    My friend wrecked the name Nicholas for me I've always liked it and always been vocal about it hubby doesn't like it so it wasn't on the list, however she said it reminds her of 'knicker-less' so now hats ruined for me! Lucky hubby doesn't like it huh!

    My MIL ruined my daughters name to be by convincing my hubby it was a boys name... Yeah in like the 1800's lol (Aubrey was the name) I still absolutely adore the name... :-(
    This exactly.

    I'm in the same situation - 22 weeks and we have some ideas for names. Got absolutely hounded at work to tell ppl my list and I ended up telling them. Completely regretted it.

    Just tell people you're keeping it a secret and don't give in.. If people get upset then they really need to grow up. Tell them you'll tell them when bubba is born : )

    I've done that both times, and when people ask if we've picked a name I just say "Yes, but it's top secret!" No one's pushed it.

    I'm in the same boat too- 23 weeks tomorrow and we've had our name set for a few weeks.

    People can be weird- we found out the sex, we WANT to tell people but they don't want to know (my brothers in particular are very fussy about this).

    We know the name, we DON'T want to tell, but people keep asking.

    All I told people was that we hadn't chosen a name yet.

    We had what we wanted in mind but wanted to see if it suited her.

    I kept my first sons name a secret, the only person who knew was my SIL as her last name is Jackson and I Only had one name I loved and that was Jaxon. So I ran it by her .
    My second son I told a few people and was shocked at a couple of responses , one being from my cousin who cracked it as that was her boys name for when her and her fiancé had a baby. She was quiet emotional about it and 5 years later she has had her first child and a girl, where the name was Kaiden and for a boy so lucky I decided not to pay attention to the outburst about my name 'stealing'.

    Just say you don't know. We knew the sex and name of DD2 and just said we didn't know when questioned, it was easy, people really aren't as interested as we like to believe.

    Have some fun with it! With our first, we were pretty certain of her name, Isla, from the beginning - we told family and our best friends. We told everyone else the name was Gertrude or Beryl (stone faced) - they would be like "you must be joking" and we would respond with - no, Beryl is my grandmothers/aunts/etc name and we want to honor that... Most people backed off

    Just say you haven't chose one yet. Nothing coming to you and you want to see what baby looks like first.
