Anyways, I grew a pair last weekend finally ran them past him and yep...sure enough he said no to all of them. Gutted! Of course he had no suggestions of his own to add to the discussion.
Your DH sounds just like mine! Our system is I think of the names and DH says yay or nay until we pick the one we both like best.
When we were pregnant with ds1 we only made a girls list (as we'd chosen the boys name years before!) the girls name we chose we loved so much it was the only girls name we wanted so apart from that first time we've never made a girls list. Thankfully we got to use it for #4 smile
There were a couple over 4 pregnancies that I've been really dissappointed about giving up on because dh didn't like, but lots of others that we did agree on so all good smile I don't think it's ever a good idea to compromise. Don't leave it up to one parent to choose 1st and the other to choose the 2nd. I compromised on ds1 mn and I still wish we'd given him something different - hes 10yo
He was really funny when we were choosing. I'd say a name I liked, then he would yell is at the top of his voice to see if he felt stupid shouting the name (he said he was thinking ahead to shouting our childs' name across a crowded room)
Anyways...these are the names on my list (in order of my preference):
The last two are the ones that I consider to be a bit more 'out there/unusual' and while I don't love these names yet they have really grown on me over time.
There are others that I've added just to broaden the scope a little:
Benjamin (love this name but it was my dog's name so not sure if I can actually use it)
Can't think of the rest I added right now...I'm at work and as you can see I'm very busy!
DH wrote down two on the note pad before he left:
Tyson (I don't like this)
Rohan (I actually don't mind this but I think I would spell it Rowan).
If anyone has any suggestions on similar style names then let me know as I feel like I'm done looking so any inspiration would be welcomed smile
My beautiful baby boy wss born 18 July 2013
I have a Tyler smile and Nathan and Levi were the other two names at the top of my list!
We must have similar tastes then lol.
Incidentally...I was a Mel O before I became Mel A smile
