Its a boy and we are willing to compromise on names, but our tastes are different enough that he likes zero of my favorite and while I don't hate his, I don't want those to be my baby's name. He likes uber masculine names (jake) and I like names that are masculine but also have some softer sounds in them (evan). the only one we both like has gone sour with us because I have a cousin with that name (nathan). And I've tried to get help in groups, but they just keep making other suggestions! I KNOW what other names are out there! I don't like them or he doesn't! I just need help knowing where to go from here. I don't see the point in searching over again. I have my top three and he does too. they don't match and now we're stuck. I can't be the only one in the boat, what would you do? ps- we're not having any more so there's no taking turns.Answer Question

Don't limit yourselves to 3 names each. Maybe try listing 10 names each, trade lists and mark out the 5 you like least. Try to give the remaining names a try.
I had the same problem with my husband. I really wanted to name our son Aaron. We ended up with Daniel instead. My husband said the name had to at least have a "manly" nickname, and apparently Dan is a manly name in his book. We didn't settle on his name until the day after he was born either. Naming boys is hard!
