I hate our boy name :(
I know it's perhaps too early to be talking about this, but I HATE our boy name and DH won't budge. As long as I've known him he's wanted to name his first son after his Dad and Grandfather, bothed Laurence Daniel. I HATE hate hate hate hate laurence (apologies to anyone whose son/father/brother/husband is laurence), but I was willing to compromise because I thought we could call him by a middle name.
For a while he wanted to do Daniel, but I thought that seem as how there's already two living laurence daniels...and i hate the nickname Dan AND Danny...that we could do better. Then he came up with Neal (his middle name) and THAT is where he settled. Laurence Neal.
I'm sorry, but i hate almost everything about it. Laurence is the worst...both dad and grandpa are called "Larry" and I will die if my son is Larry. DIE. Neal is OK, I guess...but it's spelled wrong and I hate that. Plus...neal...ew. I would never choose that if it weren't Colin's own middle name.
I don't know what to do. I feel torn because he LOVES the name. He's super close to his dad and grandpa and loves that the baby will be named in part after him...and Neal is a family name as well. He refuses to even discuss the option of something different because "I already agreed to it." I tell him...nothing is freaking agreed to until there's a baby and it's on a birth certificate.
I guess I either need A. condolances, B. reasons why this is OK or C. Ways to make him budge.
