Just wondering if anyone had picked out a name for their child, and then not told anyone (family & friends) about the name until the child was born. What do you think of this idea?
I actually think DH and I have picked out a name for our June baby But we're going to try to keep it a secret for the next 12 1/2 weeks from friends and family! This is going to be hard! I wanted there to be a bit of a surprise when the baby was born, because we already found out the sex of the baby and everyone knows.
We did that! It was actually our version of a compromise. DH didn't want to even find out the sex, but I'm a total shopper and didn't want to end up with green/yellow everything. So we compromised and found out the sex, but didn't tell anyone the name. I think he was just really into the whole idea of going out into the waiting room and saying 'It's a GIRL!', but at least this way he got to announce the name with the same flourish. lol We plan on doing it again with the next one.
This is what DH & I plan on doing when the time comes. We have names picked out but we won't be naming our baby till we meet him/her, even though we plan on finding out the sex. We want to be certain the name fits our lil one.
Whenever I mention my favorites to my mother she just rolls her eyes, so I'd probably have to keep it a secret too. I'm not putting up with nine months of "but that sounds so old!" and "why can't you just use Madison instead?"

We kept in a secret from friends and family. I told on here and at work. I just couldn't keep it completely to myself. But we annonced it to everyone else on the day she was born.
I was glad we did b/c we knew she was a girl and I ended up with a scheduled c section (she was breech) so there would have been no secrets!
Our family thinks that we still don't have a name.... they don't even know that we really have a name but are keeping it from them LOL Every time they ask if we've thought of anything I said "We still have no idea!! I don't know what we're going to do!" Because if I told them that we had a name but wasn't going to tell them, they'd push and push, beg and beg, and drive me crazy!!!
