We're not pregnant yet, but we've been talking about names (we're planners) and my husband really wants to name our first boy after himself, which I can't stand. I cannot imagine naming a baby after his father for a plethora of reasons - when I call out the name, who answers? What if, heaven forbid, we get divorced somewhere down the road and I still have to call my son my husband's name??
I just don't want to name my <potential> boy after my husband - so much so that I'm praying for only girls. My husband is the third in line of his name, but different middle names, so he's not "the third" and our son would not be "the fourth" - but "Junior." Something else I can't stand. This is something that my family pointedly DOESN'T do, and something his family definitely does. Where do you draw the line?
Someone else must've run into this. Please help!
