Reasons Your SO/DH Shoots Your Names Down

What are the reasons your SO/DH doesn't like the names you choose? Do they just say no or do they have reasons? S/O is hilarious about my name choices so it's hard to get frustrated at him.

Me: "What about Sam for a boy?"
S/O: "No. My cousins GF is Sam and she's a trashy bitch."

Me: "What about Roman?"
S/O: "Gross, are you serious?"

Me: "What about Beau?"
S/O: "That's a douchebag name."

He's too funny to get mad at. Whatever, Roman is awesome.

Re: Reasons Your SO/DH Shoots Your Names Down

  • Mine says I like "old lady shit" so he shot down Alfred (call him Alfie), Edward, Charlotte, etc.

    But he LOVES Alice and George so go figure.

  • One of my top names is Maren. DH says it's made up.

    Meanwhile, his favorite girl name is Madison. Go figure.

  • S/O has come up with Timber or Roe for a boy. Which I don't dislike, but then Ke$ha ruined the name Timber with that stupid song, so now we nixed it.

    And I like Roe but spelled Row only and he said no.

    UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

    My DH's go-to is "Not a fan".

    He is more concerned with our kid being "cool" at school. One name he suggested was Colton and thought it would be so awesome because all of his friends would call him "Colt".

    I told him today that picking out a name for our kid isn't the same as picking out a gamer tag for xbox.

    We call my cousin Colton Colt!

    Or Coltie was his baby nickname, he's 24 now but whatever, I'll call him Coltie forever.

    I grew up as the 3rd Jaime in a 20 kid class all throughout elementary school so I am dead-set on a non-Top 100 name. At first I liked Colton, then:

    -My sister's friend has a 2 month old named Colton

    -My dentist mentioned someone she knows who named their baby Colton

    -This douchbag that is dating our friend said he liked Colton

    -It is in the top 50 boy names for 2013

    -Now you mentioning yet another Colton in the world....

  • The one I can think of was Harper, and the reason was Stephen Harper. He ruins everything.

    At least your DH didn't suggest Clinton (for the same political reason)...

    DH has been pretty cool about most names, except the one name I am absolutely in love with (Noah). He says it is too feminine and biblical and "Why don't we just build him an ark?" Yeah, ok buddy. He has also really been into Joseph Jeremiah lately...I told him not to even go there.

  • When I suggested Dylan for a girl, he told me to just buy her army boots and black framed glasses now. He hated Gideon, Oliver, Theodore, Seth, and Frederick. He just says the name over and over getting more incredulous with each repetition< then finally says no. I hate him.

    The response I got from DH when I suggested Dylan, "90210 much?"

  • @beckynsean11 That's what my DH does! He's convinced that if we name our child Gianna, she will become a stripper named Gigi Spark (Spark is a play off our last name).

  • We're just starting to talk about names. DH seems to take every name I've ever liked and decide that they'll be made fun of for it. Ex: Lucy = "Loose" He's also nixed anything starting with a P because our last name starts with P and he doesn't want them to be called "PP" because he's 7 I guess. 

    Although he seems to think we're from Jersey Shore and keeps suggesting things like Giovanni and Gianni. 

    Also, @dorothyzbornak97 - blasphemy! I'm a Lindsay!!! :)
    Hahaha!

    My DH is a teacher, so he always vetos names based on students he has had. 

    Me: How about "Ethan"
    DH: No. I have an Ethan in class. He's a douchebag.

    Edit: misspelled veto...

  • Me: "How about Piper?"

    DH: "Oh sure. Then if she's pretty, the boys will all say they want to Pipe-Her"

    Me: "IF she's pretty?"

    DH: ::rolls eyes::

    Me: "What about Magdalene?"

    DH: "Do you want her to be a Polish cleaning lady?"

    Me: "That's racist.  How about August?"

    DH: "I seriously think you want our kid to be made fun of."

    Grrrr.

    Oh my God, hahahaha.
