  • Kind of.
    I wanted Olivia for my daughter then a couple days before she was born hubby tells me he hates he name. So i wanted MaKayla next but hubby hated the ma in front so we removed it and now have Kayla. With my son I wanted Conner or Liam. Hubby hated both and wanted Caleb or Loyd. I hated both so I choose Conner because he liked that better then Liam but I refused to go with the names he picked. Especially Loyd. Now we are both very happy with our choices because the names go perfect with our kids.

  • Neither of us liked the names each other picked, so we sat down and went through names until we finally agreed on one.

  • I liked the name Kane for a long time... but, I didn't think I liked it for a name for my child. It was the only name my husband liked besides Ryder... I really wanted to add a Y into Kane... So, It just came out to Kayne Ryder... but, his name fits him so much.

  • J got just the names I wanted!!! I only gave my DH choices of names I liked for my DD... so I got what I wanted!! There was NO discussion on my son's name.. both our dads passed so I was having a sin named after my Dad no matter what!!! So I suggested we should name our son after both our dads.... Jonathan Donald... AKA JD ;o)
