First Disagreement with DH..Boy Names UPDATE Post #10!
So, the thought of having 5 boys is exciting! We had never discussed what we would name a boy. DH really wants a Jr. I am so so against this. Every part of me is screaming no to this.
We discussed making our first child a Jr. and both agreed not to for various reasons. The issue never came up with #2, 3 or 4. So when he all of a sudden brought it up with this LO, I was a bit shocked. I believe a Jr. should be your first born son. That's MY opinion...of course, DH's is different.
Okay, this reason is a little superficial and silly, but... Every "Jr." I know personally or know of (famous or infamous) is either dead or has major issues in life. My cousin, Jr... "issues". My Uncle "Jr.".... dead, My other uncle "Jr." - On dialysis... I could keep going with my family. What about Martin Luther King Jr? JFK Jr? Bruce Lee Jr? What about Ray Parker Jr?..what ever happened to him?
I just can't see me calling my son "Jr." or "Little BJ"! I believe he should have his own identity. His own name.
So, I think I'm gonna propose a comprimise. DH's name is Byron, middle name, Gerard. Let's make that a hypenated middle name and work on a first name together. It is his last son..our last child. I think it would be special. I hope he's open to the idea.
Thanks for letting me vent a little...
