A boy's name

Ok, tell me what you think of the name Lincoln Maximus? I HATE IT but my husband and his brothers and father say it's the best name they've ever thought of. The entire Sunday dinner they would not shutup about this name! I mean they really like it! All the men in his family (he has a huge family) are all about this name now, saying if we don't use it then they will when they have a son. Is it not rediculous? Am I the only person who thinks this name is dumb, lol?

So now I'm trying to convince my hubby it's a no-go, we're sticking with Evan (none of the men in his family like Evan, they say it's "fruity"-for lack of a better word)

  • I don't like neither of your choices, sorry!! But since you do like the name Evan, I would try to meet him in the middle and name him Evan Maximus or something.

    Here are some boy names I love:

  • Nope not alone, thats a messed up name. They are threatening to use the name if you don't so I say LET 'EM. LOL you can even tell them that they like the name sooo much that you feel wrong in using it.

  • Lol mrspierce06 that's a good idea. Bobby just said he's getting sick of his family trying to get him to change the name, he says he's sticking with Evan too yay! I've always liked that name. Plus it's not too popular but it's not weird enough to make fun of. I didn't want to choose a name I've heard a billion times the last couple of years, like Aiden or Logan...

  • I ended up with 3 girls and if had a boy I would have gone with the name Nicklous Riley. I did not get a son but our last girl still has the middle name riley.

  • I think it is weird.

    Answer by CometGirl at 7:02 PM on Sep. 30, 2010

  • I like Maximus, but not Lincoln. I think it's just because I like the name Max. lol.
    But it's your child and the name decision should be between you and the baby's father. Not all of the men in your family. lol.

    But trust me, I know how crazy husband's baby name ideas can be. My husband wants to name our first son Ezra and I'm like hell no! lol.

  • No, no, no! LOL I would convince your hubby and let the other men use the name if they love it SOO much (and IF the mom would agree! lol) It reminds me of a car! haha If they don't like Evan, OH-well!! Not their kid! HAHA
