I love names. so when i got married i announced ‘i will be naming our children’ he said ok thinking i wasn’t serious. but i was. i have had names picked out for my kids since i was 14. and thats what they are named. he wanted a part in it so i told him ‘ the next one you give birth to, you can name’ needless to say, i’ve named all my children but 4. Those 4 are adopted.

I also told my hubby within a month after I met him that names were important to me and if he didn’t like the ones I did he should find another ride home! Lol. After we got serious he told me how he always wanted to name his son after him. Ironic thing is I almost didn’t date him because I hated his name. Now what do I do? He is adamant on his first son being named after him!

Uh oh, obviously other factors took over on that date that got in the way of your resuming this discussion until now! Have you told him how you feel about his name? Might be time to bite the bullet and be honest, as diplomatically as possible, i.e. I love you more than anything, but I simply do not like your name. Sounds like a clever compromise is in order, i.e. Using his name but agreeing on a nickname or middle name you can use for your child that you both can live with.
