I need help convincing my husband of [name]Emmett[/name], [name]Silas[/name], [name]Frederick[/name] (nn [name]Freddie[/name]) or [name]Charles[/name] (nn [name]Charlie[/name]).
Hubby is a musician/artist/clash-listening type. While he has not come up with any suggestions on his own, he has conveniently found a reason to dislike every name I suggest. He thinks [name]Emmett[/name] sounds too much like a football player or a cowboy. [name]Frederick[/name] sounds too dorky to him. Same with [name]Charlie[/name]. And [name]Silas[/name] is a “no way” because it’s a character on a popular TV show (Weeds) which he thinks makes it not original enough. (?)
Nevertheless, I haven’t given up on these names because it’s rare that I find boys names that I like, and now that I’m pregnant I’m not giving up without a fight! But I need ammo…Any positive associations/images/arguments for these names that I could use to convince him?
Or other names with the same feel that he might like more?
P.S. If it’s a girl, she will most likely be [name]Willa[/name]. Which he initially shot down, but now loves. Hehe.
