Did you go back and forth?
Were you set on a name early on?
Was your child not named until AFTER the birth?

My son's name was set before we got pregnant. We already have a name picked if should we have a girl next as well.

We knew the first one out would be Benaiah, if it was a boy, so he was named right away.

Poor little Ephraim was "the other one" for four whole days!

DDs: Gabrielle Jayda-Leigh (Gaby) & Emersyn Lily-May

Did you go back and forth?
Gabrielle - no, it was pertty much set in stone once we decided on it
Emersyn - yes, a lot.. she was going to be Albany, but then her father & I broke up, and I decided to change her name - I went back & forward between Emersyn, Camdyn & Isabella

Were you set on a name early on?

Gabrielle - was decided before I was 12 weeks
Emersyn - was decided on when I was around 15 weeks, though I changed her middle names (from Georgia-May to Lily-May) at around 34 weeks

I went back and forth and 2nd guessed a TON. I'm like that with everything though.

Jordana was picked at 20 weeks. We went back and forth some but were about 70% sure from there forward that that would be her name.

Jacoby was picked at about 20 weeks as well, right after the u/s, but I 2nd guessed it til he was 3 months old. His birth certificate wasn't finalized til then.

I decided on Isabella right after I found out it was a girl. For this one I at least hope we have a name before she's born.

Nope. Once we're set on a name, it's pretty set. Dh hates going back and forth.

Were you set on a name early on?
DD - had her name picked out before conception
DS1 - had his name picked out right before 20 week u/s
DS2 & DS3 - had their names picked out at the beginning of 3rd trimester
(But, today I started considering Theo Jack Henry & XXXXX Thomas. )

Was your child not named until AFTER the birth?
I would be going CRAZY if ever in this situation. I was nervous with this pregnancy - not having names until 3rd trimester and having to come up with 2 boy name (as boy names are so hard for us).

We settled on it pretty soon after we found out we were having a girl and since it was the only girls name we both loved at the time so we didn't go back on it too much.
