Am I being inconsiderate?

My dh & I are having our first little boy.
We can't agree on names. I really like different names that no one really has. I tried to be considerate & pick names out with him. Kai is the name that I love. He wants to choose the middle name & he wants it to be James, which is his middle name. I hate it. It ruins the whole name. We can't agree on names. Would it be selfish if J just sign the name on the birth certificate?

Kids rarely go by their first and middle names, so why does it matter?

Besides, Kai and Jay are two main characters from Lego Ninjago. That could lead to teasing.

Well yes. It would be. It's his baby as well. You both need to compromise on a name. 

It would be a bitch move to just sign whatever you want. I'd be pissed if I was him and you did that. 

Oh and my son is in HS and has quite a few classmates named Kai. Just FYI.

Yes thats HIS son too. Grow up and let him pick the middle name. Its NOT all about what YOU want. You are a parent act like one and not some selfish child who only wants HER way.

how often do you really plan on using his middle name? Most people don't everyday. and you chose the first name you wanted but wont compromise with middle name? so much so you want to take that away from your husband? that's very selfish
