    What names does your man like? Any guy-approved lists?

    Every day we see at least one tired Berry on here complaining about how her man's tastes vary so differently from her own. Sometimes couples can spend every last second of their nine-month pregnancy fretting and fighting over names. I'd like to take a few minutes to hear the other side, the guys' side, and see what names they love. What names does your husband/fiancé/boyfriend/partner/baby daddy like? If it was up to him, what would your baby be named? Or what do you think are "guy friendly" names?

    my OH is French and so he likes lots of names that don't always work in English (Victoire, Blandine, Romain...) Other than that he has a very classic taste (but very common) he likes names like Charlotte and Juliette. It's hard to get him to agree on names, as some names I love just don't work in French. The only ones we have in common at the moment are June and Eléanor for a girl and Rupert for a boy.

    Boys Names I'm Loving

    Henry, James, Hugo, Albert, August, Rupert, Arthur, Heath, Victor, William

    Girls Names I'm Loving

    Please vote on my name list!

    My husband loves names as "out there" as I do - just different ones!

    His faves: Ender, Odin, Valencia, Pandora, Lux... It is super hard to find ones we can agree on.

    My husband likes names he's heard before, but doesn't LOVE any particular names, which is hard for me to understand. He's very concerned with what people will think, more so than how the child's name might actually effect them.
    He also doesn't like long names and doesn't care about "flow" very much. Having three two-syllable names in a row does not bother him at all, for example.

    He had some pretty decent names on his list this time though (we each had about 8 names, we are very fussy) and he had the final say overall. I'm not unhappy with his choice

    His list, from memory, had these names:
    Kyra
    Serena
    Selena
    Arista
    Larissa

    He likes names ending in A, obviously
