How do you compromise with your partner on baby names?
Welcoming a baby into the world is an exciting event. Babies can bring couples together or pull them a part. Discussing and picking out your baby’s name can be difficult, especially when you both have specific names in mind. How can the two of you find a way to civilly pick out a name? Cupid has some advice on how to compromise with your partner on baby names:
1. Remember you want to pick a baby name not pick a fight: There is a way to peacefully pick out baby names, you just have to know how to pick your battles. If the baby name is truly important to you, your partner will most likely understand and agree to a compromise, but before you go there ask yourself how important is the name to your really? More important than your marriage? These are questions you need to ask yourself, when you’re set on a name, but you beau is against it.
2. Be together on this: Couples who are a team and work together have stronger relationships than those who don’t. Sit down, maybe go through a baby names book or make a list of possible baby names together. If your lovebird is against certain names you really like ask if they are willing to agree on an alternative. It could be fun to find a baby name together, just make sure it’s a name you will both love and be happy with.
3. Be reasonable: When choosing baby names be fair. Don’t suggest random or odd names that have no real significance to you or your significant other. You don’t want to look back later in life and not be happy with your choice of baby name nor do you want to look back and say, “yea maybe we should have gone with your suggestion”. If you are both honest and willing to be smart about the potential names it will making deciding on one much easier.
