We can't name our kid because of a project at work?

We are pregnant with our first son and I suggested a name my DH loves it but says we can't use that name because its the name of a project at work. He says if we chose that name the guys at work we think we named out son after a project and he will never hear the end of it.

I think its silly but he's not budging.

The name is Robert

Is he being silly or does he have a point?

Use it as a middle name.

You know I hadn't even thought about that, I was just so caught up in his reasoning I didn't even think about the middle name. Hopefully he will go for that, he never had to mention the middle name at work.

No >:-/

I really want to know the name, but understand you reason for not wanting to disclose.

I get his point about the name being the same as the project and him not wanting to be perceived as a copycat or a suck-up at work.  Can the name be used for the middle name instead?

Whatever drama queen. If its a common name it's nothing special

Um... that's an odd reason not to use the name. I'd tell dh to suck it up and use the name. Or use it as a middle name?
