Help! My Husband Is Excited About The Baby, But Not The Naming Process! Plus We Have Two Different Styles Of "old Lady" Names.
Hi all.! I am beginning my second trimester and am very excited. My problem rests in the title that we both like " old lady names" but not the same ones by a stretch, if we have a girl.
We have agreed upon Elise for a first name. Baby naming is not a fantasy or hobby for him, and it seems like the most important thing in the world to me right now, and a crazy part of me wants him to be as interested in names as i am. i do want an AHA moment. if he acted excited, then i would feel reassured, but instead i find myself searching and announcing different picks and i get the same neutral reaction from him. His picks, on the other hand, make my insides recoil. He would like to see any of the below listed as either first or middle names:
Deborah- perpetually 40 (my other issue, is he has two sisters and this is one of the sisters names and they are both fiercely competitive. i don't care for their names, but like them as people.
Margaret- same as debi, middle-aged
Muriel- cannot imagine saying this out loud
Sybilla- loved the movie Kingdom of Heaven, but not wanting it on my kid, also he won't go for just Sybil. i have tried to use variants of these names as a compromise, but he just likes them in the form presented.
Ready for your middle name suggestions and support!
