that your hubby is against changing the name... maybe you should sit and calmly tell him you really want to change his name and need his support on this... if its what you want. Explain to him everything you are feeling. gl hun

Could you give him another nick name? I know that probably sounds funny but my son goes by bugga or bugga boo more than his name. He could also go by his middle name if you wanted. My DH does that. His first name is never used, not even at work. Just some options if the hubby is against changing it.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

Can you call him Curtis?
I would suggest changing his name entirely, but since you did pick the name you must have liked it at one time. Is it possible that you will like it again?
