My DH and I aren't pregnant... yet, but we've been talking about what kinds of names we like and I've found out that our styles are completely different! I like older sounding names like Agnes or Edmund and he likes names like Brittany or Jake.

Here are some that we might be able to compromise on, I'd like to know some good first name/middle name combinations.

Boy Names:

Charles (family name)
Eldon (family name)
Otis (family name)
Leroy (family name)
Peter
Shawn (family name)
Ammon (Pronounced "am-un". This is the name of a figure from the Book of Mormon that I really admire. My DH is against it because he doesn't want our child to be identified as LDS by his name. But I love it! And I'm going to fight for it as at least a middle name.)
Ruben
Reuel (I'm only going to get away with this as a MN too)
Gregory
Fred
Phillip

Boy Names I like that DH doesn't:

Oscar
Manley
Edmund
Gideon
Ira
Silas
Gilbert
Hugo
Alphonse
Reeve

Girl names we can compromise on (maybe):

Sarah
Clara
Alice
Stella
Lucy
Molly
Audrey
Suzanna
Felicity
Theressa, Tressa, Tressie, Tessa (variants of a family name)
Nancy

Girl names I like that DH doesn't:

Georgianna
Viola
Flora
Hattie
Hazel
Etta
Zina
Peninah
Aurora
Nora
Verity
Mercy
Vera
Petra

So what do you think of this list of names? Did any of you have trouble coming to a consensus like this?

you're lucky he is even talking about it. most men don't even want to talk about it until you're halfway through the pregnancy, at least. but honestly, you only ever need to agree on a small handful of names... and the names you love change over time. no use fighting and arguing over something that might not even be what you want in the future.

a good way to compromise on names is you each write a list of the names you love and would want to use... and then you rate them how much you love them from 1 to 5. have your hubby make a same list... then you exchange lists and rate what you think the names are 1 to 5. you'll have some interesting results. everything is about compromise. don't expect him to be the only one who has to compromise.
