Nobody "in real life" will find out until baby is here!

We tried..but couldn't last that long.. I haven't told you guys on here..but most everyone knows and if we are facebook friends you have probably already seen the name on there too! It was so hard for us to keep it in because we use his name so freely around the house! I thought it would have been fun to try and hold out but we lasted about 20 weeks!

Lol I'm such a paranoid freak I call her BB because some of my friends know I'm on JM and I wouldn't want them to sneak and see it.

We have a short list of names that we are keeping a secret from friends and family. We haven't picked her name yet, so I guess its a secret for everyone!!

We have told, but since we are still not 100% decided on the middle name we haven't shared that piece yet. Still debating between Ellen and Ellen Ann for the middle name. Her first name will be Peyton. MIL's middle name is Ellen and my mom's middle name is Ann. We just can't decide if we want to name her after one grandma or both.

I was going to do the whole secret thing, mostly because I didn't want to hear the backlash potentially of picking an older, sort of unusual version of "Vivian". The problem with that is, if you're going to make something a secret you really can't tell anyone. We ended up having some who knew, some who didn't, some who just knew initials, some who were monogramming things for the shower, it was outrageous. Eventually we just said screw it and my way of announcing it without making a big deal was to post the pictures of my "pumpkin belly art" on FB that had her name on it. It wasn't a huge deal but the name is now out in the open and if people don't like it, they haven't said anything and I don't care!

We haven't intentionally kept it a secret, but we still don't know what we're naming him and I'm tired of people asking (they ask all the time and its getting on my nerves LOL) and us saying "we're thinking this ....." and then we end up deciding we don't like it so then the next time they ask its something different. I've decided to just tell ppl we have no idea (even though we're pretty sure on what we're going to call him, just can't decide if it'll be his middle or first name) so that we don't have to tell them something different if we end up changing our minds again.

We haven't even told the kids because they like to announce things they shouldn't Lol. Its driving everyone crazy but dh really wants something about her that is just ours. And I'm looking forward to introducing her on her birthday. But I think no matter what everyone is going to call her BB. It will probably always be her nickname.

We haven't picked a name yet, but when we do, it will 100% be secret from everyone. Even names on our long and short list aren't being revealed!

Everybody knows my top girls name, but our shortlist of names is a secret from the real world.

We don't tell names til after the baby is born. Correction, I am so indecisive that we don't pick a name til after baby is born But, for the most part we don't even share potential names. I did post a few possible names in the secrets forum because I wanted feedback, but I am still back at square one. Havent decided on anything, not even sure the right name is on my list yet.
I really, really want to name this baby before she arrives. If by some miracle I am able to commit to a name, I won't be sharing it with friends/family til after she is born.

We don't usually tell anyone even our short list until the birth certificate is signed! We won't choose until after she's born, but we have one name that we really like. Still, I know that it won't meet with overwhelming approval, so again, we keep our mouths shut. Maybe everyone finally gets it with us, and they won't ask. Riiiiiiight. I don't mind sharing with you guys, especially since you're all being reminded right now how hard it is to name a kid, why you choose the names you do, and how much thought has to go into every bit of it. WHEW! But everyone else? Nooooo.

DH ON THE OTHER HAND...OMG! He told our older son the name we like best. Luckily, we don't know anyone here, but we're seeing the in-laws at Thanksgiving, and they're VERY vocal about names. They pitch out names, thinking that we'll pick any of them. Nope.

My stomach hurts just thinking about it. Or maybe that's her foot shoved in there...

We are keeping it a secret! We actually dont know it either, we have it down to two names we love. The names are different enough that we want to see him before we decide.

No one knows the names (except my aunt, who has cancer, and may not make it to see baby... but she is a vault, and is actually delighted in keeping the secret from everyone) and it is KILLING my mother. She feels entitled to know the names, but we want to keep something to ourselves.
