Ok we have yet to officially name Liam, his BC still states Baby boy. My husband chose this name it was what he wanted. He wanted his son to have his first name because it is his mother’s maiden name and I made a list of name I liked and from there he chose Liam. I liked Liam but really wanted Edward or Phineaus. So needless to say we have never agreed on his name. Well now he wants to change it! He wants to use his father’s middle name in there and give Liam 4 names because he is the last baby and he feels we need to honor our families. Ok so he wants it to be Michael Denman ________  Fisher and I choose the blank name and the name we call him. But this kinda pisses me off why couldn’t he asked for this while I was pregnant because I would not have chosen Liam but now to me that’s my son’s name and so I could either add another name making it a grand total of 5 or use Liam and not have a family name of mine in there. What would you do? Would you change your son’s name… he is 3.5 months old or would you stick with what you originally agreed on despite your husband’s plea to use his father’s middle name or What???

Ok he is 3.5 months old and still don't have a name...???

I would tell dh that you have a right also. Pick the name you want and just go with that.

ALL my boys have four names.

Your child needs a full name he is almost 4 months old. Not judging but your dh needs to get over it being all about his family and name help name his son.

No way I would not change my son's name. IMO once the baby is born and you give him a name it's final. Especially nearly 4 months later. It will be really hard and weird to start calling your son you know as Liam by a different name and quite possibly confusing for little Liam.

I think Liam IS his name! :-) You can "name" him whatever you want.....what will stick is what you "call" him...well, that's already established, right? I do think Liam goes well with Michael or Denman. The act of using someone's (a relatives) name is to honor that person...oftentimes I think it is used as a middle name. IDK...good luck!!!
