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.

McEwan as a middle name (no family reference). All I could think was export.

Ellie.
I’ve worked in schools and taught 100s of Ellie so it comes with those memories for me. He refused to consider Eleanor/elena/Eloise or any other longer version. He also wanted to pronounce it Elle.

Lars Johannes Bjorn (I am Scandinavian)
He also seriously wanted to use our surname and slightly change our surname so think
Smith Smithy
Ds is Conrad

On girls we were a lot more compatible but I love Alannah and wanted it bad and it was met with a blanket " no" from dh and he refused to discuss it further with others when we had a no there was genuinely a reason why (I don't like the sound - reminds me of x) but w this one nothing I was puzzled. Mentioned it to the wife of his friend who in hushed tone explained Alannah was the name of the girl he dated before I had met him who had run off w someone else..
I didn't suggest it again (sadly as I do love the name Alannah)

My dh chose/came up with the names for all our 5 kids. I suggest a few and he is like, yeah nice names but I want something else. And then one day he will suggest a name and I am like wow that's a really beautiful name. And then we go for that one. It's happened every time lol.

Molly

Just feels like setting a girl up for a life of being sweet and pleasing others, being weak and accommodating

Phoenix. Phoenix! I told him to pick again and he said something just as stupid.
I told him he is no longer allowed to be part of the first name and could only pick a middle name. DS has hated his middle name since he was a toddler. He would actually cry and say no no no if you said it 😂 its a fairly common name, too.

After I suggested Cameron, DH announced that he did not want a Scottish sounding first name as we have a Scots surname.
So he suggested Andrew, and couldn't work out why I laughed for 5 minutes.Confused

My stepdad wanted to call my brother Butch back in the 80s. Luckily my mum said no.

My dad choose my name and named me after his bank manager! Luckily it's a nice name, not very common though.

DH wanted to name ds after him, a traditional, popular in the 70s name. I said no.

I wanted Thomas for DS3, which I think is probably one of the least offensive or out there names. DH vetoed. I can only think he’d known someone he didn’t like with that name?

We both flirted with the idea of Asher but in the end decided it was a bit too out there for us Grin

@LuluBlakey1 I don’t understand - are you questioning what people used to tease @ConcernedAuntie with?!

Thirza, Demelza, Bathsheba and Hepzibah. I still have no idea where these came from.

My mother wanted to call me Rita.

I’m imagining you giving birth to twins who look like Paris Hilton and Boris Johnson. It’s not a great image.

I dislike Thomas purely for the association with a Thomas I went to school with. I think that’s often the case when people dislike what is a really standard ordinary name.

We have 2 boys and 3 girls, each boy pregnancy he had his heart set on either Sheldon or Maldwynn!! It started as a joke but deep down he really wanted them. Safe to say my boys are NOT called either Sheldon or Maldwynn!
