Do you think that the wife or the husband should name the child they have? I think the wife should because she goes through the 9 months and then there's the excruciating pain of childbirth. I mean, it's not like the husband has no say, but I think the woman has especially earned it.
Please give an explanation for your opinion :)
Also, let's not to be sexist to each other please.

A name can effect a person life. They've done studies that have proven names do impact how people see you, a Richard, can become a C.E.O, while a Rainbow can not.

So, really in my mind it comes down to who can think of a better name.

It should not be strictly one parents choice. Both should come together and find a name they both agree with. The woman may have carried the child and gave birth but the guy doesn't always have the best time being around the pregnant woman either. Not to mention having the kid is in itself the reward for going through the entire pregnancy. There doesn't need to be any chance of resentment by having just one person deciding such a thing when there are other, better, solutions.

Think it should be something both agrees on, but if that is impossible they should both compromise i think, for example having the name the other one wants as a middle name. Easier said than done tho :/

It's something they should both agree on and if they intend to raise the child together neither should supersede the other. Going through pregnancy is one thing but if the man is hopefully going to be contributing time, income, and sanity to raising the kid for the next 18+ years the same way the wife is then he should get just as much say in the matter.

Whoever the wife decides should name the child. She risks her life in childbirth, and has the crap stretched out of her privates (and if stuff goes wrong, gets sliced up too). Giving birth is just like having surgery without anesthesia, the man is just a spectator. No amount of monetary compensation or act (except lifesaving) can ever equal the "cost" of a life. The woman's gift to her husband is the child, his gift should at the very least be to not argue about whatever name she chooses.......besides, the husband already gave the child his last name.........

........but I think traditionally the husband names the sons and the wife names the daughters.....This is one of the many things that should be discussed before marriage(how each other feels about the issue).

Idk if it's weird but I already have my names picked out for my future children. I like what I picked but i'm personally willing to change and compromise with a future spouse because the child is ours. But I really like my names D:

You always get the son in the divorce, isnt that enough? :P

Anyways its a shame the kid themself couldnt come up with a name. So many people go through a long part of their life disliking their name.

Both parents should have a say in the naming of child. Since parenting is a collaboration no one parent is doing more than the other. After all it is their child not just his or hers.


That would end in a train wreak, if that was allowed my name would be Sonic since I was convinced that was a great name for myself when I was 5.

Both should weigh the different names they have picked and discuss it, even though the husband is the head of the household, he should be in unity with the wife in the selection of an appropriate name.
