    No I would not use the name. I would just get over it and find one you both like. Simple really!

    I believe using the name would show a complete lack of respect of your husband. I don't care how much I love a name, I could never name our child a name he hates. After all, it is OUR child.

    Damn some of you people are selfish. The ones saying to "do it anyway" I can only imagine the responses if the father went out and put a name out there that he really loved and the mother didn't.

    I really hate the mentality that the "woman" should make all the decisions. Such crap. It should be used as a middle name if you love it that much. It's a name ffs not the future of the planet.

    It sounds as though he's not putting much thought in to it or making any effort to suggest names.

    If that's the case, I would say "this is the name that I love and you can either start putting thought in to it and suggesting alternatives or, come baby's arrival, this is the name we'll go with".

    Default Would you name your child something your husband hates?

    Wow. Some people need to get off their high horse. Never did I say my opinion was worth more. Just wanted advice on how to deal with it.

    It seems you can never get advice without a tonne of judgement and assumptions.

    Why don't you tell him you'll name this baby what you want and as he has no other names to offer up right now, let him name the next baby?

    That's what we did.
    DH was giving DS1 his name whether I liked it or not (I just so happened to like the name), so DS2 was my choice.

    I think you should both agree. I think it would be bought up as a spiteful thing later on in the heat of the moment

    I think you have 3 choices

    1. forget this name and deal with the grief
    2. convince DH that he does like the name, or
    3. find another guy to have a kid with so that you can use the name 😝

    To answer the question, no I would never call my child something that my DH hates.

    No you didn't ask "how to deal with it". The title of your thread is "Would you name your child something your husband hates". That, I take it, is asking the forum if we would..? Majority said no, because we feel both parents should have an equal say so. Telling people to get off their high horse because they don't agree with you is rude.

    Taking my comments out of context, putting words in my mouth & calling me selfish is rude.
