  • First one was pretty easy.....up to a couple months before we had her. The twin boys were up until the very end and the last, we literally decided in the delivery room lol

  • It took months for our son (our first), and about a week for our daughter (our second). We started thinking about names for both sexes before we knew if our first was going to be a boy or girl, so we already had a short list to work with for our second.

  • Right after we had the positive pregnancy test we had one picked out for each gender

  • It was always pretty easy for and fast for all my children. Even when we unexpectedly had a boy instead of a girl it only took about a day.

  • My oldest is the 4th so his name was pretty musch understood from the beginning, (against my will lol) and the baby was Aiden until about a month before he was born and then we changed it, just decided it didn't fit.

  • I only have one, and it took pretty much the whole pregnancy lol

  • I had my daughter's name (Scarlett Abigail) picked out since I was in high school, I saw/heard they on TV shows and instantly fell in love with them!

    We aren't TTC or pregnant with our second one, but we already have his or her names picked out. They're family names of or deceased relatives. Olivia Eindy for a girl and Oliver Liam for a boy.

  • About 2 weeks for our first child. We are TTC now and I have been picking out (and throwing away) names for almost a year. We just can't agree on anything this time around LOL.

  • With our son (our first) it took a lOOONNNNGGG time...seemed like every name I picked he hated and every name he picked I but probably 2 months before he came we settled on Damien (his choice) Isaac (my choice, after my grandpa). With this one I have a feeling it will be much of the same! GL mama
