Waiting til birth to name baby? MunchkinWrangler 4 kids; Rīga, Latvia 46865 posts

So we are not finding out the sex of the baby this time around. Im 24 weeks now and at this point we chose a boy and girl name. I love the girl name to pieces... But now I am starting to second guess the boy name. Regardless if how common it is we decided on Cameron because we cant agree on anything else. For this reason I am kind of hoping it will be a girl. Haha.



If it is a boy... Do you think a name will just come to us when he is here... Or should we make a list to bring? Lol. This is so silly. We had names we adored for our other kids... This time its hard. We have used to ones we liked best already for boys!



If anyone has boy name suggestions... Shoot them my way. Nothing that starts with an R though.

We're not finding out either but we have a name for each set in stone.
I would make a list of possible names to bring with you so you're not scrambling or realizing you have NO names lol

We had it narrowed down for each but we had no names set in stone. Our first baby, we didn't know the sex (though at our final u/s the stupid douche-y tech pretty much ruined it) and for our 2nd we did know.



We wrote down our favorite names and I carried the list with me everywhere... :lol: I don't know what I thought might happen to it. lol

I would bring a list of your favourite names and then choose whichever suits him when he's born

I hadn't decided on my son's name until I saw him. I'm a bit weird and like to see if the name goes with the baby which is why I couldn't pick definitevlly until he was born.



I made a list of names I liked but I was open to the idea that a name might just come to me when I saw him. I'd just have a few names you like noted and then see how you feel when the baby is born.



Cameron was on my list :) but I went with Calum instead lol he looked like a Calum.

I have a friend who doesn't find out sex of her babies before birth either. She actually didn't name her daughter until a few days after birth.

We aren't finding out the sex either, but we have names picked. If we weren't able to agree we would have definitely waited until birth to choose a name.

We never and our kids until we meet them. We usually have a short list ready to choose from but the last two kids have gotten names that weren't even on our lists. Lol they just LOOKED like their names when they came out and all the names we had picked just didn't fit them.



My daughter was going to be a Margerie, Delilah, Leila, Fallon, or marley. She came out and was OBVIOUSLY a Jillian. Lol my last baby, born 12 days ago, was going to be Ephraim, Theodore, Simon, Milo, or Victor. He came out looking like a Lucas so that is who he is now.

I'm due tomorrow and being induced tomorrow due to BP issues. I found out what my baby is , but we haven't been able to agree on a name. We've got it down to 4 and I'm not settling until I see him. Basically, it's down to 3 first names and 2 middle names. What combo he gets stuck with we'll just have to see.

You finally decided on a girl's name?

Hubs doesn't want to find out the sex when we get pregnant so I suppose we'll have a list of names. I like the idea of waiting to see what they look like.
