My Boyfriend Hates The Name I Want For My Baby!
August 15, 2012 at 5:32 PM

Hello! I am new to this whole site but have completely went crazy on the forums!

My name is Amanda and I am 10 weeks pregnant! I obviously don't know the sex.
But me and Matthew are already trying to decide on a name. What we would call it if it was a girl and boy.

We have a lot of ideas for a girl. Well he does. My dads name is Kenny and my mums name is Sandra. Since I was a little girl I always said I would name my daughter "Kendra" which is part of my mums name and part of my dads. This isn't the only reason I love this name. I used to get bullied in school about my name and I moved schools so I used to tell people it was Kendra and I didn't get bullied once. Although it was hard to explain why the teachers were calling me something different!

The proplem is when I told my SO this, he point blank refused to even concider it! He thinks its awful. We have had a couple more ideas and I told him he could name it anything he wanted if it was a boy as long as it wasn't stupid.

I am actually beginning to like the sound of other names now but I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and what they done about it!

Thanks in advance!

    I love that Kendra is part of both your mom and dads name!!!!  Screw him!! Its adorable!!! 

    Make a deal with him, You get the girls name, and he gets the boys name. Or He gets the middle name for a girl, and you get the middle name for a boy..

    I'm curious to know what your real name is since you went by Kendra to avoid being teased?

    People made fun of Mandy? Girls at my school used that as a nickname for Amanda. No one made fun of them

    Yes I know people used it as a nickname but I would never. 8 got bullied in school anyway and I guess they just used my name as another thing to bully me about.

    Well I am pregnant with a boy. It doesn't matter. Made this post when we didn't know the sex he still is against the idea of Kendra if we ever have a girl but we picked "Caiden" for the boy I am going to have in March.

    if you have a girl in the future, then maybe he might consider it as a middle name. and you can call her by her middle name. My cousin is named Morgan Alexis and everyone calles her Alex, and DH also has a co-worker who goes by his middle name, so maybe you can still get the name you want ;-)
