What are some ways to compromise with your partner on a baby name?

Cupid’s Pulse:


One of the first sources of disagreements between you and your partner may be your first baby’s name.  It’s okay to have disagreements in a relationship, but it’s important to approach them in the right way.  Cupid has some ideas on how to come to an agreement about your newborn child’s name:

1. Pick a theme: Your partner loves the name Joseph.  You adore the name Adam.  If you’re having trouble agreeing on a baby name, try coming up with a theme that you both like.  For example, you may find that both of you want a long name or a religious name.  Once you’ve found a mutual theme, you can begin to narrow down your choices.

2. Use pen and paper: You may find it helpful for you and your spouse to write down all the names you would be willing to consider for your child and then share them with each other.  Chances are that you will find common ground.

3. Combine: If you’re both set on a name, why not be creative and combine the two?  If they go well together, one can be the first name and the other can be the middle.
