His choice vs. My choice

My husband is usually pretty laid back and doesn't get fired up about things... like baby names, but we are in a constant battle lately over what we should name our daughter due in October. I'm stuck on Kaitlyn Claire. Claire is my grandmother's name and I just think Kaitlyn is beautiful. My husband hates it! As for his choice? Well, he likes Annabelle. He's ok with Claire, however. So, um, who should win this battle? :-)

I like them both. I know thats no help LOL With all of mine we made a deal before finding out. If it was a boy he would name it and a girl would be named by me. My fate? All boys LOL

Maybe change it so Claire is the first name and let him pick the middle?

Sounds like a logical solution, but after hours upon hours of browsing baby name websites and hearing "no, no, no" -- I'm feeling a little frustrated! It shouldn't be this difficult. Should it?

you should both agree on the name of your child. it might not be the top of either list, but both should be in agreement.

That's a bright idea, but our last name is one syllable. It doesn't flow well.
