Did you announce your baby's name before birth?

    We wanted to, but I'm so bad with secrets that everyone knows now.

    We shared DS's name with everyone before he was born. Everyone loved his name except my brother. I don't put too much stock in what my brother thinks though because the name liked was way weird....I am worried for his future kids.

    We shared our picks for boy and girl. When we found out we were having a boy, his name was part of announcing. He already has a lot of personalized stuff. I have an uncommon name and never had anything personalized growing up so he's getting tons! Lol

    We haven't heard anything negative but LO is a Junior and DH was named after his dad but with his grandfather's name as a middle name (so DH is not a Junior). I think someone would have to be pretty ballsy and heartless to say anything negative about a strong, classic, family-honoring name. And they'd get a nasty earful from me because DH and I have been dreaming about Junior for years!

    Our pick for a girl was a soft, classic name (no family ties for the first name) and my mom's name for the middle name. No one said anything negative about our girl pick either. The name is classic but not super 10-girls-in-every-class common. Everyone loved that her middle name would be my mom's name.

    we didn't tell her name but we hadn't truly decided on it until a couple weeks before she was born. even then, i wanted to give us room to change it if she didn't look like the name we selected.

    We haven't told anyone (including parents), but we're going one step further: as with Jewish tradition, we actually won't tell anyone until the naming ceremony a week after birth. After not telling for this long, what's a few more days...right?!

    No, but only because we hadn't decided on anything until LO was 2 days old

    We have already shared our name choice if we have a girl, Kaia Lynn. We haven't decided on a boy name... which is funny because I am almost 100% positive we are having one. I just feel it in my gut.
