    What are your compromise names?

    I suppose this is more for those of us who haven't begun the compromise process, as I'm guessing those of you who are married/pregnant/TTC have a list made up entirely of compromised names.

    I've been thinking, lately, about the names I'd be willing to compromise on if my future hypothetical SO didn't like any of my names, and I'm curious how they compare to our personal favorites. Maybe we can post a little bit of both. So if you had to compromise, which names would you offer up? And how different are they from your actual favorites?

    I'll post mine below.

    Caleb + Everett + Jack + Avery + Samuel + Caspar + Grant + Rory

    As you can see, my "real" favorites are in my signature. I think I'd probably be quite happy to compromise on these, though:

    Isaac
    Dominic
    Emmett
    Sullivan
    Peter
    Zane

    Zara
    Lenora
    Livana
    Kaia
    Annabel
    Genevieve
    Arabella
    Isabella
    Helena
    Hazel
    Olive
    Penelope
    Rosamund
    Georgia
    Lillian/Lilia

    Although I secretly hope there's at least one from each of my lists that my SO would really, really love (that might even be the one. ).

    Erm, no, more like names you'd be open to using instead, if your SO didn't like your actual favorites. Like, my ideal sibset would be Isabelle, Arianne, Caleb, Olivia, and Everett, but if my future husband hated all of those (heaven forbid!), I can see myself with Peter, Emmett, Lillian, Isaac, and Olive instead, or something like that. Peter isn't a MASSIVE favorite, although it's a lifelong love, and if I couldn't have Caleb, Peter would be a pretty great replacement. Something like that.
