    great name for a race horse, or a great dane, or a racing greyhound, but absolutely terrible for a child. He has to be joking, or I would be refusing to procreate with him. marie.

    Another Pixies fan here. Not enough of a fan to use that name though. That sure is an unusual one.

    Haha I agree with this!!!

    My ex wanted to name DD either Max or Austin as his surname was Power, there was no way in hell I was agreeing to either, kids get teased enough these days IMO.

    Some people really don't get a name is for life...

    My DH wants to name (if we have) a boy Hercules - he's dead serious about it and thinks its great. I think the name is ok except for gigantor...
    I'm inclined to letting him have Hercules... I figure its his way to bond, we can always give our misfortune sons nicknames

    'china'
    (he always calls his mates 'china'. as in 'hello china!!) f*&k knows why...!!
    i said no - seriously, we aren't chinese sweetie. we've never even been to china and it actually sounds more like a girl's name

    his next pick was
    bluey
    since i had vetoed his first idea (which i had never done with any other names he had suggested) i said okay, even though i was a bit skeptical.

    btw we had a girl
    and we have since gotten a puppy named (you guessed it) bluey
    China is rhyming slang. China plate = mate

    Utterly ridiculous!


    Doesn't he know the masculine form is Francis?


    Oh look- *if* he is serious, counter is back with your own? (Chiquita Banana Hammock or something similar, that you know he will balk at) Then just nicely explain that the feeling he is getting about the name you suggested, is the one you get about the one he suggested. Names have to be mutually agreed upon- I had lists longer than my arms for my boys and DP scrubbed every single damn one of them. But I just persevered in looking, because it's no use naming your child a name that your partner (their parent) HATES.

    And you can always pull the "I just went through labour" card right after the birth and guilt him out of his choice
