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

FortunesFave · 26/11/2021 05:22

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.

Bruce for a boy.

He would protest that I wanted Arcadia for a girl.

@smaragda

My DH comes from a family where they do the same with names. First boy has the grandfather’s name. DH is luckily the second boy so I was able to veto that suggestion without causing a family rift. He wanted his dad’s name for the middle name for our hypothetical boy but I wanted my grandad’s name. Neither of us liked the other name.

@HerbivorousRex

My DH’s name list for girls is basically the class register from 1994 (Jessica, Chloe, Sarah, Rachel, Rebecca, Emma, Natalie).
The names are fine but I just associate them with people I went to school with (some I liked, others I’m sure are nice people now 😂).
Luckily we’re having a boy!

Mine too. He was very sold on Sarah, but there were about 11 of them in my class and 50% of them used to bully me!

Liberty or Scarlett would have been ok - not to my taste but ok - but the rest are awful! Were these hormone induced name choices?

DH wanted the name of a character from Warhammer.

Luckily there are many characters in Warhammer and DS has a normal name which does have a tenuous link.

Michelle, Lorraine, Bernadette. Our kids were all born this century, not in the 1960s.

Crikey. I don't think I could live with him after that. If you misbehaved, would he put you in a home run by nuns?

DH suggested loads of "American" sounding names. Tyler, Jason, Kyle. Not a fan.

Edmund.

Classic name, yes, but I could only think of Blackadder and the horrible Narnia one.

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

Sam for a boy
Samantha for a girl (nn Sam)
Nice enough names, BUT, no one in our family has that name! So he was not honoring or remembering anyone. Not even a friend or a pet!

Dh really wanted to name dd Delilah and ds Nickolai.

We are English born and raised in England so Nickolai was definitely out and sorry but I really did not like Delilah.

No I still like some of those names!

But was made to be sensible by DH.
