My husband and I are at a complete standstill. Our son is ten weeks old !!! and we still can’t agree on his name. The only name my husband really likes is [name]Max[/name]. His last name is a harsh-sounding [name]German[/name] name, so I think with “[name]Max[/name]” it’s all a bit much – especially since he is 3/4 British.
It really bothers me that his last name doesn’t reflect his background more, so I was really hoping to find a name that seemed more “English”. I really like [name]Finn[/name] and [name]Griffin[/name], these sort of softer names. Our daughter has been calling her brother [name]Teddy[/name] (which we both like a lot, and which really suits him), so I’ve been trying to come up with name that [name]Teddy[/name] could be short for (but we don’t like [name]Edward[/name] or [name]Theodore[/name]). I thought we could call him [name]Aidan[/name], and then call him [name]Teddy[/name] for short – but hubby says he hates [name]Aidan[/name].
I’ve also tried to come up with names that I like that [name]Max[/name] could be short for, other than Maximiliam, [name]Maxwell[/name], [name]Maximo[/name] etc etc which I don’t like (maybe [name]Mason[/name], [name]Magnus[/name], [name]Maddox[/name] or [name]Cormac[/name]?) Husband not too keen on any of them. I feel like I’ve over-analyzed everything to the point where I’m just paralyzed, and my husband seems unable to compromise at all. Does anybody have any great ideas?
