I really really love the name Fraser but dh is not keen but he doesnt hate it. every time i hear it i just get this feeling i know its the one.

Have you chosen a name that your dh or dp is not keen on but has got used to it in time or should i get used to the idea that our son wont have the name i love and have to chose second best?

I dont even have a 2nd best so any ideas would be welcome ds1 is owen.

Just don't let him register the birth. Both my grandfather and father 'forgot' the correct names when registering my mother and brother respectively.

Babies tend to 'look like' their names and one he gest used to it it won't be an issue. At least it's not something really terrible!

You could tell him it a toss-up between 'Fraser' or 'Peewee Teapot' and ask him to choose...

i wanted to call ds1 Reilly, dp said no. so i put post it motes everywhere - even in his shoes with Reilly written on it

DS1 is called Reilly

The names we loved for DS1 just didn't seem right when he finally arrived, so I'd wait until he comes if I were you. We finally agreed on first names, but were still arguing about middle names on our way to register the birth! I think you have two weeks anyway so once you get used to him you might think differently.

After you have been through the birth etc you will probably look up at your DP and say, let's call him Fraser and it will be impossible for him to say no after all you have been through!

Are you definitely having a boy?

lollyheart Wed 03-Sep-08 12:39:37

LOL at Scorpio1s post it notes i will give it a go.

Yes it is def a boy 20 week and 4d scan has said so but you never know untill they pop out.

I'm with Ewe, how can he possibly deny you this request after hours of pain and suffering! Remember to scream extra loud, well you prolly will anywaygrin, and as he is gazing into his new son's eyes, introduce him to little Frasersmile

I agree that your DH will be so in awe of you that he'll agree to anything! Fraser is a lovely name smile

My friend was keen on Gabriel. her DH not at all. After 12 hours of labour her DH came back from hospital to show me a photo of little Gabriel. I think he was too proud/shellshocked to object!

Dh didn't like any of the names i suggested for both DDs. They were both born without names, and i spent the night in the maternity staring at their faces and suddenly their names just came to my mind and stuck. Dh didn;t even know.

When he came to visit in the morning, i said "say hello to you daddy DD1" (well, her name isn;t DD1, although now i think of it..DeeDeeOne?... smile)...anyway, he didn't like it at first, but now absolutely loves it, she couldn't be anything else.

Same scenario with DD2, he didn't like the name i chose because it reminded him of an ex, but since he didn't suggest anything else, then i gave him the baby to hold and said "Here's DD2".

Now he adores both their names.

AFter pg and birth, i think i am entitled to chose their names.
