Both parents should come to a mutual agreement.

Hahaha. You could tell that that's an apostle Paul argument because it's inane, arrogant, and idiotic.

Also it contradicts King Solomon where he holds a woman in high regard for good teaching.


She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.


The apostle Paul contradicting Solomon-like wisdom is just a thing that happens like literally every time he opened his mouth.

She can have the first name.

But my kid is going to carry my last name no matter what.

Wife should choose the first name, husband should choose the middle name. ^_^

I'm naming my child megastophalies, and no woman will stop me.

The Koran has a similar one, as you'd guess.

In short, if you're Muslim or Christian, the man names the child.
If you're, basically, anything else, you discuss it civilized-like.


I've put my response as a spoiler just because its a bit long.

This is too much responsibility for the modern citizen.

That's why they should have a federal bureau of names. With a national data base they can make sure there's never too many people named Richard in any classroom or workplace in the nation. After all, when you're trapped in one location for 8 hours, no one wants there to be too many Dicks present.

Honestly, in my opinion, whoever comes up with the least stupid name has earned the right to name the child. That name will stick with them for the rest of their life, or until they have the desire to legally change it...

Im sorry but what a stupid question. How about both the mother and father discuss what they should call their children. If i had a child and had no say at all in the naming of it i'd be deeply saddened .

Depends on the relationship me thinks.

But still, I'd personally say it should be a bit of both. I mean, you should be able to agree on a name :).

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).


I guess 18 years of working to death to feed and keep a roof over the head of the child doesnt equal 9 months and a few hours of labor with like a less then 1% chance of actually dieing during birth....

Now you see how retarded i sounded? ya thats what your post sounded like.
