  • Rule number 1 in baby names....Do not, I repeat, DO NOT share them with your family. You really don't need to please 15 people with YOUR baby name, you need to please yourself and the baby's father. No matter what name you come up with, someone in your family will have gone to highschool with a bitch that had your favorite baby name. You can not please everyone, keep the name a secret...sure, its fun to talk about on CM, mostly because you can bounce around ideas and get opinions that don't really matter, kwim? Pick a name that YOU love, when everyone in your family has babies of their own, THEY can pick names that THEY love. Seriously. Sophie is very pretty, if you love it that is all that matters.

  • I agree with gram just don't tell them what you are going to name your kiddo. I made that mistake too and most of my family said our choices were icky. We both love classical music and were thinking of using names of our favorite composers but the family had a fit. Now we wish we would have not said anything till it was too late.

  • I am only 12 weeks and have both a girl and a boy name picked out. My DH doesn't care what i pick so i am lucky there. I really like the name Sophie Jade, would your husband compromise with Sophia Jade? I like Dominic or Donovan for boys names. Donovan Blake
