Our children were named before they were born.

DD1- My mom found her name in the obituaries. She pronounced it in the way we say DD's name. I instantly fell in love, so I changed the spelling (so people wouldn't think it was that other name).. It was exactly the right name for DD. Her name is such that it probably should have been spelled with an E at the end, but I chose not to, and the slightly less feminine look really suits her better than that extra E would have..

DD2 - Her name came to me in a dream right before I found out I was pregnant. My mom told it to me in my dream, and I made sure to remember it for when I woke up. (FTR - My mom wasn't impressed when I told her the name. :P) The idea that I was pregnant hadn't even crossed my mind (we were trying, but it was a long shot!!!) so when I got the positive pregnancy test a week or so later, I knew it would be a girl, and I knew what her name would be.

 my best friend and I in high school, junior year, decided upon a particular first & middle name if we ever get married when we got 'old'. little did I know, almost ten years later I'd be married and pregnant. my dh and I chose a possible boys name and we dicided to use the girls name if it worked that way. lo and behold, we had a girl and her name is the one chosen 9 years before her birth.

Well, we both picked out his name while I was pregnant. However, we weren't married so I technically could have named him just about anything I wanted to.

I came up with my son's first name and I decided to put my bf's middle name to our son. So both have the same middle name. We are TTC in Jan and it's another boy I would chose the first name and put my bf's first name as the baby's middle name.
