Has anyone simply left the decision to their partner with the idea that you'd name the next child? How has that gone? Has anyone not liked the name their partner picked, and how did you feel about that?

We sort of did it.
Where I come from, the kids tend to take the name of their grandparents traditionally.
First child normally takes the name of dad's parents (either mum or dad) and the second child normally takes the name of mum's parents (either mum or dad).
In our case, we followed this rule/tradition, as otherwise our parents would be VERY upset!
It was a joint decision though and we didn't have any issues with their names!
