We’ve been trying for a sibling for our daughter [name]Avery[/name] with no such luck so far, but with plenty of discussion on baby names. We chose [name]Avery[/name] because I myself have a unisex name, as does my sister and I happen to like them (though I know they aren’t as well loved on nameberry, lol). But I like fairly established unisex names, not names that have long been used on boys and are now trending towards the girls (such as [name]Dylan[/name], [name]Evan[/name], etc). My husband says [name]Evan[/name] is THE one if we have a girl. THE ONE! I’ve tried so many times to come up with alternatives, even going so far as to suggest names I don’t really like ([name]Devin[/name], [name]Tevin[/name], [name]Evangeline[/name] w/nn [name]Evan[/name]) and he refuses to compromise.
Is this one of those times where I just say, “okay, well, I’m just going to have to pick out the name if we wind up having a girl?” Are there other alternatives I’m overlooking here? Maybe I’m blowing this out of proportion, but we’ve had this argument so many times I just had to make sure I’m right in standing my ground here. LOL He won’t listen to reason, he isn’t willing to compromise, and he doesn’t want to look for other names because this is THE one he fell in love with and will always sincerely love for the rest of his life (pretty much a direct quote). Am I being mean if he truly loves the name that much to deny him? Hopefully we wind up just having a boy.
