Baby name woes!




I am glad we are not having a girl! We would have never agreed to a name...hubby hates cutesy names and I love them...after so many years of marriage you start realizing your difference in so many ways...I wish there was a thorough check list pre marriage...but when you are going out and engaged you do not know the other person's parenting style and o so many things...but I guess no two people are going to agree on everything 100%...and baby names is one of those things....




When I got pregnant with Ziad his name was decided on the same day I did the pregnancy test...hubby wanted to name the baby after his brother who passed away 23years ago...and his story was very touching to me that I had no problems with the name..it is a cute name...and ziad does love his name! during that pregnancy we could not agree on a girl name...if ziad was a girl he would still be without a name!




With Bilal I picked the name...hubby was not crazy about the name but got used to it..I used the you picked Zozo's name , it is my turn now....and it worked....and Bilal's name suits him and he does love his name too...all day long he spells it out...B-I-L-A-L BILAL...and his name is written all over books, notebooks, sheets of paper, a wall, a table...




Well now with baby boy #3....I want to name the baby Omar....I like the name...hubby likes it too..with one problem! Leave it to hubby to come up with this one! He will only agree to the name if the boys can say 30mar and not Omar! So the boys have three months to perfect the letter 3...sometimes they get it right but mostly it is an O sound....I tell him that by naming their brother Omar they will have get enough practice using the letter and perfect it...




So far he has not come up with an alternatives...MEN!

I think you will name the baby Omar, your husband will not be able to come up with a better name than this one..It is beautiful whether with an O or "3" sound..

Are Ziad and Bilal excited about having a baby brother ?
You take good care of yourself :)

Congrats!! Talaat boys!! Just like our fam!!

I like 3Omar!! Everyone at school will just say "Ohmar" later, so you'll get to have it both ways. :)

vagueraz said...

mabrook :)

what about Sanad or ossayed ,,I do like those names :)

bella said...

Oooh, a boy! Mabrook :)
I love the name 3omar, It's perfect and easy for non-Arabs to pronounce too, which is sth V IMP in my book!

Hope your kids learn to say it so your hubby won't drive you crazy :)

And PS I think you should pull the mommy card - YOU are the one being preggers for 9 months, YOU are the one who has to go thru labor, etc... so YOU should get first dibs and daddy only gets veto rights :P

Omar said...

I can attest that Omar is a very good name :)
They even have a hurricane named Omar now.

You know, one way to get your way is to suggest a list of the ugliest names you can imagine. You know, like 3ougla and... Okay, I can do this with American names but not Arab names. You know the equivalent of Cordelia and Gertrude for girls and Francis for boys... After some suggestions like that Omar will sound like heaven.
