Our current plan for when we get PG is to find out the baby’s sex, but not tell anyone (I don’t need a bunch of pink frilly clothes if we have a girl). So that automatically takes us out of the running to share a name, because that would probably give it away.

I think we’ll probably tell people. I’m a total nerd and I get really excited about thing and keep them secret. If people try to criticize it, oh well. Not their kid.

I think that whenever we find out that I’m pregnant, we’ll find out the sex and pick out a name, but I really want to keep both a secret. I want to know, but I would rather decorate and have neutral clothing so that I can reuse a lot of it with our next babies. I want to keep everyhing fairly gender neutral so it lasts longer and I can use everything with all our kids.

I agree with some of the pp. My husband and I are keeping our choices to ourselves until after we name the baby. I’ve had too many friends who weren’t able to name their child what they had wanted to thanks to people not knowing when to keep their mouths shut. I figure it’s much harder to criticize a name when the name is attached to a cute little baby.

We’ve started telling people. Once we landed on a name we liked the feeling of calling him by that name and didn’t want to try to hide it.

@elliestan: I know someone answered, but it’s rude to not answer since you asked me.LOL Not finding out til birth. 🙂

Not going to lie, I totally hate it when people do this. It’s your kid and all so do what you want to do but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. 🙂
There’s no way I’d be able to keep it a secret from everyone. I don’t think I’d go as far as making it “facebook official” but I’d definitely tell our nearest and dearest.

When I eventually get pregnant, we will be team green, so we won’t know for sure what the name will be, and we are also the types of people that will likely be deciding between 2 or 3 names for either gender until after the baby is born. We might share the options we are throwing around though.

we waited until our baby shower to announce it

In the very distant future, I think we’ll keep it to family and close friends. No posting all over facebook or anything. If you need to know my baby’s name, then you should probably be someone I regularly see and/or talk to. Lol.

I was pregnant at the same time as my sister in law.. We told everyone and she chose not to. Ironically no one said anything bad about our daughter’s name (Libby-Jane) but once she was born that same sister in law asked my inlaws “did they decide to keep the same name? I’m not really a fan of it” This from the girl that didn’t tell anyone her son’s name because she didn’t want criticism… Her son was born this week and we’re not fond of his name (Anderson James) but of course we’ll never say that to anyone besides each other…
