I am currently only 15 weeks but he thinks that we are having a boy.. Id really like a girl, but we get what we get. We have a bunch of girl names that we like, but no boy names. Well the Fiance and his family have a name that they love for a boy and I hate it. They are Norwegian and it was almost his name.. Here it is….. THOR
GROSS!!! His whole family loves it. His mom always asks me how baby Thor is and it drives me nuts!! If it is a boy it will not be named THOR!! No WAY!
They are dead serious too.. What do I do?

Find a way to compromise. Middle name maybe?

I think the mother should get unlimited veto powers for names. Just tell him no and give it time… more names will come up.

My cousin’s dog is named Thor and I think it’s a terrible name for a dog too. If you don’t like it you don’t like. Both parents get veto power. Fiance tried to convince me that we should name any future sons Lars and Otto. Hell to the no. VETO.

With the movie recently out, I would have to say no.
This needs to be a decision between you and your Fiance, no one else. When I was pregnant and my family would say something like that I would respond with “I’m sorry I have asked recently. You will have to call and check in with his parents”.

Oh my goodness. I know a dog named Thor. You have to talk them out of this, lol. My Thor is a very cool dog, though. 😉 Good luck!

Oh my, sorry but I laughed at that. There are SO many lovely Norwegian names! Maybe suggest some of those?

wasn’t there just a thread about a woman wanting to name her kid Thor? but pronounce it Tour or something like that? I totally think of it as a dog name too. Do NOT let them pressure you into saddling your poor child with this name!

You ladies are so funny! I like what my mom said, to tell his parents, “you guys got to name 2 children, now it is our time to name ours” 🙂 mamas always got it right!
My Fiance LOVES THE NAME LARS!!! His favorite band is Rancid and one of the best members is Lars Frederickson… lol

As Swedish as I am (pretty dang Swedish for being an American) I wouldn’t ever dream of naming my kid Thor. Never ever.
SO and I actually talked about this, because I know TWO people now who have named their children Loki. One, I believe, thinks it’s only from the movies, and the other definitely understand she named her child after the God of Mischief. Thor, or Loki, never gonna happen.

@hisgoosiegirl: yes there was another post about this name but they weren’t going to say it like we know it in the movie.
I would start suggesting other names you’ve got time to work on him. My parents are calling our baby Super Sport because my hubby drives a Super Sport Camaro. That is driving me crazy! No pun intended! LOL
