How long did it take to agree on your children's name?

We had both a boy and a girl name picked out that we agreed upon. However, my mom and dad only had a boy name picked out, no girl name!

  • We have taken turns naming the kids and there was never a moment that we absolutely disagreed on their names. We have Jason, Carson, Gabriella, Olivia, Valerie.

  • We each put down our favorite family names and found the common ones from both lists and then combined them til we found our favorites. With the twins, we had great boys names, but only okay girls names.....Thank goodness. With our daughter - we only came up with a girl name and with our youngest boy - only a boy name.
