Fighting Over Names! UGH!

Did you know that fighting over baby's name is THE most common fight among expectant parents?

Little girls often dream of what they will one day name their babies. But, once they’re grown up and expecting those babies, it can come as a rude shock when their partners actually express ideas and preferences of their own. 

In fact, a recent U.K. survey reveals that picking a baby name is the most common fight among expectant parents.

Most parents-to-be battle over baby names-

Wow!  I know that my DH and I didn't always agree, but I don't think we ever had a fight over baby names!  How about you and your partner?  Was it easy to settle on a name or did it cause a bit of upset between the two of you?

nope, we never had any issues over picking names.  we definitely had different opinions (he hated some of my favorites and vice versa) but it was never an issue and we were able to settle without any fighting! :)
