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.

@ SpangoDweller snap!
Although I didn’t know it at the time! We couldn’t think of a boys name at all. Husband suggested Seth, I didn’t like it at first. The more I thought of it with the middle name I wanted to use, the more I liked it. It wasn’t until several weeks after baby was born that my husband told me he’d got the name from a warhammer character. We still joke that he tricked me into naming our child after a character from his hobby!

Ex wanted Irulan. Irulan. He'd just read Dune.
I knew it was going to be a boy anyway, but still…

I actually really like Charlie for a girl Smile

I have got two sons and my husband chose both of their names.

When he first came up with the name for our first son (when I was pregnant) I wasn’t keen on it at all, but when the baby was born I had no clue what to call him so told me husband we’d just go with his chosen name. Thankfully I love it now.

With our second son, my husband suggested the name towards the end of the pregnancy and I liked it straight away so I didn’t even think about alternatives.


My dad named both me and my sister and I always used to feel quite offended by it - thinking what kind of mum has no interest/input in choosing their baby’s name….but now I’ve gone and done it too Grin

When I think of names like Tyler and Kyle I think Oh golly it's the Non-Binary Hour.

Jacqueline, so we could call her Jack (she’s now 10 not 60)
Thomasin, so we could call her Tom
Phillipa, Edwina etc

I pointed out that we had a son, he had a name, and now we were naming a girl.

DD has an actual girls name, not a boys babe with an “a” on the end.

DH liked the name Gemma. Possibly from an unrequited playground love as a kid.
I, on the other hand, went to school with a really mean Gemma. Vetoed!

The ones I remember, Xanto for DS1, -Evie for DD2, David for DS3 and Cleopatra for DD4.
Nothing wrong with the names as such Hmm but some sort of theme would be nice.

My husband really liked Eugene for our first child. I didn't! To be fair he didn't like my suggestion either (Orson). We ended up with a much more common/ordinary name.

Second was a girl and he really really wanted her to be called Emma. It is a pretty name but (1) There were 5 Emmas in my class at school and I felt a bit Emma-ed out and (2) my ex had recently called his daughter Emma (we still have friends in common) and it might have looked a bit weird and stalkery if I had chosen the same name!

DH suggested Einar and Odin!

We are not from Scandinavia, never been to Scandinavia and are not into Norse mythology plus those names sound fugly in English!

Again nothing wrong with it for a 45 year old.

DH pushed quite hard for Aethelred (he wanted it with the ash at the beginning, which I pointed out would be giving the baby the gift of a lifelong administrative issue), and came quite close to talking me into Raedwald as a middle name.

Obidiah and Hepzibah. I put my feet firmly down!

@hels71 I don’t know what you went with in the end but both are big statements about your faith, seems a lot for a baby.

DH wanted James. Which after reading the comments is obviously not that bad. I was the one with unusual name choices to be honest. Blush

Not DH, but my father suggested a Swahili name for DD. Spoiler: we have absolutely no connection to Kenya.

My DH also suggested Charlie.

My DF wanted to call me Paula. This was in the sixties so not a bad choice… except that my older brother is called Paul.
