It would help to know your daughters name and maybe girls names he liked for her. [name]Briar[/name] to e is a girls name and [name]Kodiak[/name] oh man I feel bad for you. Have you asked him what it is that he likes about [name]Kodiak[/name] is it the K sound?
I like your names a lot. I kind of get what he is getting at [name]Kodiak[/name], though it’s not my taste. [name]Briar[/name] is definitely feminine to me.
Have you tried looking at some Japanese names? They might be classy enough for you, but edgy enough for him.
Kaito (I also like the name Kite for a boy)
[name]Toshio[/name] (this is on our list, I like Toshi for short or as an alternative)
Haha I’m glad your husband has you, so your son won’t be named after a dog (or a bear!) I love your favorites, btw. And I like the names you’ve agreed on, but I’m guessing they’re not favorites for either of you. I bet you can do better than a grudging compromise, though!
Our daughter’s name is [name]Juniper[/name]. She passed away shortly after birth so, even though I’m not one for matchy-matchy names, I wanted something “natural” to honor her in a way. If our baby was a girl we had agreed on either [name]Magnolia[/name] or [name]Hazel[/name]. But, since he’s a boy…
I do like a lot of the names you’ve all suggested!! Thanks for the help!
