We agree on most boy names, and in the 9 years we've talked baby names a lot have had to bite the dust.
I won't list names DH vetoed because I'd be here all day, but other names I can't use are:
Audra and Audrey (SD is Aubrey)Dominic, Marissa, & Matthew (due to ln)Holly (we probably shouldn't use due to ln, but it's on our list for #3 anyway, as it's one of the only names we both like)Cameron & Reid/Reed (not that we're ever having a boy so it's been a non-issue)
Noah & Elliot (friends/family already used them)
Sebastian & Harper (DH hates)
Boys: Noah, Rowan, River, Alexander, Collin, Cole, Connor, Jacob, William, Eric, Ryan, Elijah, Zachary
Girls: Lauren, Allison, Jocelyn, Alathea/Alethea, Eden, Cecilia, Leah, Anna, Gwenyth (how my grandma spells hers), Lucille, Caroline, Clara, Alexis
Our favourite is Annika Lilly- couldn't use it because we never had a girl.
Others are Astrid, Kristin, Anneliese, Lydia, Andrew, Reid, Levi, James, Anakin, and Soren.
Nadia- DH thinks it sounds like 'naughty'
Preston- Just found out DH's life long friend is naming his son (due in June) this. But I'm not giving up hope yet!
Laura/Lauren -- rhymes with our last name
Leland and Lochlan -- dh hates Lochlan and associates Leland with Dog the Bounty Hunter
zaramarie81: raefre:Mila - oh why did we name the dog this?Forrest - stupid Forrest Gump Lol. I actually have a nephew named Forest, and the Forrest Gump association rarely comes up (to our surprise). He seems to own the name in everyone's minds. Maybe one day it will work out?

Silly DH says that the name Forrest will always be associated with Gump due to that movie. I try to tell him as a middle name, it would hardly ever be brought up. If DH has his way, we'll end up using Frederick instead.
Oh, other names DH vetoed:
