I am white and my husband is black. We've been married for two years now (i'm 23, he's 25) and I am 6 months pregnant with our first child.

We are having a baby boy.

My husband and I have been talking about baby names and we can't seem to agree on one. I'd like to go with a simple and classic name and he wants to go with a "black" name. His favorite baby names so far are "Darnell", "Monte" (pronounced mon-tay), and "LeBron" (yes, like the bball player LeBron James).

I had a conversation with his mother and she gave me a long lecture about why I should give my baby a "black" name. She said that my baby will most likely look black and will identify as a black man so he should have a black name. She said that it's very important to her family that I do so....

What should I do???

Do you have any names that would please my husband and his mother that are a little more exotic yet still on the traditional side and fairly common?

A "black name", come on now. The first time you lay eyes on your baby boy, somthing will come to mind unless you go traditional and make him a jr. Don't let your in law have so much say so and please let her know how you feel, they can be pushy. Go with what makes you and your husband happy. What ever ya'll decide don't let the in law call him anything different. Good luck!and CONGRATULATIONS!

Just pick something you both like. It is probably true he will look more black than anything, even if he is light skinned, but you can never tell. Rashida Jones is mixed, and got a very black name, but came out looking white. It's best to just find a name you both can agree on, and would want to call him. And Congratulations.

not that I even consider this a real thread as much as something posted by a trol sonsidering all the talk on IR's in this place. None the less, I will say this, there are numerous baby naming sites that have the most popular names broken down by ethinicity. You may want to start you search on the internet with this in mind. I think it will prove alot more productive then postin here, if this is indeed legitimate and not something merely posted for the point of baiting AA into fighting with Bi's.

First off, considering that this thread is more then likely baiting AA's to fight with Bi's, why would you feed the troll? Secondly, while I understand you frustration to a degree, the fact is, black men are not being stolen, they are leaving. Furthermore, why would you use the term "stolen"? Do you realize how insulting to black women that is? You're basically saying that black women are incapable of holding on to men.

Another thing you may want to keep in mind is, why would you want a black man, who if he is with a white woman, nine time out of ten, does not hold a favorable opinion of black women. Men who end up with white women tend to be harmful to the health of black women. If anything, we should thank them for taking them off our hands. We deserve to be loved like anyone else. Stop selling yourself short. Pining over some black dude who happened to choose a white chick over a black is doing just that.

Babes, when it comes to mothers, you just have to let them have some.

So basically it is 'win some'-'loose some', if the kid having a black name will get her off your back, let her have it, you could give the kid a compound name, which includes a black name, a white or non color based name so that peace can reign.

You can always trade in this favor for something else, sorry I am just being a business woman here who likes her peace of mind.

Tell you what most kids grow up not liking their names and eventually change it.

My granny on my fathers side insisted I be named after her, I tell you babes, her name was soooo not cool, but my mother who did not like it at that time decided to let peace reign and allowed me to be named after her.

LOL! When I became a teenager and embarked on the journey of self discovery, I changed the name so fast that no one knew it was mine in the first place LOLOLOLOL!

Let peace reign babes, you will win another battle another day.
