Baby Name Blunder (Clicky Poll).

I posted this (without the clicky poll) on the 2nd tri board... but... I wanted to see what you gals thought!

So, I am IN LOVE... let me repeat... IN LOVE with the name Carter Seth.  But.  I just learned that DH has an ex girlfriend (that he only dated for a few months... nothing serious)... and Carter is her last name.

I don't know her.  At all.

Would it be stupid to not name our son Carter because of some girl I don't even know, or weird to name him that?

  • I would only have to think about it if it bothered your husband. If not, go for it! Nice name =)

  • I agree. I really like the name, but what does your H think about it?

    Assuming it doesn't bother your husband, who cares?

  • Carter is a common last name.  I think it's fine, unless DH has a problem with it.

  • I really like the name.  And I would not care at all if it was her last name... So what? I would be curious as to what your DH thinks though and if it would bother him.  That would be my deciding factor.

  • You said it was nothing serious and it was for a short time, so I don 't really see much wrong with it.  I have had to decline a few names my husband picked out because they were last names of bfs that I had for a few years, and I think my family would notice and find it weird.

    Do whatever you feel like but I wouldn't want to think of one of my or my husbands exs when I said the name.  But if you are comfortable and your husband is, I wouldn't worry. :)

  • Ask DH how he feels about it.  If it doesn't bother him, I'd go for it.  If it doesn't bother him, but it's bothering you... what about Seth Carter?
