So, with 5 days til my induction DH tells me he's changed his mind on the name Blakely and doesn't want to use it. He's really pushing for Piper which I like but I really loved Blakely. Our middle name choice was Amaris which means promised by God. He said he'd also be good with Amaris Piper. I like it, but I'm just not sure. Did he really have to wait until NOW to tell me this??? I'm pretty sure it's a boy so I;m probably stressing for nothing but if it is a girl, I hate not having something picked. Thoughts?
Amaris Piper is a really cool name IMO. I would be frustrated if I were you too though. I have my heart set on the name we already picked out and if DH wanted to change it then I would be soooooo upset. Maybe you should just wait until after you've delivered the baby and then say, "Please can we name her Blakely?" (If it ends up being a girl.) That's what my friend did and her husband was totally willing to say yes after she gave birth. A little manipulative..? Yes, but her husband has never regretted their name choice now that it's actually their baby's name.
I started telling a few people what I thought her name would be and they started calling her that and now I am on the fence again. So I give up! With my other 2 I had to meet them first and sometimes the original name didn't fit.
GL! I love all your name choices! Maybe the right one will present itself then.
Thanks ladies! I'm going to try and not stress over it and like you all said, when the baby's is born, if it's a girl, hopefully the name will just be clear
Yep, I'd just keep all of those in mind at birth and if it's a girl you'll probably be more apt to know which one is right! It's so easy to 2nd guess a name. I remembering turning to DH after Aiden was born and telling him that I know he's an Aiden but did we really pick the right name?
