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.

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:
He likes names ending in A, obviously

I think my husband has Berry-ok taste actually maybe. I actually live in fear that if our lists were put up as a This or That his would get considerably more love than mine.
My husband likes:
Mariposa and Marigold
Owen and Eoin
