What's a great name that your DH WILL NOT go for?

Girl- Lydia
Boy- Kurt (family name)
«1

Re: What's a great name that your DH WILL NOT go for?

  • August, Spencer, Clark
    Juliet

  • We don't discuss names in a serious way yet.  I'm waiting for a positive pregnancy test before that happens; otherwise, I'll wear him out very quickly.

     

    Having said that, I think DH will never go for Allen.  Allen is a family name and I love it, but it's also the name of a guy we know who is the lowest of pond scum, so DH has a crappy association with it.

  • Boy names: Louis, August, Theodore, Patrick, Seamus

    We've stopped discussing girl names, so I can't remember what was vetoed except Lucille/Lucy.

  • I love Kurt!

    He doesn't like Timothy for a boy, and I like it a lot.

    For a girl we pretty much like a lot of similar names, though.

    I may be biased, but I think Allen is a great middle name for a boy...goes with a lot of different names.

    I was talking about Aurora in the car one day and he goes "what a terrible name."  I gave him the look of death.
    I am seriously grieving Louis.  I want to use it SO badly, but he's said no every time I bring it up...so I need to stop.  It's hard.

    ETA: William is a family name that I love, too.  But I can handle not using it.  But I wish he liked it, too.

    I agree, and the mn is where I'd want to use it.  One name that we both like for a boy is Jude, and I like Jude Allen, but I'm pretty sure DH would never go for it.

    @lauralew - can you trick him into subconciously liking it and then having him suggest it to you? 

    Then you can act all coy, and be like...I don't know, let me think about it.  Then he will beg you to use it.

  • I should add that if I ever get a BFP, I'm sure I'll have a lot more to add to this list.  I'll bet a lot of names I like might be some he won't go for.  I don't know.

    Boy- August
    Girl- Penelope

    But neither of those are my first choices, and he does actually like both of my first choices.


  • He thinks a lot of the names I suggest are old fashioned and/or too posh. Names like Beatrice and Lawrence have been shot down for that reason.

    Oh, I WISH.  He hates Louise, too.  :(  What I need is to find an awesome person named Louis... He started to like Liam because of Liam Neeson being such a bad ass.  I know if Walter wasn't a family name for him he probably wouldn't like it...

    However we have come to the middle on the following
    Piper, Scarlett, and Gwendolyn (my grandmothers name)

  • I always loved Mallory, but he hates it. I'm OK with that, though, because there are about 4 or 5 girl names that we both like.

    My sister made her daughter's middle name the same as mine, and I was so honored that I wanted to do the same for her if I ever had a little girl. But, her mn is Dawn, and MH has a horrible association with the name and refuses. :(

    For a boy, I love love love Rhys. He hates hates hates it.

  • Pretty much everything that I like. 
    He doesn't like anything modern or anything old. He only wants to use names that we grew up with in the 90's.

    @Idani‌ I'm sorry about Lorenzo! That's our agreed upon boy's name should we ever have a son. DH vetoed my favorite girl's name, Clara. But I vetoed his boy's name, Diego. I also liked Ariel for a boy but he said people would think he's a girl because it's a girl's name in English.

    I really love Celeste as a first name. He was absolutely against it, but luckily for our little lady she ended up with it as a middle name. Sarah was another FN I absolutely love.

    For boys, it was almost all names I liked. Titus, Roman, Henry, Atticus.
