Quoting Reise's Mommy:" We were the same way with our first boy. I had names and names and names but he really wanted him to ... [snip!] ... didn't want to have him go by his middle name because I do that and it sucks. This one he agreed on a name fairly quickly lol."
our first was a synch. We had a name all picked out before we got pregnant. My husband is a bit of mama's boy, and when she didn't like it, he nixed it (yeah I was pissed!) so I quickly came up with an alternative. We're from seattle, but obviously living away from home. Elliott Bay is a major part of the town, and so I suggested Elliot because I was seriously homesick. It was an instant success and it stuck. Even before we knew it was a boy, he was Belliot.
My daughter on the other hand was a nightmare to name.
This time I'm not even sweating it until I have to. There are a couple of names we sorta like, Some I like more than he does, others he likes more than me. Meh. It's our last so at least I won't have to fight him again
