How would you feel if your husband names your child/baby in the name of his ex? I hated him so much when i knew about it, but what can i do, my daughter is now 4 years old. If I had known it at that time, i would never have allowed it.

Well since it is done all you can do is accept it and move on, but I think I would have had a fit also. I wonder how he would feel if you had a son and named him after you ex?

I would be so mad at him if he wanted to name our daughter after an ex. I could NEVER imagine naming my son after and ex, it's almost like a slap in the face. It's like saying even though he marries me yet if he names our daughter after an ex, he still thinks of her, know what I mean.

I agree with you Jeze. I could never imagine naming my son after an ex and I would be so mad at my husband and tell him if he ever wanted to TRY to have another child we were not naming a daughter after his ex. My grandfather did that. He named my oldest aunt after his ex-girlfriend and my grandma was livid, but still allowed it because she liked the name.

i think that you have to let it pass...anyway he is your husband and its already assurance on your part...though its your baby, its just a name, the fact that he married you and you bore his baby, it means that he loves you and by that you should forgive him...

We actually do have a daughter that has the same name as one of my hubby's exes. LOL, I tease him about it from time to time, but it just happens that we both liked the name. She's not named for his ex, but rather shares the name. He didn't want to go with the name because it was the name of an old girlfriend. I asked him if she still meant anything to him and he said no, so I said I don't know what the problem is. I loved the name, I don't really care who else has the same name. Maybe your spouse just really liked that name and it has nothing to do with the old flame.
