Thought we had it figured out...

So we had the name for this baby all figured out as long as it is a boy:

Dane Michael

now DH decides he likes Seb (not Sebastian just Seb) better. Now I do love the name but think I like Dane more. Then we are talking about his family and he mentions an ex of his sisters named Heath and I am like ohh I like that. The I was at the Disney Store yesterday and Tangled was on and I was reminded of Flynn and I am now like hmm I like that too lol.

So we went from having decided to now I have no clue again, so frustrated. A friends sister had a baby boy on Sat and still has no name for him I can't imagine that at all. Totally stressed about it now. You have until they are 6 weeks old to chose a name here and register there births but don't want to call 'him' it after brith.

I think the only thing we have figured out is we like short names that can't really be shortened.

I do really love it but DH prefers Seb so one of us is gonna have to budge. Never had ts prob before as I can never come up with girls names lol

Oh and no FB comments please, we never tell anyone IRL until baby is here.

It's hard when you think of other names you like. I would stick with the first name you picked. I think when you start thinking about other names it's only because it's a major decision and you second guess. Good luck!

I'm in the same boat. I thought we had names picked out before the anatomy scan, then we both changed our minds, and can't agree on which we like better. I do like all your choices, but Dane is probably tops.

my DH had liked Sebastian but I had never thought of shortening it to Seb, I kinda like it.
Now you are in the same boat as me, sucks huh?!?!?

Well we talked more about it last night. DH doesn't even remember telling me he liked Seb more than Dane lol. We decided Heath is out due to our surname beginning with H so a bit of a mouthful. But now he says he prefers Flynn out of the three names I swear somedays he is more testing than the kids lol

Now my reasoning for being unsure about Flynn is kinda odd. I have a thing with the letter F. To me it is quite a old letter as in most F names are what I call old fashioned name such as Frank, Fred, Florence etc..etc.. and this is the first ever name beginning with F I have liked.
So to me although I love Flynn I prefer Mr D H***** over Mr F H***** if that makes sense lol I know kinda weird

I completely get what you're saying about the letter! I have some letters I prefer over others too and part of what I love about Dane is that it starts with a D lol.
