Both should come to an agreement. Well I'm sure in different cultures it differs.

Both parents should have a say, as the kid isn't made from magic and fairy dust...
Both made it, both should name it.

That being said, I saw a lot of my guy friends sayin: 'meh i let my gf/wife choose, I don't mind'.

Personally if i have kids one day, I will want my bf to agree on names with me.

It should be obvious that the child should just name itself.

Not true, actually. What is known today as the Orthodox Church was the first, one with Catholics until 1057. Then the Catholic Church split from them.


With all due respect, I'll have to disagree w/you on that. The 1st reference of any Church was the Catholic Church in 107 A.D. by a bishop by the name of St. Ignatius of Antioch, "Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church."
Also, I'm not quite sure where u got the date of 1057, but I think the popular myth is that the formal "split" actually began at 1054. However, even that, I believe, is debatable. Here's why (in a nutshell). In 1054, Cardinal Humbert laid a bull of excommunication against the patriarch of Constantinople at the time, Patriarch Cerularius. So Cerularius and only him was supposedly excommunicated. However, even that is very much debated since the bull wasn't even signed, nor seen by the Pope, as he was dead at the time. In response, Cerularius retaliated by anathematizing Cardinal Humbert (but NOT the Roman Church - he abstained from any attack on the pope or the Latin Church). This dispute, among others, remained something of which ordinary Christians (the laity) in East and West were largely unaware. It actually wasn't until the 1450s, when the "formal split" actually occurred when most of the Eastern churches repudiated their union with Rome, and this is the split that persists to this day.


Ah yes, sorry. I did mean to say 1054, not 57.
The particular name quoted in 107 does not mean much, considering the word "catholic" means universal. The Orthodox Church is catholic, just not Roman Catholic.
The Western Church gave the order - they caused the split. The Eastern Church literally sent a messenger running after the Western one saying "Why are you doing this? Take it back!" and they refused.
At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter anyway. It's just misinformation to say the Roman Catholic church was the original one, because it wasn't.
When you observe them in practice, the Orthodox Church has retained a lot more tradition and runs itself much more like the early church did too, without adding doctrine like the Roman church likes to.

Unless you're taking an very long-winded approach to saying that the church should be naming children, I think you've sidetracked this thread a little bit.

Anyways, it should be an mutual agreement/comprimise.

Though I will add that if any of the parents wants to name their child after some type of fast food or anything equally dumb they should, by law, have their naming rights removed.

Some of the names going around now a days.. Sweet moonlamp, glitter, Bieber (as a first name!?), Stealth, Rusp, Gay etc etc.. Just to name a few, the ones I mentioned are real names of real life babies/children that I've actually met. And parents wonder why their children gets bullied.. People really need to consider the kids when giving them names, they're the ones that'll have to live with it..

I think they should decide together and come to a consensus.

So, you're saying I was right about Christianity teaching that the women should be subservient to her husband? If so, what's the problem? My point stands.


My second response.



Sorry, that was too long of a read. Love you anyways.

I think they both should play a part and decide on one that they can agree on.

They should say a name at the same time, and whatever it sounds like should be the name. Names like Shamiller, Jock, Brail, etc.
