Choosing a name shouldn't be this hard! It is seriously the only thing that I think about. I have read every name ever invented, and have a list of 3 boy names, and 5 girl names. DH keeps shooting me down with every suggestion, until I said my top girl name. He said, "I don't know, let me think about it"

So I'm all excited that he didn't say no, and just for fun, I typed it into google, and it's a freaking celebrities kid's name!! First and middle names!! The middle name I'm not totally set on, but I really like the flow.

Should I just not mention it to my husband? lol Would it be really lame to have the same name as a celebrity kid?

Don't mention it to him would be my advice.

No matter how much you research chances are there will be another child with the same name. If you really like it (and dh does too!) go for it.

It was so hard to pick a girl's name with my first pregnancy that my husband and I both liked. Olivia was actually the only name we both agreed on. lol

I am in the same boat as you and DF keeps coming up with these off the wall names! I am so upset.

It's not stupid to have the same name... could you give any insight on what the name is? lol

I don't want to say the name until I am 100% sure that is the name we are using. I am still absolutely in love with it though, and it almost makes me want this baby to be a girl just so I can use it!

The celebrity isn't hugely popular, but I think lots of people know who she is. (The father was more in the public's eye, but he has passed away) Are those enough hints?? lol

Yes, it was Heath Ledger. And you know what, I don't care! We have offically decided on names, we even shook on it. lol

Boy- Nolan David
Girl - Matilda Rose

I am extremely happy with both names, and I don't care who else has them!

it shouldn't matter - cause you know what even if you don't realize you will learn when the child is born and by then it's defintely too late.

For example: Our sons name is Bentley - after Dierks Bentley...however, once Bentley was born we got "Oh like the car" ***: I didn't even know there was a car - I know, I am in the wrong tax bracket.

So I say If you like the name use it - regardless of what anyone else says...I never told anyone our names until the baby was born - so no one could make "ugghh really" faces at us...once our baby was born - they can complain about the name on the way home in their own cars lol

I have only told my parents the names, and they really like them. I won't be telling anyone else until the baby is born, which is why I posted them here! I had to tell someone!!!!! I am so happy to have a name. It makes it just that much more real.

I love both of your names! Totally worth fighting over and who cares what anyone else thinks? There is always someone else with that name that pops up Your girls name is so close to the one we chose: Maura Rose (family names). And I'm using it no matter who else does!

Ah ha! I knew it was Matilda Rose! I totally say go for it. Actually when my husband and I were watching something on tv (think around Oscar time) and they were talking about Heath winning they mentioned his daughter. My husband really liked the name...he's an Aussie too so it sort of reminds him of home I guess...Waltzing Matilda and all that. I think it's pretty...and NOT common...yet also not weird! Seems people I know and meet keep coming up with the same names or they just simply make names up.

Glad you're settled on names now. It is so hard..I think boys are harder than girls. We're Catholic so this time around I am going for saints names if it's a girl...for a boy probably not just cause there aren't too many I like.

I like those names. I think as long as it isn't the same as some wacky stars kid like Pilot Ispektor you're good! If you picked a name like that we may have to reach through the screen and smack you around a little! LOL
