[name_f]My[/name_f] wife consulted this site multiple times a day since [name_u]January[/name_u] until the last day of [name_f]April[/name_f] on her quest to name our son.
In the end, because nothing turned out like we thought it would, my wife didn’t get to name her little boy or even hold him, and my mother in law took him home because I couldn’t keep it together.
She and the hospital staff kept asking me what his name was, and I didn’t pull through. I just know the names she liked.
I made no decision and my mother in law made it for me. There was a lot of pressure not to walk out of the hospital without a name. I was a mess, I was angry and just said “you name him”.
The name she gave our son is not a bad one, but it wasn’t even on my wife’s list of ideas.
Now my son is back home with me, and I call him baby and little boy, His name is weird to me right now… but I guess everything is weird without her.
Is this his name now? I honestly don’t know what I would name him if I was to change it. He’s going to be one month old in a week and two days, so maybe this is how things are now.
