    When I was 16 I read a book called "Naomi lee" it was about a baby who was born with lots if problems and survived the odds I always said if I ever had a girl that would be her name. Didn't even consider anything else. Dd came when I was 23 unplanned but I welcomed my Naomi lee into the world.

    My surrogate nanna had a theory about names - she said to practice yelling the name down the corridor 5 times each (because you'll yell at your kid at least once in real life) and whichever one sounded better, you are meant to go with lol

    I can just imagine her yelling down the hall 'Xaviour Xaxiour Xaviour Xaviour Xaviour!!'

    I say wait and see. During my first pregnancy I was set on calling DD Tameka once she was born, I just couldn't do it, she just didn't look like it, 3 days later while I was filling out the birth certificate my sister mentioned a name and I liked it.

    With DS I liked Declan while I was pregnant then mentioned josh, my then partner liked josh so we went with that. He looks like a josh so I'm glad we did

    We had a million girls names, boys were so so hard!

    I worked in childcare, and disliked many names because they reminded me of another child....so our list was of uncommon names...

    We knew we were having a boy, and had a shortlist of about 5 (all but one had dfs middle name as their middle name, and one had a middle name with no significance other than it sounded great with the first name, df's clashed), and df kept saying the one that didn't have his middle name....even as I was being wheled to theatre after 34hrs in labour....

    I thought I liked that one too, in my head, but my gut was just sooooooo sure I may regret a name (any name) the next day. He was "nameless" for about 6 hours while df and I discussed back and fourth.

    In the end, we chose the name df kept saying....however, just incase I regretted/didnt like it, we waited till the day after he was born before telling anyone else.

    He suits his name to a tee! I couldn't imagine him as anything else! Though mum still thinks he could have been a samuel.

    I came home from Harry Potter #6 saying I'd just heard "Harry" about 300 times and still liked it, which I took for a good sign!

    I myst be lucky cos its always been really easy for DH and I to choose.

    DS1 I suggested the name at about 22 weeks and it stuck. No discussions, and middle names are always family names.

    DS2 we said how much we liked the name whilst TTC... so 6 months before I was even pregnant it was decided.

    DS3's name was agreed upon at approx 25 weeks. Middle name was a bit harder cos we're running out of male family names lol.

    I had a little girl with the name in my nursery group few years ago when working in childcare. I've only come across 2 girls with the same name and 1 man

    I don't do the "wait to see them" part, both my kids came out all bruised looking like they'd done a few rounds with Mike Tyson.

    DH and I wrote down names we liked then discussed (fought) until we had one of each we liked, then didn't tell anyone so we couldn't be swayed.
    For middle names we used family names.
    In saying that I love a Saige

    DD- her name is Reese Margaret, her middle name is a tradition from my Mums side of the family I have that middle name, so does my Mum, so does my Nan and that has been going on since 1872 from what my Nan could find out. Well because her middle name was predestined DH fought me on every name and the only name we agreed on was Reese.

    DS1- Cameron Ian, his middle name is my Dads name and also the name of the Dr that delivered him. We had a list of about 5 names Cameron was always my favourite but DH thought it was girly but when he was born DH agreed with me that he was a Cameron.

    DS2- Charlie David, DH's middle name is David and from the moment my Mum found out I was pregnant she called him Charlie and DH and I talked about it and decided since Mum had never named a child (my Dad was like DH because of the middle name wouldn't let Mum have the name she wanted) we would let her pick his name but kept it a surprise until he was born, and it worked out great because Charlie's meaning is the same as DHs so they match perfectly.

    I love the name Willow but they are all beautiful

    Ds names is Riley Ross - his first name we found on line we both liked and that was it, easy :-) his middle name is dhs uncles name who passed just before we found out we were pregnant.

    Dd name is Indyanna Grace- we had 2 names picked out this and hayley but couldn't decide we decided when we saw her for the first time:-) and her middle name we found and liked and despite which ever first name we chose it still would've been the same

    Name picking was easy for us I suppose
