DH and I had a very hard time agreeing on names. We were team green and it took us almost my whole pregnancy to find names we both liked. Our boy name wasn't as hard because we were going to use family names. We had two girl names we liked but were unsure on. Well of course it was a girl! lol For a few days she was just Baby [Last Name] because we didn't think she looked like either of the names we had originally thought of. Eventually we settled on Bella. DH really wanted Isabella but I just don't like that name. I don't like the Izz sound and I didn't want her to be called Izzy. So he said ok, what about just Bella.
And so she was named. She is almost 10 1/2 months now, we have her birth certificate, her social insurance number and she has been baptized.
DH ALWAYS brings up the fact that we are limiting our daughter because she doesn't have a long form name. He thought I was see to reason and change her name to Isabella so she has choices. He says we would always call her Bella, and introduce her as Bella. It would be there when she gets older, and he can't believe I'm being so stubborn. But I just don't like the name, and therefore don't want to name my daughter that. He brings it up a lot and I feel like we are just going to have the same fight over and over again.
Even though I would never name my daughter a name I don't like (as I wouldn't expect him to either), what do you think? Would you change you'd child's name at this point?
