Can you ask someone else to make the list for you? Then it doesn’t look as odd if they don’t know the names of gift givers.

Have someone else do it? Normally the mother to be doesn’t write down who all the gifts are from. I would politely ask a close co worker to do it for you.

Won’t they come with a card or a little note saying “From So and So?  Are they going to be handing you the gifts themselves?  Maybe have a friend hand you the gifts from the pile, and then if there isn’t a card, say “Who’s this from!?” 

I also like to use “How do you spell your name” however if their name is Dave, you’ll just look like an idiot 😉

Ryansgirl:  haha…or if they respond “Dave”, then you go…”no, your last name!” (and pray it isn’t Smith!)

I second getting someone else to keep the list for you.  This is a very normal thing.

GonnaBeMrsB:  Another vote for someone else writing everything down.

That’s what happened at my showers. And I didn’t know everyones name either… lol
