Dh and I are having a very hard time with girl names...we had no issues with our son and had a boy named picked out for this one.
He wants to use Blythe. I do not like it... it is too unusual for me.
I want to use Claire. He does not like it... says the breakfast club "fat girl" joke will cause teasing.
We can come up with 3 compromise names that both of us could likely live with, but each have a downside.
We have went through a 500 page babybook and not found anything else and spent in total about 15 hours on nymbler... so it not like we have not thought of other options... we just don't like anything.
The compromise names are below (and the downsides).
Sydney Claire- cute, like... worried it is trendy and I usually hate trendy, but this name for some reason does not bother me. Just worried I will regret later... DH has no rerservations and likes it a lot (it is his 2nd choice name after Blythe which I veto).
Emma Alexandra-- ok. Don't think i would regret, but it is just ok. Emma is so popular and she does not "feel" like an Emma to me. Both of us are ok with it, neither really likes it.
Katherine Claire-- classic ok name. Won't regret it. have no emotional attachement to it. Dh also very neutral on it. I absolutely hate Kathy, Kit, and Katie as nicknames. Don't love Kat or Kate, but could deal with it if someone called her that.
We have thrown around Lily (but I don't want to use nickname as full name and he hates Lillian or Lilliana), Nora (but our son's name is Nicholas and we don't like the Nick and Nora movie reference), and Alexandra (but with Nicholas sounds like we are naming after Russian czars).
Which would you pick and why?
