Ok so now that we are pretty sure it is a girl (due in July) I have asked my husband to help me think of names. I like names like cadence, lydia, Jade, etc... obviously a little different but pretty- musical. So he has started helping and I am soooo happy he is giving input, but I HATE his name choices... Julie (which i could handle if we could use Juliana) Laura, Stephanie.... sigh.. so I am so glad he's helping I don't want to tell him I can't stand those names, I know if i do he'll shut down and stop helping-
also just for the record- he shot down every name idea of mine with an "eh"
I need help reaching a compromise... not all of my name choices are unusual. My current two children are named Krista Lynn, and Faith Elizabeth (different father)... so I am open to compromise....

Honestly I think respect and commitment is the foundation of any marriage...
You can be honest if you do it respectfully and stay committed to find something you both like.
We have had a girls name picked out since we got married. It wont happen :) All men in his family. But we just kept at it with boy's names until we found something perfect. If you are brain storming, I don't see the nescesity in saying "I hate what you are coming up with" because if you do you might stunt his creative thought and miss out on something you would have really liked, kwim?
