OY, DH has just informed me he DOESN'T like our one main choice!
So, as you all may know, Xavier has been our main name choice for awhile now. It's the only boy name DH and I could agree on. Yesterday, DH informed me that he in fact does NOT like Xavier, but that he was "trying" to like it. He's still stuck on Auden. So, I'm 30 weeks (I know it's not quite urgent time yet) and we're back to the drawing board.
In case it's helpful, DH's response to Xavier is that it's just too pretentious and formal - too flowery and fancy for his taste, I guess. He does like the idea of X as a middle initial, though, so wouldn't mind Xavier as a middle name.
I went back to our long list and came up with these contenders:
Abr@m Xavier H F (don't love how Abe butts up against F of last name)
Ev3rett Xavier H F (can you imagine Everett as an adult? What does it feel like to you?)
N@thaniel Xavier H F (How does Nate sound with last name? Awkward? Too, too common???)
Nicol@s Carol H F (would probably only use with Nico as the nickname. Is that bad with the long "O" ending of the last name?)
Other names on our LONG list are:
Auden (can I love this one???)
Elliot (but DH doesn't really like)
Calder (too many last names then)
Simon (DH doesn't like)
Thanks for all the patience and help!
