When my wife, Julia, became pregnant and we found out we were having a daughter, we were thrilled and began thinking about names. Julia wanted to follow a family tradition of naming children after grandparents. Her grandmothers were named Emma and Douse.

I opposed these names, preferring modern ones. We debated this extensively, and Julia finally agreed to a compromise. I suggested Elizabeth, and she seemed to agree.

In the last month of her pregnancy, Julia went into premature labor and was hospitalized. Thankfully, everything went well. When it was time to bring our daughter home, I was excited to meet Elizabeth. However, I was shocked to see the name Emma on her wristband.

This upset me because I believe I should also have a say in naming our daughter. Now, my wife and I are arguing again, and I still insist on changing the name.
