I'm due any day now and still no name, impossible husband...!

We can't possibly agree on a name. We've been thinking all month , he has some names in mind and i have some names in mind. But we can't agree. What should we do, pick one on neither list? I'm getting angry, I told him to not make me name without his consent, lol, n to not tick me off.

  • What about picking one name from each list that go together...you pick one from yours and let him pick one from his...put them together....and consent to have a vote on cm as to which name sounds better to go first.....whichever name gets most votes is the one you both agree on ! ??? lol best of luck ! I loved picking names.....but like you, i also had an impossible husband....lol....my youngest girl got her name on the day she was born ! yikes !

  • ...or if you don't know the sex of the baby, one gets to name it if a girl, the other gets to name it if a boy ????

  • I got to pick the girl name, and hubby did the boy name.. then when we found out it was a girl, I let him choose the spelling for her name. If you already know sex, that won't work for you guys.

  • i didn't have one picked out for any of our daughters until the night i went into the hospital! i took a marker to the baby book and blacked out all the names that is in our family.

  • Find the least objectionable name on his list and let him find the least objectionable name on your list and put them together.

  • Don't fret so much. When you see your baby you'll know what name will suit her and since he is not the one that going to give birth  his vote doesn't count.  ;-)  GL

  • What are your guys' choices? Maybe someone can suggest similar names with a twist :)
