    Yes, I'm a little afraid to document my (difficult getting hubby to agree!) front runners, particularly for girls. They are not common but not uncommon, and I think they could very easily become popular. I saw a prime time TV show introduce a character with one of my fave girls names the other day... which means its probably destined to take off - drats!

    We keep our names secret! We tell people if its a girl or boy, I think that's enough for them! Plus I don't want anyone stealing our name! My cousin has the EXACT same name as me! If we don't tell anyone & someone uses our name, it wasnt exactly "stolen" lol more of a coincidence. And not only that, I don't want anyone else's opinions on the name we have chosen, not their child - plus any negative comments, no matter how much you love the name, can turn you off a bit =(

    I find that people always ask my son (almost 3yrs old) what's his baby sisters name, in hopes that we have told him & he will blurt it out, even if we won't lol good thing we haven't told him yet!

    If I could keep a straight face, I would tell people we are thinking of naming baby Frogmella if it is a girl, to see if people will be awkwardly polite or will come out and say WTF? But I know I can't so i miss out on that fun *sigh*

    Secret

    Well I did tell a close friend but that was when I didn't think we were going to use the name. I'm not sure if she remembers though lol.

    We also told a stranger at a friend's DD birthday party lol. His DS had a similar name so we were talking about it.

    We've told people the sex of bub so that's enough! Got to keep some mystery.

    Mine are secret. I've had two 'friends' use names I've chosen. One was even a name to honour a friend who passed away. This person still used it for her baby even though she knew the meaning the name had for me. If bub is a girl I will still use the name to honour my friend.

    With my DD I didn't tell anyone or do any research and as a result my poor girl got the most popular first AND middle name for that year. She has since altered it slightly to feel a bit more unique. (Emily to Emmie)

    I'm telling everyone our little guys name, to give them time to get used to it. I gave my DP the job of naming our boy and he has picked his favourite book character, Yossarian. So yeah, takes a bit of getting used to but it's growing on me.

    Initially I wanted to keep my names secret as when I'd toss ideas around with family and friends, they all got ruined.
    I finally settled on a name and EVERYONE GUESSED IT! Grrr.
