Whoever can think of one 🤷*♀️ I know someone who has two names because their parents both called them by separate names

Names should be assigned at birth by a government algorithm.

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.

If that's the case I wouldn't be an advocate of it, if it decided to name my child Bob.

If the summer taught you anything it is that people don't trust algorithms because they don't pander to special interests. The algorithm would end up calling some Islamic child a really British name like Charles or a pasty faced child from the Highlands Mohammed.

Whoever is/are the parent(s).

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.

In my opinion, the mum. It's the mum who carries the baby for 9 months and goes through the pain and labour etc so the least she deserves is the right to name the baby whichever name she chooses. Of course she should take the dads' choice of name(s) into consideration, but ultimately I think the decision should lie with her.

My mother agreed to call my sister Claire but when she got to the registry office named her Margaret after her sister.

If they are not together then it's the one who the child lives with.
