We Can’t vs. Agree!!

Hey you guys. My husband (Josh) and I (Katelyn) are expecting a baby this summer. We are keeping the gender a surprise (hopefully!). The baby is due in May, so it is only a few months away and we are no where close to picking a name. Josh vetoes every single name I suggest! I ask him what he likes, he tells me to find some and he’ll tell me if he likes it. I have literally gone through hundreds of names and he vetoes each one that I like. PLEASE HELP ME! I am ready to name this baby whatever I want without input from Josh!

What kind of names have you tried or do you like?

Tell him no. No, I will not go dig up more names for you to shoot down every one. Tell him to dig up some names and you’ll veto/approve them. Post some selections of yours and his (even if he/you don’t like them) and I’ll try to identify your individual styles, then suggest some compromises. Good luck!

I love Avia, Nilah, Penelope, Hanna, Alethea, Beckett, Caledon, Hayes, Cohen, Oliver, and Cadmus, but Josh doesn’t like any so it doesn’t matter.

He says he doesn’t like any names.

I need suggestions!!

You have to tell him to go and find some names he likes or else you’ll name it whatever you want. He cant just sit around like he’s the king and veto everything and not suggest anything himself. He sounds lazy and like he doesn’t care all that much. I would never accept such behaviour from my husband!

I think he us looking for ’normalcy.’ Your names are a bit more unique than he probably wants. Suggestions:
Zoe
Charlotte
Sadie
Ella
Olivia
Georgia
Nora
Savannah
Brianna
Maya
Juliet
Julianne
Evelyn
Megan
Isabelle
Samantha
Erin
Casey
Alexa
Lucy
Keira
Vivian
Annalise
Delaney

Jace
Tyler
Owen
Finn
William
Carter

Alexander
Allen
Brandon
Brady
Callum
Miles
Connor
Benjamin
Colin
Wesley
Brennan
Brian
Grant
Dillon
Nathan
Daniel
Carson
Griffin
Noah
Everett
Ethan

Even if you don’t like them, present them to Josh. By listening to what he likes, it might help you determine his style. Also, ask him why he doesn’t like your names.

Put your foot down and basically tell him," Look here Mister I am tired of you telling me what to not name our child! If you shoot down another of my names without suggesting anything, I will go all pregnancy hormones crazy on you! " Haha... Yeah but don’t. Just tell him that you are the parent too and you should have a say in naming your child. I believe in you!

Ugh I feel your pain, my husband is doing the same thing for our little girl. The only names he likes are aria, venna, and ellery. GL!

Please tell him he needs to veto ONLY names that he HATES. If he doesn’t LOVE a name it is not a reason to veto. My husband vetoed all of my ideas, got to name both girls and I am still bitter about ’veto’ power many years later. Also your tastes may change over the next few months so give it time and don’t press him with new names every day. GL!
