  • My son's name is Evan. His dad liked it. We had made a deal that if we had a girl, I'd name her and if we had a boy, he'd name him. I have a girls name all picked out. Anyway, when we found out we were having a boy, I tried to convince him that we should name him Christopher. You see how well I fared. LOL.

  • We picked out most of our names before we had kids (like within the first month). We did end up switching order of the names because it "felt right"
    Middle names are all family names. First name is whatever we both liked.

  • We picked out names when we knew I was pregnant then narrowed it down when we knew what it was going to be.

  • It took us a really long time to finally decide on a baby girl daughters dad didnt like anything I had picked out! went to the hospital with two choices, we decided the second day in the hospital after she was born to finally pick one!!!!

  • I had a boy's name picked out long before I got pregnant. A girl's name, I was still debating on. Now I have a girl's name (not pregnant though) picked out, but no boy's name.

  • My friend is expecting a baby girl any day now and she still doesn't have a name. I told her they're going to be bringing home "Baby Girl L."

  • With my first it was as soon as we got pregnant. Funny thing is we picked a boy's name first and then a girls name awhile later and we had a boy. Oddly enough the girl's name just never seemed as important. lol

    Then we lost 2 consecutive pregnancies so with the 4th pregnancy we didn't choose names until after I hit 14 weeks. Although I called the baby Dilbert from 6 weeks on after seeing him in an ultrasound because I cannot STAND referring to babies as "it" and because it was just a super silly name that had people thinking I had lost my mind. LOL

    We always just got on and perused the site until there was a name that jumped out to us. :)

    Our boys are Kaden Alexander and Karston Avery btw.
