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.

DS1 wanted to call DS2 ‘Pain’. He was going to change his own name to ‘Chain’ so they could have a tag wrestling team called Chain and Pain! In fairness, he was only 4 😂. In turn, DD2 cried when we didn’t call DD1 ‘Pig -el- let’ - he was also 4 at that point.

@TheOriginalEmu Even funnier when DS2 was born all wrinkly and had a genuine old man face, im high off gas and air and he looks me dead in the eyes and sais 'see, hes a maldwynn though and through'. I was crying with laughter Grin

DS' dad really likes virtue names, things like Hope, Charity... god knows why, he's certainly lacking those traits in himself

Ha, I hated all dh's names! I think they were Mark, Adam, Anthony, and Paul. We had twins so I wanted to choose one of his names for one of them but just couldn't, I negotiated his grandad's name instead which I like but he hadn't suggested.

Cressida and Melissa.

We have a spooky sounding surname which with Cressida would have sounded like a cartoon witch. And Melissa reminded me of school bullies.

Wanted a name that couldn’t really be shortened, which by the way didn’t work out name I picked people just added a Y to and lengthened it eg Jack becomes Jacky.
Bearing this in mind when we talked about names my husband came up with Todd 😳 apologies in advance to anyone called Todd.
On saying that I’m a Georgina who has only ever been known as Tina

My DH wanted Zephyr for a boy. I actually love this name but felt it was a bit too "out there" and wouldn't have wanted him to be picked on. We had a girl anyway.

In 1999 (first baby) he came up with Wendy.
I'm assuming that he wasn't very clued up on what babies were being called at that time, so went through the girls he'd gone to school with 30 years previously!

After reading these my dhs taste is lovely, if not just quite plain. His suggestions which I now actually love one and would use if we ever had another were, Lucy, Amy and Jack.

DH wanted to use his late mothers' name. Which I wasn't comfortable with full stop, but it was a very old fashioned name that hasn't come back round again like a lot of others .........

However, my nan had a very similar name and we stumbled across the welsh version of this quite by accident and loved it.... so our 1st DD was named after both of them in a roundabout way.

Mary and Julia. Nothing wrong with these names but not what I had in mind for my late eighties and early 90s babies.
