There's a first for everything!

This is the first time DH and I have not argued over a boy name. I swear it takes a load off. He doesn't like my choice of Declan Joseph, but since DS2 is his namesake he's throwing me a bone LOL. I know his family won't like it, but I'm in LOVE with Irish names, IN LOVE. DS1 is Aidan and I wanted Declan for DS2 but since I got my way the first time I threw him a bone last time hahahaha. SO YAY!! Seriously the boy name fight caused a near fake divorce both times LOL. We've known our girl name from the start and both loved it so that was a non issue.

PS, the reason he's not arguing is he likes to nickname the kids, and by nickname, he will call them that name and nothing else, and they answer to it. SD is nicknamed Petro (after a gas station called Petro Canada LOL) and DS1 is nicknamed Dewey (he always wanted a Dewey like the kid from the show Malcolm in the middle) I didn't allow a nickname for DS2 because he HAD to name him after himself so that was the trade off (although he still calls him Willy and it seems to me like he's calling him penis LOL) So I'll be interested to see what he names this one.

That's amazing! The names are the hardest part. I'm so glad he's letting you decide for this one!

I love Declan! And your girl's name is a fave too Wink

Allie,

I love your whole post! The last part especially made me laugh. I know exactly how you feel. DH and I have agreed on a few girls names for this baby, but the only one boy name I want, he doesn't want. Its caused many an argument. I am hoping that I will get my way eventually, so we will see. We are being surprised and DH thinks that we are having a girl only so I don't get my way with the boy name. But if its a boy, I really hope he will give in. Smile

By the way, I LOVE the name Declan! Glad he is giving you that one. Smile

I've seen the name Declan pop up often lately... but I've never actually heard it. How do you pronounce it??

I really wish that DH would be more open minded with names - if he wasn't so adamant that our LO's name has to start with a J, we could really have so much more fun naming this baby... *sigh*

ROFL to the whole post! Sounds like great fun in your house!

My DH named our last, a girl. Her first name was his g-ma's name and her middle name is his mom's name so since he got that one I fully expect I won't have a single issue naming this LO myself. I mean, he can have some input and throw some names out there but in the end he'll bow down to whatever I choose. Even with DD2, after he saw what I did to get her here I could've probably named her anything I wanted to and he wouldn't have said squat!

It's pronounced Dek-Lan. I once read a romance novel and the main character's name was Declan, this was eons ago and I've been in love with the name ever since. The character was black Irish, Black hair and peircing blue eyes, I just fell in love with him LOL.
