I chose her last name (mine), and ex chose her first and middle. (it fit her so well I couldn't argue)

My three kids birth mother's picked their first names, I picked my son's middle name and my twins picked their own middle names. (They had just turned 10 so I left it up to them)

me. hubby REFUSED to give an opinion. It irritated the crap out of me. Nothing was set in stone until after the baby was born though (partially because we chose to wait to find out the gender at the birth...no point getting stuck on a boy name and finding out it's a girl and I don't really like unisex names)

I did.

I made a list, SO went through it and I picked a name he also agreed to. I picked his middle name on my own.

Well, I named our ds. He was named after my deceased step-dad (who I was very close with) and my real dad. I chose our dd's first name, and we compromised on our dd's middle name. My dh chose the middle name and I chose the spelling. :)

My husband had a particular name that he really wanted to name a son if he had one, and luckily I loved the name too, so he named our first son I guess! We were thinking of lots of names for my second pregnancy (surprise delivery) and he again came up with a name that I agreed on and loved. :)

Quoting xtwistedxlovex:

I did...sort of. DF and I couldn't find a name we both liked. We had finally agreed on one and he decided at the last minute he didn't like it after all o.O DS just looked like his name should be Andrew. I mentioned that to DF and he agreed, so that's what we named him.


when the vital records person came into my hospital room and asked the name, I said "Zoe" and she goes "ohhh she LOOKS like a zoe!"

uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh okay then.
