Was there a name that you really wanted for your child, but gave it up because DH didn't like it? What was the name?

  • Aiden Allister.

    I wanted our first child to have that name if it was a boy, but we ended up having a girl. My DH hated the name, so I threw it out the window and started from scratch. He wanted the name Ezra, but I HATE that name. So we eventually decided on Brayden Thomas and thankfully our daughter ended up being a girl because I hate the name Brayden now!

  • I wantted Andrew Dean, Andrew after my grandpa, Dean after my dad (both middle names) But Dh didnt like Dean, and my dad said he didnt like it growing up either, so I compromised with Andrew Ryan
