    Thought this would be a fun poll.

    i had no idea what we'd be calling our daughter, cos i wanted to know what she looks like before i decide on a name that she'd be using for the rest of her life (hopefully!). both hubby & i agree that we needed to know what name suit her.

    My husband and I decided not to tell anyone the name of our daugther in advance. We already told everyone the gender so we wanted to keep her name to ourselves. I remember that everybody got reaaallllyyyy curious! Friends and family went out of their way in order to get a clue...

    Hubby and I stayed very tough through the end, though. Was lots of fun!
    Like this, you still have a bit of a surprise factor.

    We told anyone who asked, although it sounds like nursie's way is more fun. The unexpected dividend to that was some nice, personalized baby gifts.

    It took us ages to come up with a name and we only made a decision a week before he was born. My parents were they only ones who knew, as they helped us create a list of possible names.

    We decided the name a few years before conception - and booked the domain name! So, yes, we told anyone who was interested.

    We didn't tell anyone although I did tell my best friend about three months before - she was about to have her baby and we dediced to swap names. We did tell people the sex.

    Talking

    I was given good advice to NOT reveal the babies names before birth as some people are insensitive and will comment on your choice of name e.g. "how old fashioned", "like a pop star?", "ugh, I had a horrid aunt with the same name" blah blah .. whereas people seem to have more tact when youtell them AFTER the baby is born .

    If you don't believe me, try mentioning some names to people saying we'[re thnking of calling her/him xxxxxxxxx, someone will comment about it. (Not us understanding pregnant ladies of course!)
