Catastrophic failure.

week one: Alanna was technically my pick even though DH suggested it because it is my fav name ever! However DH and I write stories together and that is one of our main heriones names so it is kind of off limits.

Week two: Wayne's pick, he chose Eleanor. Which I am luke warm on. (Eleanor Mortimore)

Week three: I let Quinn pick and she picked Wayne's number one fav name ever Victoria. Which I don't want to use because it is my SIL name.

Week four: My pick I am liking Zinnia, but I know Wayne dislikes it so when we talked about names on Sunday I offered Zinnia or Arabella. Wayne like neither of them and suggested Penelope which IS a name on my short list. But the point of it being my pick is it being the name I want to test drive.

So of course I am all pithy Dh shooting down my recommendations, and not recommending anything or being open to any other names than the two he has already declared for.

I was so tempted to tell him never mind I tell him what I picked after I fill out the birth certificate.

So baby had no name this week.

Penelope is cute! If it's on your list and he likes it, then it could be on your guys short-short list.

Penelope's a pretty name.

Do you have anything else you're leaning towards on your list?

I really like Penelope.

Tell him to pick 4 or 5 other names, aside from the two he already has. And you narrow your list down to 4 or 5 as well. And try those out. You one week, him the next.

A perfect name will come to you guys eventually. Don't get so caught up over it being a name you pick vs. a name he picks. Work on finding a name that you BOTH like. It's better to name your child a name both mom and dad like, than a name that mom loves and dad hates. Right?

The issue with Penelope is not that I don't like it it that DH doesn't like it. He just dislikes new suggestions more.,
