So, two days ago DH drops quite the bomb on me, he doesn't really like anything on our list:smileysurprised:

He is only set on his fav girl name, isn't sure at all about the other girl choices, and flat out doesn't think any of our boy choices are any good

Gosh, I'm sorry Jina! An obscure Arabic name? What's that all about? Maybe if you share it with us, we can tweak it to your liking?

I agree w/pp that he can't just say it's all over and there's only one name on the table now. It's HIS turn to think of a bunch of names and run them past *you* now. Men. Mine keeps changing ours' middle name. I'm like, "can you please just make up your mind so I can get excited?"

Well, I was convinced to just throw in the towel on the name, but you all had me thinking more about it.

The Scottish version was actually on our list when we were naming Penn.

Oh man Jina - that stinks!

Are you still ok with Elspeth?

What were your boy choices again?

I would maybe go back to some of your favorites and say - which of these can you live with? If it is a girl, I am fine with Elspeth (hubby's love) and if it is a boy, you need to be fine with ___________ (your love).

That or just say, we are wiping the slate clean and finding something we both like.

I hope your little one cooks a little longer for you! I had some issues around 34 weeks - hitting 36 weeks tomorrow and thankfully no baby yet! So hopefully he/she follows suit! Maybe give yourself a 2 week deadline - spend a week focused on girl names and a week focused on boy names...

BTW - all these ideas are coming from someone who is in a blah mood about our names right now!

I'm not feeling "Leeth" rhymes with Keith, although that is how I pronounced it in my mind until I read further. "LAYth" on the other hand is pretty cool! I wonder if you could figure out an alternate spelling to make it more clear? Lathe?
