I am 37 weeks pregnant and we literally are at a stand still. I want to name our child names from our family. My husband want to go with a made up name or name that has the same initial as family members, but not the same name… For a boy he wants a [name]JR[/name], while I am not at all in favor of a [name]JR[/name], but I can understand why he wants it and would be willing to compromise by changing the middle name (I have no affinity at all for his middle name). So, here are preferences as of right now
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Elaine[/name] - I am absolutley IN [name]LOVE[/name] with this name, to the point I am having a mental block trying to think of anything else I really like. There are many [name]Katherine[/name]'s on both sides of our family and [name]Elaine[/name] is my mother’s middle name.
[name]Anderson[/name] [name]Garner[/name] (a family name from both sides of the family) or [name]James[/name] [name]Dennis[/name] (his father and my father) - I am willing to compromise and go with [name]Reginald[/name] [name]Anderson[/name] or [name]Reginald[/name] [name]Dennis[/name]
My husband’s preferemces:
[name]Melanie[/name] [name]Denise[/name] - This is a mix of my middle name and my mother’s name ([name]Michelle[/name] and [name]Elaine[/name]) and the feminization of my father’s name… I don’t like it.
[name]Reginald[/name] [name]Linwood[/name] - This is his name… he wants it as is. with [name]JR[/name].
By the way I should mention this is our 2nd child and his 3rd. The other children’s names are [name]Ariel[/name] [name]Symone[/name] (his daughter, I am not sure how much input he had on the name, but it has no familial significance it is just names he and ex liked) and [name]Kenneth[/name] [name]Aubrey[/name] (our son named after both of out maternal grandfathers).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
