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'll see if this works LOL

You can share it with us though...Right?? My brother and his wife didn't tell anyone the name and while the suspense nearly killed me, it was a great surprise. I'm glad you found a name!

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.

I think it's a cute idea to keep some suspense in the air.

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?"

Good luck!

There's no way I could keep it a secret. I told my mom our name choices before I was even pregnant.

We plan on keeping it a secret but not on here though, just with family/friends.

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!!!

10 weeks and 6 days to go LOL
