Felicity - Should I just move on or be persistent?

Hello. I’ll just start out by saying that I am not pregnant, nor am I trying to get preggo. I just had a daughter 4 months ago, and I miss talking about names. In my head I always imagined that I would have 2 girls and a boy. I always thought that [name]Gwyneth[/name] and [name]Felicity[/name] would make a good sister set. We named our first daughter [name]Gwyneth[/name]. DH and I talked about [name]Felicity[/name] when we were thinking of names, and let’s just say that [name]Felicity[/name] didn’t go over very well with him. At all. He thinks it sounds too much like…uhh this is sort of embarrasing…fellatio. Ugh. And “no daughter of his is going to be named after that”. I sort of see his point, but I still love love love the name. It means “happy” like [name]Gwyneth[/name], and is sort of that frilly style. So, should I even try to persuade him into liking [name]Felicity[/name], or should I just move on. Has anyone else made the [name]Felicity[/name]/fellatio connection before? What other sort of names are like [name]Felicity[/name] that would “go” with [name]Gwyneth[/name]. I really just need a new name to obsess over.

I like [name]Felicity[/name], but I think if your hubby hates it you should probably let it go.

I love [name]Eliza[/name], hubby…not so much :frowning:

I’d try to convince him one more time if it till doesn’t work maybe you could use it as a middle?

[name]Aurora[/name]

Let it go for now.
No use making it a huge debate, especially considering that you may not even get the opportunity to use it. [name]Do[/name] you really want to fight over something that may never happen? You may never have another girl to use the name, so don’t even spend the energy debating it right now. I would just wait and talk about it again IF you find yourself pregnant with another girl. And then, if he still hates it, maybe he would consider using it as a middle name?

Gooooood point. Luckily we never have serious fights over names. It’s just something we debate about…we sort of play the devil’s advocate for each other’s names. It keeps things interesting.

Great suggestions! It’s funny how many of the names you suggested are either on my list or have been on my list.

BTW, you totally depressed me with the thought that I would never have another little girl. :frowning: I prefer to live in my own unrealistic little world. :slight_smile:

LOL! Seriously, I am sorry it depressed you, but I was trying to be realistic. Chances are you will have another little girl, but maybe prepare yourself for the possibility that you won’t (and then it won’y be so disappointing if that happens!) :mrgreen:
