I'm not sure if we'll be sharing our names (when we choose them) or not.

With DD#1 everyone knew what her name would be as soon as we found out she was a girl. This time we're keeping the name a secret until delivery.

We chose to not share the name. And in both cases the name that we had chosen by the time of the shower changed to something else the closer we got to the birth. In the case of my first child we did not choose the name until that night. He was born a week early on Christmas and we let that day influence the name choice of Christian.

With my first daughter we had her name written right on the baby shower cake lol.
I will probably do the same with this one. No harm in everyone knowing really.

Once I pick out the name I start calling the baby by his/her name so by the shower everyone knows anyway, but I also put the name on the cake.

DF and I don't think that we could keep the name a secret, so I'm sure everyone will know!

We shared our first few name ideas and got way too many opinions on them so from now on our ideas and the final choices are going to be our little secret. I never knew people had so many opinions on what babies should be named!!!

No one knows the name of our baby (even us!) so it will be a secret.

Everyone should know her name by now, those who do not will as soon as they get the invite.

We arent telling anyone until she comes. Mostly becuase even though we're pretty set on a name Im afraid it will change and people may buy something thats personalized

We are not finding out the sex of the baby til its born so we will not be sharing names til its born as it will only have one then. I might play a game because I am not sold on a girls name yet, and have people give me ideas on names on a board.
