Who do you think should name a baby?Watch
Good thing i'm not having kids lol
My parents sorted my name out 4 months before I was born. They settled on 2 names, but couldn't decide on which order. Luckily, my Dad won that battle. I love my middle name, but I'm glad it's not my first name.
In my extended family, there are a fair few people with names that are 'family names' (named after others in the family). My cousin's daughter is named after 2 family members, our Grandmother (child's great-grandmother, who passed away 6 years before her birth) and my Auntie (child's grandmother). I think it's rather sweet. But others may disagree.
I have family members who have given their children names I'm simply not keen on, but it's their choice and I will respect that.
So both I guess
In theory i believe that the mother and father should agree (provided they are together otherwise the primary parent should choose). In practise i have already decided what the future children shall be called and i'll have about nine months to convince the future spouce.
