I'm just curious and thought it would be an interesting topic as I know parents don't agree on everything. What would you have named you child/children if your DP didn't have a say in it? smile

The same as they're called now. DH thinks we compromised on names. Not exactly true blush

DH thought it was pretentious.

Probably pretty similar to what they are called! My DH never makes suggestions, so he's vetoed a few names but a lot of things I like have grown on him over the course of 9 months!

Daniel, for my grandad.

It was also the name of DH’s School bully. So was vetoed.

Or is it Christophe? I would have had to work on the spelling. grin

missyB1 Thu 12-Oct-17 20:57:11

I got my own way grin

I want Freddie if current pregnancy is a boy, but we've agreed on Henry

Lydia. DH had had a massive crush on a Lydia at 15, so vetoed it. I loved that name.

GreyFluffball Thu 12-Oct-17 21:16:45

Roscoe. DH said it's a dogs name.

I still love our sons name but if I got my own way it would have been Austin.

Bruno and Dylan

DS1 would still have been Samuel, as that was my choice.

DS2 would have been Edward

DD1 would have been Matilda.

DD2 would have been Arabella.

Isambard and Isis

BrutusMcDogface Thu 12-Oct-17 21:19:55

Heidi. School bike apparently.
Xanthe. Not sure why.
Still wish I'd been able to use my favourite names for the children that I pushed out of my foof, but hey.

OyyVeyy Thu 12-Oct-17 21:24:18


Oooh that's really quite interesting given what they are actually called smile

Would you** still go with Isis Bikerunski?

OyyVeyy Thu 12-Oct-17 21:26:38

(Apolz for my terrible typing!)

Sarahh2014 Thu 12-Oct-17 21:29:15

Rocco but we had Mason I'm glad now tho

DramaAlpaca Thu 12-Oct-17 21:29:32

Same as they are called now. DH agreed with all my suggestions, including the middle names, so naming them was easy.

whiteroseredrose Thu 12-Oct-17 21:39:05

If DH had had his way we would have had a Genghis as he thinks it goes well with our name. And that was for DD!! angry

HashiAsLarry Thu 12-Oct-17 21:40:09

Ottilie and Sebastian.
Dcs real names are in a similar vein to this so not 100% sure what turned DH away from these.

Boris [ok, DS1 had a lucky escape]
