Naming baby after birth?
 
My DH is being such a pain! Now he says he won't know what to name our baby until after she is born so he can see what she looks like!

I am not in line with that plan, as I want to have a name for her already!

That is frustrating. Will he at least make a top five list??

We did that with DD she was 8 hours old before her full name was official. I can see how it's frustrating if you want to know ahead and order personalized things

We didn't know Jakob's name until after he was born, but it wasn't planned that way. Even if you have a set name you may see her and immediately find a different name that is perfect. I'd just ask him to choose a name he likes best but not have to be "set" on it until she is born.

We don't name our kids until after they are born either, which is a good thing, because none of them looked like what we thought our top names were. We see them and usually end up picking a 2nd or 3rd choice. So we make a list, then look at them, then decide. My youngest took about 3 days to name.

The way things are going we won't have a name until the baby is born. I'm oddly ok with it because it's stressing me out trying to think of a name.

We don't decide names until after birth either. We usually have a short list; so far we've hardly even talked about names. At this rate, we'll be coming up with our list at the hospital!

my aunt did the same with all three, she says the names just come to her when she sees her babies

I feel like the same thing is going to happen to us. I have NO clue what we're going to name this baby. It's sooooo hard to pick when we pretty much like nothing right now.
