Hubby is convinced that we’re having a girl. There are many names that I think are awesome, and he hates them. The few that come to mind are Micah, Anna-Grace and Selah. He can’t stand them. But there are quite a few that we agree on, so its okay.

I am not pregnant, but I REALLY wanted to name my daughter Violet. My husband hates that name. Cry

If I had my way, my daughter would be named Adeline. I adore it and Darling Husband doesn’t like it at all. We’ve compromised on Caroline, but we still can’t agree on a middle name! 

If we have a son in the future, his name is pretty much already decided. We agree much more on boy names, so it figures we’d have a girl first.

I very rarely post but had to reply because my daughter’s name is Adeline! We don’t know any other girls with her name but get compliments on it all the time. Her middle name is Rose which could work for you if you go with Caroline.

Darling Husband is English, so he’s got a lot of class associations with names that I just don’t get! I’d love to use Felicity or Lottie, but he thinks they sound like stuck-up posh girls with horsey accents.:(

@harpmom:  Beautiful! I’m mildly jealous that you got to name your daughter that. ๐Ÿ™‚

@cowgirlace:  All your names are REALLY trendy.  Maybe try for some that are more traditional, or less trendy right now, and he might like some.

I’m a newborn photographer and last year alone I photographed 5 Henry’s (another is due this March) and 6 Harpers!  I also had a Caleb, Rylan and Haylee.

I’m not pregnant but we talk about names every now and then.

I love the name Aria and Fiance isn’t too fond of it. He doesn’t hate it, but I doubt it would ever win out over other names. I also like the name Lena (pronounced Lay-na) but I’m not sure he’ll like it…haven’t mentioned it yet.

I love the name Jackson, but he’s says it’s a last name. I used to love the Tristin, but I’m too afraid to bring it up lol.

We did both agree on the name Peyton (for a boy…yes, I know most people think it’s a girls name but c’mon…Peyton Manning, anyone?!)

@iheartnerds:  Caroline is my dream name for a girl.  Darling Husband isn’t into it, so I gave up on it years ago.  That worked out well, though, because my best friend just named her daughter that.  It’s super popular right now – I know THREE pregnant women using Caroline!  It seems to be a traditional name that keeps coming back. Love it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I want a Jeremiah sooo bad but my husband won’t go for it. He wants traditional catholic names. Ugh….I like the unique names that I don’t hear very often.

His response to Jeremiah…Our son won’t be a bullfrog.

My mom wanted to name me Kendra, but my dad thought it was a black girl’s name. Not in a racist way, just in that it would seem weird? Bizarre…

I’m not pregnant, but I have a ton of names I love that Fiance hates and vice versa. For example, for a boy, my “dream name” would be Nathaniel Andrew and FI’s is Troy Nicholas (after his father who passed away). (I can’t stand the name Troy, but I understand the intent behind it). Other names I like: Jamison, Quinn, Ned, Neil, Joel, etc.

For a girl, I like Charlotte Joy (he thinks it’s okay). He likes Madison or Riley (and I hate both of those names). Other girls’ names I like are Lua (pronounced Lou-ah), Helena (pronounced Ha-lay-na), Violet, and Justine. 

So, we agreed on Audrey Joy-Ann for a girl (I originally wanted Aubrey, but we compromised) and Troy Raymond for a boy. However, the agreement is that if we have a second son his name will be Nathaniel Andrew.

I’m kind of an old-soul. ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, I wanted to give our child a timeless name, but compromised with my Fiance who prefers more trendy names. (I asked if he were to choose a boy’s name other than Troy what it would be and he said Jordan).

Boys :

Torrin (he loves it)

Luca (not so much)


Airabella (he hates it)
