    Default Do you ever think about names?

    With DS, I loved the name and he liked it, but it grew on him so we agreed that it was the perfect name. But now it's hard to think of boy names because it seems like DS's name is the only one we could ever agree on!
    The other day I mentioned to DH a couple of names that I loved and he promptly dismissed them and mentioned some names that he *kinda liked*... why would my names that I LOVE be dismissed so quickly to make place for names he "kinda liked"?


    Do you and your SO/DH ever talk about names? Who gets final say? Do you think it's important to discuss names before there is even a baby to name, or does that kind of thing wait until you're actually pregnant?

    what is your list of names, Al?

    Both our girls I picked the names for. Greg is pretty agreeable and I even picked the names for our potential new baby and he likes them. I really think that the mom should have the final say. Not sure why but I just do.

    I love talking about baby names.

    All. The. Time.!!

    I've recently had two dreams about having boys and not having names picked out when they were born. And then, either later in the same dream or even another dream, a name is discussed, but not quite finalized. Weird.

    When I'm awake, I think more about girls names. I think because I would like a boy so my mind keeps thinking girl (that's what happened last time) But mostly I've been thinking about middle names rather than first names. Again, weird.

    We know the names for our next and final child. If it is a boy, his name will be Kevin Michael, and if it is a girl her name will be Kelsey no middle name as of yet. Both of our DD's names have K's. I choose the names, and my DH usually loves them.

    Not frequently but every so often we do. SO is more about voicing names he doesn't like, which usually end up being names I'm not a fan of either so it usually works out. I have one girls name that I'm in love with but haven't told SO and probably won't until we're TTC (a little superstitious but I don't want to jinx it ).

    Final say will probably depend on gender. I'm so set on my girls name that I will give SO the opportunity to come up with a boys name.

    We talk about it occasionally. I think chances are pretty good if we end up with a boy we will name him Chester, after my DH's granddad, although there are a couple other names on the boy list. For a girl, the name Jillian has been on my list all three times... I think DH is starting to come around on that one. We'll see.

    Every time I hear or see a name that I like i write it down. Then every once in a while I look at it again and take off the names that I don't like anymore!! If we have a boy next time I would like to name him Ian Davis.

    Girls names are harder, just cause there are so many great ones but right now my favorite name is Delilah. Not sure on middle name yet.

    Yup, we have a girls name left over from Ronin which are using for the next baby if it's a girl (Abigail Jean, I hate the middle name but had to compromise because hubby let me use the middle names I wanted for Ronin). Hubby is dead set on a second girls name being Amber which I am not fond of and I like Ruby, but we can't use it as a middle name with an A first name (initials would be ARS). We have no back up boys names, Ronin's name we agreed on first time didn't even have to go through baby names to choose it, I saw it in a novel I was reading and it was perfect and hubby agreed. We have tossed a few names around since, but nothing works.
