How did you decide?

[name]How[/name] did you finally decide on your girl(s) name? Did you pick the first and then DP/DH/DF/DB pick the middle? Vice versa? Did you or DP/DH/DF/DB have a name decided on forever? Did you pick from a hat? I’m curious.

With my first, everything I suggested was shot down by my DH. So finally I just wrote down a list of names I liked and told him to mark the ones he liked too. He only liked one of them, so that was it! We had already decided the middle name (named after his father) so that made it easy. So that’s how we got [name]William[/name] [name]Kent[/name].

We are currently expecting #2 and it’s a girl. I’ve had a first name picked out for ages and he “likes it ok”. And he chose the middle name which I like (and it’s my mother’s name) so I think we’re going to go with that unless he suggests something else I like better, but I don’t see that happening.
