  • HELL NO!!! We are 50/50 or I am naming. He Didn't make and carry the baby alone. I carried it and had help making. Therefore, we share or I do it all.

  • nope. I told hime him that when he could grow it and birth it and nurse, then he could name it.

    We choose our names together.

  • Honestly it is better for you both to choose a name. Pick a couple you really like and present them to him. You could also pick a middle name, if he is so head strong on the first name...

  • I remember when hubs and I were trying to think of names for our kids.... it was hard to come up with names we both liked and would agree to especially on boy names. If you can't come up with names you both like, could you come up with a compromise-- like 1 of you pick the 1st name, the other pick the middle?

  • My husband and I agreed on the names of our daughters. I will admit that he gave me a little bit more choosing power, but I didn't keep any name on the list that he didn't like also. Couples should compromise and find names they both love. It's not like there's not enough names out there to choose from. Good luck!

  • My ex husband picked out the first names of our two children and I picked out the rest. The names their dad picked are not bad.
