It just so happens that my mom came up with two names that I like. The father doesn't tho, we are not in a relationship or married so I try to explain to him that I actually dnt have to give the child his last name. It took me a lot to allow him the last name. I feel like I should have the right to get the first two at least the first, he keeps trying to argue it but I feel that I dnt even have to include him in the naming at all. I'm nt tryin to stop him from being a father I just dnt like ghetto baby name he comes up with.... Am I wrong/right/selfish?
I think that if he is the father and he is going to be in the babies life he should be able to have some say in the name. I think you both need to come up with a name you both like. It may be hard to do at first but not impossable.
I'm actually not giving my baby just her father's last name, we're hyphenating it, my last name then his...I would guess if I did concede to it (although no way I was going to though lol), I would probably want rights to the first name too.
Maybe you can both just have veto power so neither of you has to deal with a name you hate? Eventually you'd both find a name you like.
