DH and I have gone back and forth on names for our son. We’ve known very early on that our daughter would be [name_u]Winter[/name_u], his preference. [name_m]Just[/name_m] so you have background on DS’s sister.
Our last name is Brack, my name is [name_f]Tiana[/name_f] and his name is [name_m]Eddie[/name_m]. He came up with [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] as a combination between the both of our names, and his mothers love for [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] Pendergrass. I feel slightly compelled to go with [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] because DH is a junior, though due to his relationship with Sr. he doesn’t want to continue the name. My issues, outside of a slough of other names, are that [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] is cute, until it’s not. It works until you’re in high school, then doesn’t work again until you’re an old man. As far as I’m concerned. That and I’m a fan of balance, if he’s partially naming our son after someone his mom loves, when do my moms interests get incorporated? That may be juvenile of me but moms aside the rest stands.
I should also note that DH is [name_m]Eddie[/name_m], not short for anything, just [name_m]Eddie[/name_m].
I suppose my ask is, would [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] get by in the world with this name or what might an alternative be? I feel slightly entitled to name our son considering I had little say in our daughters name.
