Since I spend so much time telling you all the names my dh doesn’t like, I thought I would tell you the few he actually does like. I like most of the names too. . .but they are all awfully popular.
[name]Olivia[/name] - I [name]LOVE[/name] this name too, nn [name]Ollie[/name] or [name]Livvy[/name] are adorable, [name]Ollie[/name] & [name]Isla[/name], pretty cute right? But it’s top 5 in [name]Vermont[/name] and has been #1 in New Hampshire for many years. That’s just too popular, right?
[name]Abigail[/name] - I also love this name, not as much as [name]Olivia[/name] but nn [name]Abby[/name] is adorable, and again [name]Isla[/name] & [name]Abby[/name] sound pretty cute. This is another one in the top 10 in New [name]England[/name] though. . .
[name]Tess[/name] - he really likes this, so does my mother, but to me it feels like it’s lacking something. . .like it’s missing the rest of the name.
[name]Marguarite[/name] - this was his grammy’s name. He likes [name]Maggie[/name] as a nn, [name]Mag[/name]-Pie. I just think [name]Marguarite[/name] is such a mouthful, especially with our long last name (looks/sounds like Shutterworks) My mom wants us to just use [name]Maggie[/name] but I don’t like the idea of using a nn as a full name, I feel like it eliminates so many options for the kid.
So what do you think? We could settle on a name tonight if I chose one of his picks! WDYT, would you use a name you both love, even though it’s outrageously popular (not trendy though, classic. . .just suuuper popular), or do you have any thoughts on the other choices?
