If DH is a IV... are you kind of obligated to a V?

It's Amon Bernard. Not horrible but I was kind of set on something else... DH is kind of staying out of it...

  • I don't think so. That's one I always said when I had kids- they were not going to be named after either parent.

  • If it's not important to you or your husband, then there's no reason why you'd need to use the name.

  • I've heard a lot of horror stories of mix ups when it comes to naming sons after their fathers. (Esp, w/ social security & credit reports) I would reconsider, and use your husb's 1st or middle name as your child's middle name. Congrats on the new little bundle :)

  • Thats up to you. If you are naming your ds the exact same name then Id add the V. But if you are asking if its necessary to even have a V then thats ur call. I personally know that if I had a ds he would not be named after dh. Not bashing those that do but Id rather choose a new name for my new baby. To each his own! GL

  • Nope! It is YOUR child and you can name him anything that you wish.

  • I think it would be up to your husband.

  • I pretty much agree with everyone else. You aren't obligated to do anything. Naming your child is up to you and your husband, not just you. And from the way it sounds, your husband doesn't really care if it's named after him or not. Naming your child should be something that you both agree on and something that you both like. I don't like the idea of naming my children after my their father or me. Maybe you can give your child their own first name that you and your husband like and then give your child their father's first name as a middle name.
