"I gave my husband a list of names I liked and told him to check or cilrce the ones he liked. If you do 90% of the work in the beginning, you might be able to get him to open up about the kinds of names he likes.He probably doesn't want to get into a fight with you over the name; either that, or simply choosing the name makes the baby real' to him and that's a scary prospect for some people.

"Don't push the issue, it'll really turn him off. Some men just can't be boerehtd with picking names why, I don't know. Nevertheless, choose names you like, write the complete names out on paper put them aside. In time, your husband will ask you about the name, then you can tell him what names you like. I'm sure he'll let you know if there's a name he strongly dislikes. Good luck. Was this answer helpful?" Dec. 26, 2012:
