Completely different tastes in names!
My husband and I are expecting our third baby and we haven't found out the gender yet, but the name discussion is already starting to cause a little turmoil in our house. Our first two are girls, Fiona and Nora. It's a miracle we ever agreed to those, either. Our last name has a long ee sound to begin and ends in "man", so I want to avoid anything too rhyme-y. Our biggest challenge is finding boy names we both like. With the previous pregnancies our favorite was Eliott Quinn, and we might go with that again, but it's not really my favorite any more. My taste runs to the traditional with a slight Irish/Unexpected twist. His is more contemporary with a country twist. I hate to admit it, but I hate everything he suggests. I try to find common ground, but he shoots down everything I suggest, too.
He LOVES the name "Pilot". I contend that this isn't a name, it's a job (he is studying to become a commercial pilot). He argues that every name was once just a sound and we are the ones that assign meaning to it. I pay a lot of attention to the meaning of names. When we discuss names, this is his ONLY suggestion. I went to Nymbler.com and entered Pilot as an inspiration and out of the list of suggestions he liked "Ryker", if that gives you a feel for his taste.
My favorites include:
Boys: Seamus, Eliott, Alastair, Alec, Fletcher, Merritt, Graham
Girls: Imogen, Maeve, Muriel
Although I'm not totally sold on any of those.
Is there a common ground between Pilot and Fletcher? Any suggestions will be considered! Thanks!
