I don't understand how anyone can

Name a child before they're born.

"The name conveys the nature and essence of the thing named."

How can anyone do that before meeting this new person?

It's morning. (At least here)
And this still doesn't seem like it should be anyone's tipping point.

I decided to name my children while pregnant, I wanted them to conform to whom I wanted them to be.

Why do you believe everyone loves by your unsourced quote?

They all looked like the same balls of smooth to me. The nature and essence was smooshy loud pooping thing.

Well, a large percentage of parents have their child growing inside of them. One could argue that would give a greater conveyance of the "nature and essence" of said child. One could also just not believe that names convey anything to begin with. Names mean different things to different people. In the end they're just special words created by humans and don't really mean anything.

It’s 4am here. I haven’t been to sleep yet. Yes, this post is quite stupid. Anytime someone starts with, “I don’t understand...” usually means they have an extremely narrow mindset and don’t actually care, want, or are even willing attempt to understand anything that anyone else does that they don’t do themselves. They say “I don’t understand” as usually a degrading start to whatever they feel they do that is much superior to others.
Then, to read that it’s for picking a name before the baby is born, yeah, that kinda did me in. Like wtf? How is it in anyway dangerous, hurtful, or emotionally damaging to a child to name them before they’re born?

I’ve done it both ways. My oldest 2 the names were picked out well before I went to the hospital. My last 2 weren’t named until right before I checked out of the hospital. I didn’t even have a short list. And I can tell you it’s the same either way. Just about any name feels “big” on a newborn. They grow into their name. I couldn’t picture any of the 4 of them with any other name; their names suit them perfectly.
