Sorry im anon.. i usually always post anon bc my SD mother is on here, and constantly follows me and looks at my stuff & I need some advice..w/o her knowing my business! (:
As many of you have seen, hubby & I are having our first boy in a few months.. and he wants to name him his name and have him be a junior. He suggested calling him Junior, which I dont know, because I had a dog for 10 plus years named Junior. also, I have never really liked the idea of naming a kid something, and giving him a complete different name than whats on his license, birth certificate, and everything. It works for some, but I just find it silly.
His first initial would be B. (very common name, nothing wrong w/ it, but i highly dislike common names where there are a ton of the same kid named that in the same class) not to mention it rhymes w/ my brothers name, so we already get hubby and brother confused. plus, his daughter, my SD, her name starts w/ a B as well, and is the same sound as hubbys...its just too much of the same thing.
So first name beginning w/ a B, (same name as my husbands) and middle name Eugene. Jr. All I get out of that is confusion, made fun of, & BJ=blow job. it would come up, and I dont want people calling my son BJ.
My husband is to the point where he is furious about me not being thrilled about naming my son B.Eugene Jr.
Eugene is a name that I feel like is for the older people, and just isnt anything that I like. I named all my dolls Eugene, and all my puppies, everything growing up was Eugene.. for a joke. that was a name my friends and I always picked when we were being silly, so it brings back memories of JOKES, not something I want for my son.
My husband now has his entire family telling me i am naming my child my husbands exact name. Its very overwhelming, and I know how cruel kids can be.
I grew up on the "in" crowd and hubby grew up on the "out" crowd and was constantly picked on. Esp. for his middle name Eugene. I have seen the way people treat others due to their names that just dont sound right.
I dont know what to do.. make my husband happy, and know what is lying ahead for my son and all the confusion of having so many people w/the same name and same sounding names the rest of our life? My husband wont pick ONE of his names, he has to have them both, he makes things very uncomfortable for me.. wont bother to look at any other names.. or suggestions.. its really hurting my feelings. He is pretty much saying "this is what our sons name will be" and thats it.
I cant believe how much immaturity has came from him over a name. He wont even talk to me about ANYTHING.. I feel like a NAME is really hurting our marriage & he wont talk, wont explain to me why he wants that name so bad, he is too busy getting his family to tell me thats what the name will be.
what do i do? :(
