Does anyone have any ideas on how i can convince my boyfriend to let me name our son after my dad?

 

well..... - October 27

nicks mum - October 27

Why doesn't he want to name him after your dad? Does he not get along with your dad or something? Or maybe he wants to name his son after himself. Who has the better reasons for wanting/not wanting the name? These all important things to think about before trying to convince him to change his mind.

Maybe he just doesn't like Owen? Try using it as a middle name and see what he says.

he gets along great with my dad. he wont tell me any names he likes because he says he doesnt like any. and the only reason he wont let me name our baby after my dad is because his dad might feel bad. but he doesnt even get along with his dad they always argue and they really hate each other

His dad's name can be the middle name. My husband's Dad and my Dad have the same name- but we hate it! I think Owen is cute.

I like Owen...use Owen as first name, and boyfriend's dad's name as middle name.

To Nicks Mum- I feel for you because we are in the same boat. I am not naming my baby after my dad, but I like the names Luke and Peter for a boy. My husband doesn't like any names. I bought a book of 55,000 names and he reads out names like Zeus and Herculus (I knew I should of bought a book with less names that you would want to name your child with). He is totally rediculous about the whole thing and says he doesn't like any names. We are 18 weeks pregnant and people are asking all the time what are you naming the baby and I just say we are calling him/her baby until it's five and picks it's own name. Maybe they'll like the name Zeus? If this child is anything like it's father I am destined to go crazy. Bottom line is this----Tell him to get serious about a name or this child will be called Owen. Nuff said, because the answer that he doesn't like any name is not acceptable. I told my husband if he doesn't start to get serious about the name then I am going to put on the birth certificate what I like and be done with it. He could either get on my train and we can do this together (like I think your suppose to do) or You/I should just do it ourselves (don't want to do that, but if I am forced into it). Good Luck. The subject of names is a touchy one for me as you can tell since my DH is being totally idiotic about it.

 

TO JP - October 28

I just read your post and oh did that bring back a few memories...when we found out this one was a boy I started coming up with names but I was going to leave it up to dh cause I have 2 boys from my ex and this is my husbands first so I figured he should name him well...he was coming up with really non-sense names that were horrid I really did not think he was gonna be serious at all but one day we were sitting there talking about names and he just pops out with a good one..Logan well that is going to be our son's first name middle name has not been chosen as of yet can't get him to pick anything for the middle name other than Cornholeio (which if you have ever watched Bevis and B___thead you will know where that came from) I know he is only joking but just give hubby some time he will come up with a name your just gonna have to give him some time to realize this kid is real and on the way...good luck

Thanks for your input. It's so nice to know that my husband isn't the only guy out there who is five years old when it comes to this subject. Besides the whole picking the name thing he really is a great person.

 

TO JP - October 28

yeah mine hubby too I think they are all just big kids sometimes!! He will get serious before the child is born I am sure of it!! I just wanted you to know you were not alone cause I felt that way myself...one other thing he picked the name Logan cause and I quote "Its Woverine's real name" (from the X-MEN) he really loves the X-MEN ha ha lol

I love the name Owen but if DH doesn't like it then why don't you comprimise and use it as a MN.

 

nicks mum - October 29

He wouldnt let me use it for a middle name with my 1st so i doubt he will let me do it

To the person signed "to JP"----Well Friday night DH and I where talking about this thread and I told him that apparently I am not the only woman having problems with with their husband when it comes to names. I told him that one of the husbands finally did come around with a name when everything was said and done. He said what name did they pick? I said Logan. He said I like it. He told me to put it on the list. I don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but DH seems to be totally conveniced it's a boy. He has started referring to my belly as Logan. I thought you would like that. Thanks to you and your husband I at least have a boys name we agree on. Thank you!!!!
