If we have another girl, I have said since just after our first was born, I want to name her Myla. DH was totally on board with this 2 1/2 years ago...but now he is not. I guess we have ~ 29 weeks (and one day) to pick a name, and who knows, we might not even have another girl.
ok, vent over.

I can sympathize. My DH will get stuck on a name and entertain nothing else for years. And then I'll finally come around to it. Then we agree to not talk names (together- I think about names non-stop) until we're pregnant. And then because a few years lapse, he's changed his mind. This happened a few times with IF and then just 2 years between our son and now.
And he thinks I'm the one who keeps changing the list!
Manderlin923:What kind of names does he like? What about similar sounding names like Mila (me-lah), Isla (eye-lah), or Mia?
This - I was thinking Mila or Mya/Myah?
If we have a girl, she'll be Mayna (could also be spelled Meina/Meyna/Meynah/Maynah)
Has good meanings in German, Dutch, Sanskrit, Arabic and Greek.
Seems to also align to the kind of name your looking for....
He likes all sorts of names, which is good. Mostly very common/traditional names, then he will throw a more unique name out there. He chose our daughter's name, Shayla. I like names very similar to Shayla, more modern names. I think this time around we are just going to wait until we know the sex to really start talking names.
You can't blame him for changing his mind. DH and I had a girl name and shortly after our son was born when we were talking about #2 that I wasn't sold on our girl name anymore. It happens, tastes change. Revisit it maybe after you find out the sex. Maybe he thinks there is a better name out there. Both take some time looking for other names, if BOTH of you agree to Myla still then great. If at any point in time he outwardly says no, the you will have to move on.
