Why ...

Must dh hate every name I like?!?? My two favorite names are Kelsey and Harper and he hates them both. I'm not sure this baby will ever have a name!

Don't feel bad! I am a few weeks ahead of you, and we are no closer to a name than when we started out. We actually have been fighting about it tonight...

I do really like Harper!

Oooh, I love Harper! Doesn't go with my last name though. Blum 3

I have a tendency to veto every name as well. It's a miracle we've found one of each that we are both okay with (and still missing a middle for a boy). Hope you guys can find something soon that you are both okay with! And maybe you'll have that "AHA" moment when the baby is born and you'll both just know.

Sorry it's not easy :bighug:
Hope you can figure it out soon though. We still haven't really looked at any new name options for this baby. I've really got to work on that.

We never decide "for sure" until we meet baby. This time is the first time we have pretty much come to a decision beforehand, but we still aren't saying "for sure" until he is here.

I like those names!!!

DOn't worry, we didn't decide on DS's name till I was in labor. Wink Dh hated everything I liked, and he only wanted one name. It was very frustrating and caused a lot of fights

Noelle, we didn't decide on Aidan's name until I was in labor either! We seem to have a harder time with each pregnancy. Anyway, we've had a first name picked out for a while this time, which is a miracle. No middle name yet, but I'm less concerned about that.

I have two names I really like and he has one he really likes. We do not like each others names, at all! Now the last two weeks ha has insisted on choosing a name that starts with a "K". Not because he likes a particular one. I don't want to chose a name based on the letter it starts with, and not like it. It has gotten to the point with us now that he jut makes up stupid names just to make me mad! It is so frustrating I know!

I've got a friend who was supposed to be a scheduled 39 week c/s and she went into labor at 36 weeks. Baby didn't have a name for over a week! Theybjust werent ready with a name yet. It happens. Smile

As for me, choosing names has been the only time in our marriage that I have doubted my commitment to and love for Jon. It gets really ugly around here during name choosing! We rarely disagree and generally get along wonderfully bit omg naming a child brings out the ugly in us!

We have this problem too and I'm hoping I can sway DH when baby is here. Hang in there - you'll agree on something! (even if it's after she's born...)

Thanks y'all ... I'm sure she won't be nameless forever, but in the meantime he's making me crazy!!!!

I think the only reason we "agree" so well this time is because I am pretty much giving in and letting DH pick the name :rolleyes: He's just so set on his name choice and it's been gradually growing on me for months. So even though it's not my favourite, I'm sure I'll be fine with it. Actually.....I don't even think I HAVE a favourite. We are running out of "E" names!
