    Exclamation Poll: hubby and I can’t agree

    Baby boy due in November!
    Middle name Paul after my grandfather, last name Raymond
    My husband wants Wesley. I say it reminds me of Leslie, which I can’t stand.
    I want Charlie. I had a dream where I was calling the baby Charlie, but hubby hates it.
    We are stuck in a big rut! Help please

    I adore Charlie. Grant would be my second choice.

    I don't really think either Wesley or Charlie will work if one of you hates each name. It's fine if the name you end up with is neither of your favorite names, but it doesn't seem fair to can't pick one that either you or your husband hate. I don't know your guys' opinions on the other names in the poll but I think Jett Paul Raymond or Grant Paul Raymond is nice. Not really feeling Forrest personally.

    Suggestions:
    Jasper
    Casper
    Caspian
    Everett
    Rhett
    Wyatt
    Everest
    Bodhi
    George
    Frederick
    Edward

    I really quite like Wesley, and while it is somewhat similar Sounding to Leslie I get totally different vibes from both names.

    That being said, if you don't like it, and DH doesn't like Charlie, it seems unlikely that either name is the right choice.

    From your poll I voted for Forrest. I think it has some of the appeal of bothvWesley and Charlie and if it's a name you both like than it's a much more viable option.

    I really like Wesley but I don't like Wes as a nickname. And I really like Charlie as a first name not a nickname.

    So, I will vote for Jett.

    Ditto to previous posters that I think you need to keep looking for a name that both of you like. I can’t imagine having to name my child a name that I hate and TBH, there are thousands of names out there so if both of you truly, and genuinely, try to find common ground you will both end up happy. Good luck to both of you.

    I think as you both have issues with each other's favourites, both Wesley & Charlie should be scrapped, and something else found that you both like and can agree to. Of the three others, assuming you both like these ones, Forrest is my pick.

    Just a quick note to say,
    I'm always up for a chat, so feel free to say 'Hey'!

    I like both Wesley and Charles/Charlie, but if both you and your husband don’t like one or the other then perhaps you should reconsider. Also, you have to imagine how that name will stick with your child. I feel like Forrest and Jett would be cute for a baby, but then as he grows up, would it still have that affect? An older, middle aged man, a father and possibly a grandfather, named “Forrest” or “Jett”...

    I really hope I don’t sound rude, I just want to be completely honest

    Here are my suggestions, I’m sorry if you dislike them:

    Christopher or Christian Paul Raymond
    Daniel Paul Raymond
    Dylan Paul Raymond
    Ethan Paul Raymond
    Graham or Grayson Paul Raymond
    Jackson Paul Raymond
    Keanu Paul Raymond
    Tailor Paul Raymond
    Tyler Paul Raymond

    It sounds like you both need to put your favourites aside and keep on searching for one you both love. All the best finding the right name!
