I think that is a great solution. If he's not being very helpful, there comes a point where you have to draw the line; and as the mama, you should get the final say! Of course, don't purposefully use a name he hates, but he seems to dislike almost everything. What are your 5 combos going to be?Maximus Alexander's Mama

Thanks! I think it's pretty reasonable -- it's just silly for both of us to be driving each other crazy! *pats self on back for amazing problem-solving skillz* I'm still waiting for an answer...too funny!

That's a great idea. Let us know what your combos are. And when she's born, I get the feeling you'll just know what name is right for her. My mom always said that we are born with our own names. Like the parents can try to pick the perfect name, but when the baby comes, you'll just know. My parents spelt my name really weird (Michaila) in hopes that I would have the nickname Haili. I came out and they were like, nope. not a Haili. so it never stuck (but I use it online all the time).
I'm pretty proud that I was able to dig up a few Fia names you hadn't heard yet. I feel pretty accomplished.
out of curiosity, did he ever get back to you on a list of names that he likes?
Have you ever thought of making up your own Fia name? that happened on accident with me- I tried to name a character Cadenza, forgot what I was doing and ended up with Contenza, nn Connie. It's a combo of Contessa and Cadenza...meaning royal and song respectively, so I ended up with Contenza, meaning "royal song"
Can you do something similar with Fia?
Fialyn/Fialynn? (reminds me of my sister Kerilyn nn Keri)
Fialet (like Violet)
I dunno...some of these are pretty awful. Actually, I'd stay away from Fia-k anything if you do end up trying this because then you might get too close to the f bomb and that would be awful. But Fialynn is kind of pretty.

Oh! I should have updated here. There is news that is new.
So we finally had a chance to sit down and have a discussion... in which HE was shocked to learn that I felt like he was just taking advantage of my good humor and research skills -- and I was shocked to learn that he thought that Name-Nerds just love searching for names forever. I quickly explained that name searching for fun is not the same as searching with a particular goal in mind, and it's totally frustrating when it appears that no progress is being made at all!
About the previously promised list from him: I asked him about it quite some time ago, and he commented, "Well, it doesn't seem that necessary now." I interpreted this to mean that he was happy with what I was turning up, so I dropped it. Apparently, what it actually meant was: "since you're a Name Nerd who has been searching endlessly anyway, you just go ahead and knock yourself out -- have fun and let me know what you find." Aaaaahhh!
As you can see, this conversation was very enlightening...for both of us. I wonder how many other Mr. Veto Men out there assumed the same thing, that their Name-Nerd-Women just never ever get tired of searching? Haha!
Unfortunately, he DOESN'T want to choose from a selection of my own combos. But, he agreed to actually make a list -- and has actually been working on it for the last three days (reading the Social Security list!). That's fine with me. All I was asking was to change the rut we were in. We discovered the cause of the rut, and he was quite understanding (and apologetic!) that I felt like I was being imposed on, so we're cool now.
And I guess now the next move is to wait for the list to come in...and then have a Round 3!
