How did you get your SO to come around?

I am very set on the name [name_m]Atlas[/name_m]. My husband likes the name but won’t outright agree to it because he didn’t come up with it / suggest it first :slight_smile: It’s downright infuriating, lol. He knows he is being ridiculous and yet he still won’t agree!

He has admitted that he has started thinking of the baby as [name_m]Atlas[/name_m] and yet will not submit! [name_m]Ah[/name_m]! Time to pull my hair out. He’s suggested other names and I’ve entertained them but I absolutely cannot get over feeling like this baby should be named [name_m]Atlas[/name_m]…

It isn’t even that he has another name that he likes more… He’s just stuck in a “refuse to agree or move forward” sort of spot. We’ve got plenty of time to wait, I guess, but I’m hoping that someone else has a similar situation they worked through? [name_u]Experience[/name_u]? Tips? Advice?


[name_m]Just[/name_m] wait until the baby comes! He’ll listen when the baby is here!

The strategist in me says you should move on to other favorites and let him talk you back into [name_m]Atlas[/name_m].

Well, maybe he’s secretly trying to get you to come around to something else! I don’t know! It’s hard to agree sometimes, but I’ve definitely been careful not to push or try to force names. That just makes names unpleasant. I have a friend that just had b/g twins, and she just gave him a list of her favorites and he was just reluctant to chose anything–but he also didn’t give any suggestions, haha–and then at the hospital decided he loved her initial choices.
