  • I don't kow, but why would you want to name your child something that your DH is so against......it is his child too, ya know? How would you feel if he named the child something you despised?

  • He can't make you change the name since the name is up to the mother. But, if you really love your DH, not trying to agree on a name will cause huge problems in your marriage. do you really want to kill your relationship with your DH over a name?

  • don't think so! Whoever happens to be filling out the paperwork at the hospital can pick the name, but it can always be changed. I'm not sure if both mom and dad need to okay that though.

  • It is his child too, why shouldn't he have some say on the name as well? I don't see going to court over a name even if you can.

  • i think you both should stop being stubborn control freaks and find a name you can both agree on. what's going to happen when you actually have to parent the child??

  • i understand that! my brother has been having the same problems. have you thought about compermising? using his name as a middle and one of your names as the first? i'm not sure what your hubbys name is so i don't know if you tried that. but why did you pick those names? just wondering. we named our oldest, which is a girl after her grandfathers, our dads. it comes out as charlie john. charana janee. maybe you could find another name that means the same as your husbands. we have a friend who named her one child raven and the other corben. corben is another for of raven. hope it works out.
