When did you decide on a name for your DC?

Forgive me if this has been asked before, but I don't come down here to the pg/ttc forum much--too busy lurking in the diaper chatter . Anyway, after posting in the thread asking if people had found out the gender of their baby, I realized that many of you ladies already had names picked out. I was talking to a friend the other day who already has names chosen for her next three kids, whereas I am 34 weeks along and we aren't any closer to naming this baby than we were when I got the two pink lines . We usually don't decide until around 36 or 37 weeks. So how about you?

Late. My last one was only a few weeks before she was born. I'm due in 8 days now and we don't have a name picked. Just a list of them that we fight over lol.

We had a girl's name picked out mid-pregnancy. DS was 2 wks early (I expected him to be late based on family history). We decided on a name when he was 2 days old. We named him after birth but it wasn't by design.

We had an easy time with DD1 and she was named as soon as we knew it was a girl. DD2 was a lot harder and she didn't have a name until a week before she was born. DD3 we had a name picked out when I was about 7 months along.

Re: When did you decide on a name for your DC?

It was different with all my kids. My oldest was named before we were even married Dh wanted his first born son to carry on his name (dh is a jr.; ds is the III) We picked out names early for both genders with #2. #3 I just knew was a girl so she got the name #2 would have gotten had he been a girl. #4 we had a boy's name early but she was a girl and we argued about her name right down until 2 weeks before she was born. And even then, dh came up to the hospital the next day and had to verify with me what her name was because we had gone around so many times he forgot what we had decided on.

Re: When did you decide on a name for your DC?

There is no "All of the above option!" That's us!

1st baby dh wanted his name carried on, so we knew that even before there WAS a baby.

2nd baby was named after he was born.

3rd-8th babies we decided on their names before they were born.(We picked out a boy's and a girl's name)

9th baby-she was special in that we knew her gender, and knew of her many birth defects. We wanted a name that meant something-so we decided on Priscilla Hope, which means "Ancient Hope", when we were 23 weeks pg. We were so blessed by her and through the pg, and knew that God had given her to us for great things to happen. It was awesome to ask for prayer for her by calling her name, too.

10th-we had picked out a name, but one day, we decided to change it. He just so "fits" into his name. It's awesome!

We had a name picked out before DD was even conceived, but then we changed our mind by about 32 weeks!

With both my kids we didn't decide on a name until they were born. Actually let me rephrase that. With both of them I had decided on a name by about 36 weeks, and DH kept being stubborn about it until they were born
