We’re in the same boat as you (TTC after the wedding), but I just wanted to say that we’re having the same problem.  We have two boy’s names agreed on, but we can’t think of any girl names that we both like.  It’s quite funny and silly at the same time, since we’re not even TTC at the moment, let alone pregnant, but we keep on debating it!

We have two girls and boy names are for sure easier!  We were settled on boy names for both from the very beginning and wavered with girls names till the end with both.

Darling Husband loooooves the name Rex!!! Rex for a boy… even “Rexy” for a girl! Whaaaa?!?! I don’t think so!  I think he may be pulling my name with “Rexy” but he really does love the name Rex.

The only thinkgI think of when I hear that name is the Jets’ coach, Rex Ryan, yelling his face off. No thanks!!!!

I don’t think it’s ridiculous that you’re upset he doesn’t like your names, but I wouldn’t worry about it too much at this point if you can help it! πŸ™‚

We actually had a girls name picked out and could agree on a boys name at all. We ended up with a boy (we wanted a boy) and couldn’t decide on a name until I was 6 months! We finally compromised on a name he liked as long as I could change the spelling because I HATED how it was originally spelled. It worked out in the end.

How we did it was, Darling Husband got to chose a boy’s name and I get to chose a girls name. We have a son and Darling Husband is the one who picked out his name. It just so happens I do like the name also.  Now if we every have a girl I get to pick her name out.

Names actually are really, really hard!  We decided on two girl names quite quickly – and actually have a whole list of other girl names that we really like too should we see this baby when it arrives and decided that neither name fits (provided it’s a girl of course!)   Boy names though was a huge struggle for us.  We went around and around on it for ages before we finally agreed upon two names.  If this is a boy, I think it’s going to have to be one of those two names as we’re not even close to agreeing on any other boy name!

my parents had this problem with both me and my brother.  They couldn’t agree on a name for me until I was about 2 months old!  I was nameless for that entire time.  My brother was nameless even longer!

We’re nowhere near TTC and we can’t agree on ANY names πŸ™ He’s dead set on a boy’s name I hate and he hates all the names I like for both boys and girls. I’m hoping things change in the next couple years or naming our kids is going to be the biggest battle ever!

I am dead set on naming a boy after my grandpa, it’s just something I’ve always wanted to do and Darling Husband knows how important it is to me. It’s not his most favorite name but it’s growing on him. We also picked a name together back when we were in highschool that we both love but is too trendy to use now. In general, our tastes are really opposite and I anticipate a lot of problems once we begin TTC, especially if we have a girl. I like unique names and his taste tends to run to the vanilla side.

Darling Husband and I can’t agree on a boys name. He wants a junior and I refuse. Its all works out though, my parents couldn’t decide on a name for me and since I needed one before I left the hospital the nurse sort of named me. She made a recommendation that my parents both agreed on.

I bet once you are picking it out for real rather than theoretically you will come to a compromise πŸ™‚
