I can't imagine they can keep the kid LOL. I expect the moment you see your little one you will find the perfect name though :) We have a couple names we like, two favs. But I always no that it can change once I see baby!!

I bet you will know once you see the little one. And if not I have heard of people taking a week or more to decide. Take your time, your child deserves the best name you can come up with :)

I'm not sure. We always decide on a name soon after finding out baby's gender.

My friends didn't have a name picked out before going in. It took them a couple of days to decide and they were really glad that they did! They wanted to get to know their kiddo first!

Yes you can take them home without a name. You would just have to work out arrangements for the birth certificate.

I *think* that here you have to have a name because all the paperwork has to be filled out before you leave
