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

DH wanted to call our first DD 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.

Which is not only a touch dated, but also the name of his first serious girlfriend.
I passed on that one.

Odin or Thorbjorn No Scandinavian connection whatsoever.
Eh no! We have a Robbie

I like the name Charlie for a girl 🤔
Dh (now ex) wanted Levi for a boy and Megan or Amber for a girl (both very popular names at the time), he did kind of chose dd1’s name but it was a name we both agreed on, I chose dd2’s name which is much different than Dd1’s name.

Ramses, after an Egyptian king.
We had a girl, thankfully.
My Dad wanted to call me Marie. It was the late 70s. My mum vetoed.

DH wanted to call our 2nd DC Karla if it was another girl. Luckily he was a boy! I think it's an alright name, just not very contemporary.
17caterpillars1mouse · 26/11/2021 08:08
Dale. Not a chance, luckily we had girls

DP wanted DS to be named Michael.
His offering for DD was Leoni.
CatonMat · 26/11/2021 08:12
I like Leoni.
I didnt know that until just now!

Think it depends on your accent. Aubrey and strawberry don't sound at all alike how I say them but I can understand if you are in an area that says straw-bry (rather than straw-BERRY) they sound similar.
Mydogisagentleman · 26/11/2021 08:15
I know an Aubrey, he is commonly known as strawberry.
My DH was very keen on Trinity. Our DD is not Trinity, but she was at school with one
MeatyRvita · 26/11/2021 08:18
Paolo after Paolo Di Canio - his favourite footballer. We have no Italian background which makes it a solid no from me!
LadyCatStark · 26/11/2021 08:19
Charlotte was on my parents’ list for me and I would have loved the nickname Charlie!
Frazzled2207 · 26/11/2021 08:21
Thor (before the films)
Not sure which of those is worse
oohyoudevilyou · 26/11/2021 08:22
Asa for a boy, Sonia or Cheryl for a girl. How I remain married to him is a mystery!
campion · 26/11/2021 08:22
Edwina and Dorothy.
I can only assume it was his fondness for 19th century novels.
When I said no first time he said maybe DC2? Still no!
19lottie82 · 26/11/2021 08:22
Not me, but I remember I had a male friend who’s partner was expecting a boy. He told me that he wanted to call him Clyde or Tiger 😬. In the end they settled on John. 😂
HosannainExcelSheets · 26/11/2021 08:22
Summer for a girl
I’ll let you figure out what our surname is
thecatsthecats · 26/11/2021 08:24
My dad wanted to name his new kitten his own name (well, a diminutive - say Tom vs Thomas that only acquaintances use, not close friends and family).
It genuinely didn't occur to him until we pointed out that he might look like a lunatic calling her in at night.
CallMeBettyBoop · 26/11/2021 08:28
Girl - Morag, Judith
Boy - Magnus, Malcolm
Chunkymenrock · 26/11/2021 08:32
Roger and Emily. Christ on a bike. NO.
NewLevelsOfTiredness · 26/11/2021 08:32
I have two Step daughters. The eldest turned out to be named after one of her dad's ex-girlfriends.
Their mum only discovered this four years later when he suggested a name for the youngest when she was born, and his mum said "you can't name them both after ex-girlfriends!"
StCharlotte · 26/11/2021 08:33
I used to work with a Carolanne. She was v. posh.
DH came up with "Ward" after a beloved footballer. Never happening.
(There's a lad in our town called Albion.)
TravellingSpoon · 26/11/2021 08:36
Ex wanted to call DD Crystal, which was a flat no.
