For some reason I know lots and lots of little Liams. (Some parents care about how popular a name is, some don't, just thought I'd weigh in.)
Also, with the dh thing, I've found that if I suggest a name he doesn't like, I wait about a month without talking about it and then ask him again. With a couple of names, he's liked them better hearing them the 2nd or 3rd time around b/c he's more familiar with it. (in my experience, lots of guys immediately object to unfamiliar names.)
I like it a lot, but there are a million little Liam's in my neck of the woods. That doesn't matter to everyone, but there you go.
As for getting DH to agree...I have no idea. My top ten names were all blackballed by him.
I actually love the name Liam. It is high on my list of boy names. I only know one Liam and I went to college with him.
EmmaRain:I like Liam as a nickname for William. That way there is the option of William, Will, or Liam.
Me too! It's one of our top contenders.
PK2:It's a very Irish name to me...anyone I know with this name is Irish but it has definitely become a "mainstream" name
Part of the reason I like it is because I am Irish.
