Hello. Everyone has an opinion on baby names, and sometimes they’re not afraid to share them (we clearly remember our mum poo pooing all of our name suggestions!), so we were wondering, are you keeping your baby name a secret from friends and family?
Please do come and tell us if you’re keeping your baby name under a hat, by posting a reply to this thread. And if you feel like shouting your chosen baby name from the rooftops by revealing it here, please do feel free! We won't judge!

Yes - we don't want to name our baby before we meet him/her so we will have a shortlist and then choose when baby is here. We're not finding out the gender either.
We also won't be sharing what names are on our list - everyone has an opinion one way or another on names so we don't want anyones opinions to spoil any names we love! My parents seem to think they have a say in what names we choose so we're just staying quiet :-)

I use to have two names (one boy, one girl) I’ve LOVED since the beginning of time.
I did share those, and everyone knew how much I LOVED those names however my sister in law ended up picking the boy name for her son. My cousin picked the girl name for her daughter.
I haven’t picked a name for baby yet, but have a shortlist, which I will be keeping secret until baby arrives.

We have picked names but I don’t want to share (no particular reason) but I think it’s nice it’s just between me and my Husband.

We canvassed opinions on names from the beginning and then made a final decision....we have told close friends and family, most have been enthusiastic, some have pulled a few funny faces, including my other Half's mother, but she outright vetoed others so I don't think she'd have been complete happy with any choice.
Someone asked me on Facebook at the weekend if we had decided on a name and I said that we had....she then asked why I wouldn't share it!
We have a week to go, I think the world at large can wait a week and close friend and our families already know.

I always keep the names secret even though we havent always got set ones before the birth.
