0well i fink you both should try and both pick a name you like, then you will both be happy. when you see your baby you will no the rite name. I did when i first held my baby.

you should choose the first name and names that he likes you could use as the childs middle name

It is very important to talk about it and agree. ( The decision is ultimately your, you fill out the birth cert!) My husband and I could only agree on a few and only 1 that we both really liked for a boy. His name is Kohlar James. However, if he got to pick without my judgement involved our son would have been names after his favorite beer (Killian) or bullet type (Remmington). I like Killian but hated it was after the beer. You dont want to regret the decision, names are important!

With our first we found out the sex of the baby, so we looked through the baby name book together and both liked Harper for a boy. The second bub i wanted a surprise with the gender. We both liked different boy and girls names and couldn't agree. So I said to my hubby, if its a boy you can name him, if its a girl I get to name her, It was a girl so I named her Scarlet. If it was a boy my husband had picked out Dylan. definatly talk about it beforehand though, haha my husband liked Scout for a girl, which i dont like at all.

try to ask him again,if he can't still think of any, you can suggest names you like. you can give him selection of names and discuss about it. in that way he can still feel that his opinion is important. hope you can decide asap. baby is on his/her way!

with my first son I had tons of names picked out but didnt go with any of them coz he just didnt look like he suited those names,,,
I agree I think that you both need to decide on a name that you both like
Good luck hope everything goes well.

I don't know! If you told him he could pick the name then he might be upset if you change it on him. Maybe you could sit down with him and see what he has come up with and talk about it.
