    Mom likes modern names & Dad likes Old-School how do we pick a name?

    HI- I tend to lean towards more modern names: Dexter, Brett, Tate, Everett. My husband likes old school names like Mack, Mo, Hank, Don. How do we ever find a name that we both like?

    How about an old school name with a modern nn like Theodore nn Theo? If you like the concept, I'll try to come up with some more.

    Arabella * Aviva * Ariella * Maeve * Matilda * Eleanor * Catherine * Charlotte * Beatrice

    your husband's old school names aren't really traditional, they are just modern names from a different time. I would be willing to bet that there is at least one name that overlaps between the two of you. I would have you each take a baby name book ,my favorite is the baby name wizard's, and write down every name you would consider and then see where you overlap.
