We are keeping ours a secret. From most people I talk to, at least where I live, this is considered the norm and no one has ever asked me to divulge the names we are considering.

@ellebeerob:  I plan on keeping ours a secret. I don’t want to hear everyone’s opinion on it, or anything else! I view it as something private between me, Darling Husband & bebe πŸ™‚

My SIL kept the sex and name a secret – We have shared our name with everyone who has asked. Everyone DOES have an opinion but we love and are confident enough in the name we chose to not care what other people think about it. Both sets of parents gave us the stink eye at first though lol. it has grown on them πŸ™‚

Yep, we kept the name a secret. We didn’t originally plan to; but before we found out the gender and were brainstorming names for both genders, my mom saw our list when she was visiting; she had a reason why she hated almost every name on the list. After that day, Darling Husband & I decided it would be a secret.

We will definitely be keeping it a secret. I don’t want to hear how everyone hates the name we choose. Pretty much everyone I’ve known has done this though, so maybe it’s a regional thing.

Yes, we’re keeping it a secret. Actually, my parents know, but that’s all. People are very opinionated and I frankly couldn’t care less about their opinions, so we are choosing to wait to reveal until she’s born. Plus we feel since everyone already knows it’s a girl, we wanted to have one surprise to announce.

we’re keeping the name a secret too. i always tell people that i’m not being cutesy and trying to have a big reveal or anything, i just don’t want to hear your opinion.

we’re not really keeping our name a secret – we have a list that we’re working from but Darling Husband wants to wait until we lay eyes on the little man before giving him one of those names (I am not really in love with that idea, but it’s what he wants!) So we just keep telling people that we haven’t picked a name yet – that deters everyone!

As long as I can convince Darling Husband to keep it a secret, we will be doing that as well! I second guess my own decisions enough I don’t need everyone in my life doing it too..

My parents were told I was a boy until I was born, then they found out I was a girl, so my name was a surprise for everyone! πŸ˜€

We will def keep ours a secret. Especially after seeing all these threads about people who feel names are a free for all including your sisters/best friends etc!

Everyone in my family has always kept the baby’s name a secret till after it’s born. I was surprised (really surprised!) when friends started having babies and they started using the name before the baby was born. There’s nothing wrong with it; I gues it’s just . . . not part of my culture? lol. 

Plus, yeah, someone is ALWAYS going to hate whatever name you pick, and they’ll let you know it. Why give them the chance?

we are planning on choosing 2-3 names per sex and will name the baby after he/she is born. i know myself, and i’ll get a gut feeling as to what name is right for him/her once i see his/her face! that said, we’re definitely going to keep our “top 3” lists a secret as well.
