Anyone thinking about names yet?

My husband and I struggle with naming. We did with our first and we think we will again. We can agree eventually but there is a lot we don't agree on.

We are preparing to do the great name swap. He has his list and I have my list with the names we have collected that we like. We swap lists and contemplate the other persons lists.

I think this works best for us because you have time to work passed any initial reaction you might have to a name and think about it.

I am a bit worried because my husband has been especially open about this list. There is a lot of old english names on his list that I don't think I'll be fond of. And I'm worried if he'll like the names I like. My husband is more stubborn than I am and I am generally more likely to be open to his names than his mine (if he doesn't like them).

The 4 names we had narrowed down for #1 were originally his idea, as an example. I liked all the names a lot but it stinks that it didn't matter what I came up with.

My only saving grace is that if I don't like the names on his list he'll have no choice to concede! LOL I may be less stubborn but I'm not a push over
