Dh ruins all of my baby name plans here is my list if he had no say for a Ds I would have a Hugo or a Jesse we mostly agree on girls names but I love Fleur and he despises it.

What would you call your baby if you had free rein?

Ohhhh great thread magic....

DH said no to the following boys names. Too many to pick...

But had a DD and we agreed on that!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 18-Aug-11 17:27:59

We actually played something like this inbed this morning! Dd1 wanted to know what I'd call my children if I had 7 boys and 7 girls and dp hated all but one of them.

For my real dds, I wanted to call dd1 Eloise Claire and dd2 Harriet Posy but dp was having none of it!

The names he particularly objected to this morning were Thaddeus and Barnaby.

Katya and Rudy or Rufus.

Stupid dp with his stupid opinions... grin

Fionn (DH says this sounds like a fast car zooming past)
Aoife (says it's like "E" is for Elephant)
Ptolemy (just no!)

Ooh. Gabriel or Rufus. Spoilsport.

But he let me have a Hugo grin

Eglu Thu 18-Aug-11 17:45:41

ds1 elijah
dd2 naomi
ds2 lyndon
ds3 ethan
dd3 clodagh
dd4 cecily

magicmelons Thu 18-Aug-11 18:05:54

Oh and all Irish names here, managed to sneak Aisling into dd1s middle name but when I wanted to call her Aisling he just kept saying Ashley What?

DessertsInReverse Thu 18-Aug-11 18:32:08

ds2 i'd forgotten would actually have been cillian dh was so negative because it begins with kill that i then tried to persuade him to accept lyndon but too no avail

Debs75 Thu 18-Aug-11 18:36:52

dd1 would of been Jessica Frances after my grandad Jesse Francis, or elloise
ds would of been Gabriel or Harry
dd2 would of been Indiana(bloody lego game)
i may of relented and she would most likely be Isabella or Tabitha
dd3 would of been Philippa or Freya

SchrodingersMew Thu 18-Aug-11 18:37:33

DS would be getting called Casper or Caspar. Failing that Ethan.

I'm quite mad actually because I don't particularly like our name choice. angry

Debs75 Thu 18-Aug-11 18:38:05

Oh and if dd3 was a boy then she woulf of been Woody or Noah

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 18-Aug-11 18:38:42

I managed to end up with a Naomi! Love Cecily too.

ThePosieParker Thu 18-Aug-11 18:39:52

Imagining DH having a say over the baby I carried......strain.....nope, can't...babies had the names I wanted.

SchrodingersMew Thu 18-Aug-11 18:42:29

I'm fuming about this actually!

I've had a horrid pregnancy, in and out hospital constantly and he's just sat on his frigging laptop designing and playing video games the whole time.....

Yet we have a name planned that he likes and I don't. angry

Love Cecily btw!

pink4ever Thu 18-Aug-11 18:47:45

Ds1-Tristan,christian or sebastian<sense the theme>
dd-Agatha<sobs hard>,cecelia,clodagh or clothilde
ds2-cillian!-cant believe someone else on here wanted it!

DD would have been Aoife(which we both loved) if it hadnt been for inlaws deliberately mispronouncing itangry

superjobee Thu 18-Aug-11 18:48:26

ha! DP hates me for this because im the one saying no to every single name he came away with!! poor bugger we spent forever and ended up with a nice normal name for this fat baby smile i hate almost all baby names..

only names i wasnt allowed off my lists were:

frances <franks are chavs>
brodie <surname>
callan <too like DDs>
edward <we know a dickhead called eddie>

and for girls

natalie <too slutty>
erin <too boring>
emmy <not a real name>
esme <bloody twilight angry>

rachel234 Thu 18-Aug-11 18:51:13

Some lovely names on here (perhas us women should choose names alone) - I particularly love Cecily, Cillian, Rufus and Thaddeus!

TrillianAstra Thu 18-Aug-11 18:57:19

Some lovely awful names on here (perhaps us women should never choose names alone)


pamplemousserose Thu 18-Aug-11 19:00:12

Merlin and Isadora

SchrodingersMew Thu 18-Aug-11 19:00:56

SchrodingersMew Thu 18-Aug-11 19:02:46
