Nope. I always keep our possible names quiet until we decide for sure. Thankfully, no one has ever tried to take our names, but I would sure be mad if they did!

A name isn't yours to steal, but my SIL named her son Ramon knowing that was what we'd name a son if we ever had one (since it's DH's, their fathers and grandfathers name), just gave him a diff middle name.  When I got preg after that we said if it was a boy we'd give him the name anyway, then we lost our baby in Sept and gave it to him (Jr).
