In need of help...Please. Due 2nd week of October

My husband and I are having difficulty deciding on a name or agreeing on anything. We have completely opposite taste. I like ethnic names(Italian, which I am) he does not. He likes trendy, plain names…is how I like to describe it. I really need any suggestions for First and Middle names. The baby’s last name is Polish and starts with G ending [name]SKI[/name]. Please help…I would really like to come to a decision for our little sweetheart…just need to perfect combination.

Thanks in advance.


To sort of narrow our search down to help you, what names do you like that your husband has vetoed? And what names did your husband like that you vetoed? Hopefully by knowing these names we can help you get closer to choosing a name for your new daughter!

Here are some basic italian names:


Girls only at this point, sorry… lol

My husband likes
[name]Madeline[/name] ([name]Maddy[/name])

I like

Ok variations of the names you both like that could be compromises:


Italian names that don’t sound “too Italian” that your hubby may like:

[name]Teresa[/name] (maybe nn [name]Tess[/name] or [name]Tessa[/name])
[name]Mattea[/name] (ok this sounds very Italian but it is lovely! lol)

Best of luck!

I love [name]Lucia[/name]. Would he go for that?

The first name that came to mind for you was [name]Eva[/name]. It is very international but should be mellow enough for hubby. What do you think of [name]Eva[/name]?


You’ve had so many great suggestions!

[name]Clara[/name] sprung to mind as a beautiful compromise - Italian for you, feminine and beautiful; sounds similar to [name]Keira[/name] for him, and is fairly simple.

Also, how about [name]Lilah[/name] ([name]LEE[/name]-la)? It’s similar to [name]Lily[/name] for you, but has the same feel as some of your husband’s choices.

Good luck! [name]Auburn[/name]
