Whats the  name? Have you looked it up in the SSN lists? If its out of the top 100ish then its not too popular. Are you maybe just anxious as your about to have a CHILD in 2 months haha? It might be just like kinda like cold feet?

Do you have good photos without the name?

Can you use Jacobi as a middle name, maybe?

What made you love the name in the first place? Do you think it might just be hormones and the uncertainty of his upcoming birth that’s making you doubt the name? Do you have any second choice names or was that name really the one?  I wouldn’t stress out about it too much, once you have him in your arms, you can look at him and see if it still fits. If not, maybe there’s another name that’s just “him”. You don’t have to name him right that second either, if you want to take a little while and get to know his personality before you settle on a name that fits him.

Maybe wait until you see the baby? Seriously, my brother went without a name up until my mother was supposed to leave the hospital.

@miss-spunkin:  We have Jacoby Ellsbury on the Red Sox, so although it’s uncommon, it’s certainly a name that Sox fans would know! 🙂  I like it, and if you orifinally decided on it, it must be something that you loved.   Good luck!

I’m sure if you decide that you no longer want to use the name, it can be photoshopped out of your maternity pictures.

What is it specifically about the name you’re doubting? Is it just that it is uncommon, or are you concerned people will mispronounce it?

We have a friend named Jacoby! Of course it’s spelled different, but still a great name!

ETA: It’s pronounced like yours =)

It’s not too uncommon at all. It’s not a “popular” name but there are a number of sports players who are named Jacobi so it’s unique but recognizable. I think you guys picked a great name.
