We decided on two girl names and one boy name already.  And we’re 22, are getting married in March, and right now don’t want to even try to have kids until about 2 or so years after the wedding.  So no, I don’t think it’s weird at all. Smile

I don’t think it’s weird, I think it’s normal. Fiance & I do that…we’ve already decided on first names for both a boy & a girl.

We decided on a name for a boy and for a girl about 6 months before getting engaged…. so no, I don’t think it’s weird!

Not any more weird than discussing how you want to decorate your house you can’t buy for another couple of years. Fiance and I discussed a couple of names we liked when we first started dating, and neither of us even wants kids!

ummm NO WAY! We talked about that probably 6 months into dating-we’ve been dating 3 years, getting married in June. HAHA! and we don’t plan on having children until 2 years after we’ve been married. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve always had my names I liked for a boy and girl, and he’s named after his father, and we will have the third if we have a boy, and then I like another family name in his family so that’s another option…not weird at all!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Haha! I’m in the same situation! We’re not getting married until 2012, but have talked about baby names already. We have a boy and a girl’s name picked out.

My Fiance and I talk about names too.  We have a few picked out.  I think both of us have baby fever.  I cant wait!

We do that all the time, so I don’t think it’s strange at all! I know friends who talk about it too with their SO. We have several girls names we like but can’t agree on a single boys name…FH is really picky about boys names.

we didnt really talk about names, i had a girl name picked out for a long time, he always wanted to name his son after him. we decided that whatever we have we will already know the name. and we can always talk about other names if we have a 2nd boy or 2nd girl when we get pregnant for the 2nd time. before we were even engaged.

just a tip though, a lot of not-pregnant-yet moms-to-be arent sharing their baby name choices with others for fear of people stealing the name.

@thefiancemeenah:I know!  I’m so afraid of sharing mine *but I do anyway because I love them*  but I dont want them to become super common.

My name is so common I hated it I always had several other girls with the same name in my class.  I dont want my children to have the same thing

I don’t think it’s weird. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I do… well I do, he just shoots them down!  There’s like 2 boy’s names we agree on.  Girl names are a different story! I just think it’s something fun to do, especially if you’re headed that direction someday!

I don’t think it’s weird at all! We aren’t getting married for 5 more months but we’ve had our kids names picked out for a looooooong time.

We both grew up every summer vacationing in Wells, ME at our beach houses (we were less than a mile away from each other each summer our whole lives and never knew!), and we got engaged on Drake’s Island Beach in Wells as well. So, we’ve decided our boy/girl names will be

Landon Wells

&

Addison Drake
