    HELP!! MY DH only likes 1 boy name... and it's Peter!

    Nothing against anyone named Peter. I know a lot of nice ones. But I also know a Peter that I dated, several of DH's cousin's are named Peter so the name already taken, and I don't like that fact that Peter is the nickname for... for "you know what". So that's plenty of reasons I don't want to name a boy Peter. So how do I get DH to like another name? He won't go with his own name and have a Jr. and he hasn't come up with any other suggestions.

    He only likes Andrew mildly for a boy and Isabelle mildly for a girl. He seems ti like names in the family that everyone has already used and they are names of close 1st cousins that we see a lot-LOL!

    Our last name is very long, 3 syllables, and begins with V. It is a Dutch name but any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Yikes!

    Can you mention that you have an ex boyfriend named "Peter"? Would that put an end to it?

    I am running out the door but I will put some thought into it tonight.

    LOL I like Rachel's suggestion.. say well you know that guy that was " before you" well his name was Peter and I just can't imagine naming my kid that.. Really other than that I have no suggestions.. my Dh likes the name Dale.. and it doesn't sound bad with our last name but it sounds like an old man to me.. maybe we can get them to agree on some cool names soon

    DH lknow I dated this guy name Peter and he knows the guy. But DH loves the name Peter because he had this great fun uncle named Peter. I am adamant it is the ONLY name I do not like. I will take any other names and DH is just saying Peter is the ONLY name he likes and NOT offering other suggestions.

    Mav,

    Can you compromise and use "Peter" as a middle name?

    Yea, I could do Peter as a middle name, but then DH hasn't offered any suggestions for a boy's FIRST name. I also like giving a fancy family name as a middle name. DS full name is 9 syllables long so we would have to do the 2nd child equal justice with a fancy name-LOL!
