What name did your DH come up with for your babies that you hated?
315

DH wanted to call our first DD Charlie.

Fucking Charlie!

SO many lovely girls' names and he comes up with that.

Sorry if your is called that...it's nice enough I suppose but it's just not something I'd choose for a girl.

Alan. Vetoed on the grounds we were expecting a baby and not a 50 year old accountant.

@Fittowork

My husband wanted Theresa - which I didn’t like - he didn’t even think on that our surname is Green.


I think your OH was well aware of your surname and it was a joke

DH suggested Carol. I wanted Verity. At one stage it looked as though DD would be "the baby" forever! Luckily DH came up with a beautiful name we both love.

DH suggested Maddie, I said GTF, it could be Madeleine but no shortened names, either the actual proper name or nothing.
Long story short we went for Eleanor.

Christina after his grandmother...it also happened to be the name of his ex. That'll be a no right there!

Ty or Argyll are standouts for me too.

Just thought of another one... Gage, after the boy in Pet Semetary. You know, the kid who dies and gets buried in the Pet Semetary then comes back to life evil and goes on a murderous rampage and kills his mum and others. Yes, let's name our kid after him lol.

It is odd though how names go through fashions.
Names that are old fashioned yet still never 'make it' while some stay lovely like Charlotte and Alice.
Ugly names ( to me) like Agnes or Agatha or simply dull names like Kerry and Sherry and all those 70's names.
Or abbreviated names, they never really cut the mustard do they, give them the proper name then abbreviate it at home.

Just remembered DD’s dad suggested Mordred for a boy and Morgana for a girl.

@evelynhugo

Caroline if we had a girl. It's fine if you're in your forties but not for my baby.

I love the name Caroline, I think it may have a post footie lift
