Is this weird? I was pregnant but it was non viable.

It would have been an awful time to have a baby at that point, and it was almost a blessing it didnt happen.  But there are times I wish it had and think of, "if had had her, she'd be this age..."

I also have always thought of the fetus as a girl, and I had a name picked out, "Lily".

Is that normal?  Am I being weird?

No. My sister had a miscarriage. She said she knows it was a boy. She didn't name him though.

Lily Grace is a beautiful name.

My 5 yr old's name is Lily :)

No, you're not being weird. I miscarried one pregnancy. I wasn't far enough along to tell, but I know he was a boy. And I think about how old he'd be now, too.

Not weirdnat all.  You were pregnantnwith a child whom younwould have named.  There is nothing wrong with rememberingnher by that name.

I had  many miscarriages before I had  my son.  No  it was my  way of grieving as well...  I named all of them as well.  Mine were also nonviable or  another wierd for really deformed   my mom had Ectopic and   my mom had a few late term miscarriages and lost my baby brother.  Baby was not formed right to surrive outside the womb.    I named mine was well one was a boy he was named Aries ryan and the other was  Angela Athena and there was Autumn Rose.. How you  grieve sometimes.

I don't think it's weird. I would probably have been the same way.

I've nver had a loss, but my mom had six, in her first trimester for all. She thinks because my dad was the seventh son in his family, that all six were boys (her first viable pregnancy was my brother, the 7th son of the 7th son) so she refers to them as boys always. No names that I know of though.
