Names you LOVE but SO turned down

I'm just in the mood to look at names and I was wondering what names people absolutely adored but got shot down on. For me, I love Galena for a girl b/c I am a rock nerd but my SO knew a nasty cat named that. I also really like Galen, Leander (hasn't said no but I have a feeling when the time comes...), and Ophelia.

Alyssa, Willow, Melody and River.

But to be fair, Olivia was my idea (a dream) and Liv couldn't possibly be any other name. She just IS Olivia. Sometimes my kids make me wonder if babies do have some mental connection to their mamas in the womb... and I'm not that type.

Before we had children I always like Gilbert Matthew because I love Anne of Green Gables but DH shot that down real quick.

Charis (or Karis) is my fave girl name, and Jude was a boy name I liked- both got shot down cause Hubbs likes more popular names. I'm still praying he comes around with Charis of we ever have a daughter

Kayden & Trey for a boy.

He originally shot down Josie for a girl. He came around though. Our newbie will be a Josie if she's a girl.

Maynard and Remmington.

I may just get my way with Remmington. He caves easily sometimes.

Jude, Miles, and Jolie. I also wanted to use my middle name and maiden name if we had a boy, but DH shot that down because "all the Jordans I know are crazy". Gee thanks. That's okay though, I shot down Logan for him.

Re: Names you LOVE but SO turned down

I just name my cats whatever DH won't let me name my children. So, we've had:
Wyatt
Tucker
Oliver
Darwin
And the next cat is going to be named "Jesse", after Darwin kicks the bucket.
