Yesterday, we told some friends and family “our” name choices for our twin girls. ([name]Gwendolen[/name] & [name]Mirabelle[/name] for those that haven’t been following). The names didn’t get the best reception. I was prepared for that. I know people come around and the names are not really mainstream so they just need time to settle with people. However, my DH has decided he doesn’t like either name now. (people’s reaction + he says he never really loved them)
He wants to start over. He wasn’t really involved in either of our older girls name decision or early on in this pregnancy. He’s never really shown that much of an interest (positive or negative) on any names I picked. So, I am taking him seriously and trying to be reasonable. I’m ticked that he waited so long to tell me he’s not comfortable with the names. I really grew attached to them, but honestly, I did have other names I loved/called our older two pre-birth and we all survived that. I can give up these names if it means we’ll both love the new picks-- and I have faith there is another perfect pair out there for us.
Here’s the list of names we can agree on at this point. Thoughts? please help me put some combos together so I can run them by him. It’s kinda long, but I wanted to give you the whole thing cause I’m really lost right now!
[name]Francesca[/name] (I prefer [name]Francine[/name], but I’m throwing it on there anyway- I’m a little worn out and willing to take whatever right now.)
