Should I give in to DH or keep pushing my names?
My husband is stuck on three names: Candace, Grace, and Claire.
I do not like Candace at all. Claire is already used as another daughters middle name.
Grace is simple, sweet, classic and goes well with sibset but I find it a little too normal and prefer it as middle name. We're having our third child...he named #1 (Jack William) , I named #2 (Eila Claire) so now we have to compromise. Baby is due is 3 days!
Should I give in and just name her Grace (since I do like it) or continue to fight it out? Anyone experience the same situation? My list is below if it makes a difference.
Elise, Mira, Emilia, Cora, Elena, Carys, Elaine

I don't feel like we as the women should have to give in to the men. Especially if you are using his last name. Not a fan of using the same name for 2 kids (Claire). Candace feels really dated to me, and the 2 that I know in real life hate their names and go by a nn. Grace is a bit boring. Your choices are so much better! I think Cora, Carys or Mira would make great options! The others are a bit too similar sounding to your other daughter's name.
So I say stand your ground. Offer up Grace as the middle if you both like it. Cora Grace or Mira Grace. Lovely!Mama to ~Rowan Josephine 1/12~

I think you and your DH should use something like Nymbler: plug in your favorites and come up with something new- something you both like. If you don't mind, then it could be possible to use both yours and your DH's favs for two middle names.
