If you have a boy are any of you calling it after the father ?
I was never into calling baby after the father bit confusing too ha . My OH name is Jamie and middle name luke so I was thinking if my little bundle is a boy calling him luke and middle name Jamie . What do u think ?
We personally decided we did not want to do that, DH wants the baby to have their own identity and own name. Of course we realize that baby will have their own identity anyway, but he doesnt want all of the comparisons and feels it would be less if they don't share a name.
That being said I like the idea of you using the middle name, plus I like the name Luke
I personally wouldn't name my child after myself or my oh.
baby will have ohs name as a middle name but personally i would rather name my child a name i liked than just call him after his dad oh feels the same. x
each to their own but i wouldnt personally x
My husband was against it and so am I. We wanted to be the ones who selected his name, not given him a name that my husband's parents picked decades ago to name their child. I asked my husband if he wanted to use his middle name this time for this baby if it was a boy and he said no because he hates his middle name. Ok then. I do use family names, just not immediate family member names and never for a first name. So my son's middle name is Steven after my uncle who passed away.
Our lo won't share his dad's name as his first name, he will have it as his middle name. Don't think I'd like lo and DH to share the same first name, I'd get confused Plus we want lo to have his own identity.
Yes we are! With an addition though of "Jan" to OH's name because that's what my fathers name has as an addition too. Then the middle name will be my father's and eventually the second middle name OH's father's.
So it'll be like:
[First name OH + Jan] [First name my father] [First name OH's father] [Surname]
At first I was unsure but now it's nice, tradition and posterity that we find that important. He's the eldest son/first child of his family and his father is the eldest son/first child of his family, my father is the eldest son/first child of his family and so on and this will be the eldest son/first child of our new little family!
