Are there names that you love, but he won't agree to add them to the list?

Guilt trips aren't working here LOL "I'm the one who has to give birth to the child!" lol

Here are some I have really tried to get him on board with to no avail: Ariadne, Georgia, Imogen, Jane, Jemima, Mae, Margaret, Mina, Mira, Milena, Rose, Sabina, Sabine, Zara, Zinnia. I still hold out hope for a few of these even though there are no signs of his mind changing.

Caroline you crack me up! :)

I was hoping that carrying and birthing the baby would totally work as a guilt trip! I'm sorry to hear it doesn't - darn it! :)

My SO has 2 kids from a previous marriage ... so I"ll try the "you've gotten to name a baby before, I never have" tactic. Is that evil? :)

I just saw your due date is September 16th! I'm getting married on the 14th! How exciting! :)

He said no way to Flynn which I love. I'm not positive I'd use Rye but I'd love to consider it. It's almost worse to say " probably not" instead of "no way" which is the reason I could never fully let go of Lewis.

Annora is a girl name I love that he said no way to. Calloway is one im not sure Id use but again I would have loved to at least consider it. Eve is another one he "probably not"ed when in reality he wouldnt use it.

lol @ iv_aingeal - I would use that guilt trip if it fit my situation!!! I'm pretty sure a friend of mine from work did that! "You've got 2 kids you got to help name. I'm naming him Maddox" and she did!

Congrats on your wedding! Exciting! I loved my wedding... I wish I could do it all over again (minus the ceremony and bill.... I guess I just want a giant party with a pretty dress hahahaha)

Some of the names my DH vetoed: Carys, Claire, Adrienne, Avery (girl), Annabelle, Everleigh.

The one he's said "maybe" to that we MIGHT use - Ashlyn. Though I'm not in love with it as much now as I was when I first added it to the list.... BTW, his reason for liking it? "There's a video game character I like named Ash. But I wouldn't want to name her JUST Ash because that would be too much like naming her after Ash Ketchum from Pokemon." ....... My husband is a GIANT nerd!!!!

Sweet! Maybe that tactic will work for me then! ;)

I love the same names as you, as you already know. :)
