We discussed it like, a month in, maybe a bit less since we talked about everything right up front.

We are the opposite; we never discussed names at all till we were married and I was about 26 weeks pregnant. 🙂

We talked about it after about a year but we were very young. I knew he was the one by then.

Less than a month, we were doing a “ask each other random things” and it led into that.

We have only just started talking about baby names etc. But that is because we have decided we will be TTC after the wedding

We talked about it maybe 6 months in. We both pretty much agreed instantly. It’s crazy how much we mesh.

About 3 months into our relationship. He told me that he wanted to marry me and we started planning EVERYTHING but the wedding. : ) We didn’t get engaged until 2 years later, and you bet I was ready to plan that wedding!

We met when we were 14/15 so it was a little while after we met, but we started dating at 17/18 and had our names picked out a few months later. Still the same names we want now, just can’t wait until they’re here!

@stillme:  We’re in the same boat.  I’m 30 weeks pregnant, and we just started discussing it when I got through the first trimester.  We’ve yet to agree on any girl names…

So, 7 years?

We didn’t discuss names until after we were engaged. So, we had been together for about 4 years. We started discussing having kids someday after about 2 or so years together.

His sister got pregnant and we hated the name she chose for our niece, and we talked about the names we hated – and we had been together about 3 1/2 years at that time.

When we started discussing seriously, we agreed on two names, male and female, within about a month. We haven’t changed our minds and we’re looking forward to it.

We talked about it verrrry casually (as in, “What do you like in a name?”) probably 1-2 years in. I’m sort of obsessed with baby names, though, so after we got engaged, I started bringing it up all the time. We now have a girl’s name picked out, eek! (Eliot Evangeline, hope I still like it in a few years when we start TTC!)

It tooks us yearsss, because we were 17 when we started dating, and I was sure that I didn’t want children. Fast forward to last year (6 years later!), when I did a complete 180, and we’ve been talking babies ever since. We’ve already agreed on a handful of names, although it was a struggle 😉
