    How come you find it odd? Is it about not keeping it a secret or more that they call their child by name? Just curious

    Oh certainly not calling an unborn child by a name, i think that's a good idea. Just having the name completely out there. What if it's born a different sex?

    Though "weird" was too harsh of a word. It's just not something I would chose I do. When someone announces the birth of a child I love hearing what the name is.

    I think we will keep it secret. My sister knows what i will name a daughter or first daughter, Ella Beth after my maternal and paternal grandmothers, lovely simple name and DH agrees. Doesn't look like my sis will have kids anytime soon but said if she'd had a daughter first would have used either of the names, score its mine for both. Have a close friends sister who named her daughter Ella so would probably find it weird i also named a baby it but its a family name to me i love. Dh keeps joking and saying if we have a boy should give it Alfred as a middle name as that is my private name for him lol, I said that would be mean as very outdated but could call him Alfie as that is cute

    We are keeping our names secret. I won't know what I am calling bubba until I meet him/her. I do know of people who named their child and announced it publicly, then bubby came out the other gender!

    We told no one our name choices, purely because we didn't want them to put us off.. as other people have been saying, ultimately it is our baby so it's our decision..

    Although, we never found out the sex with our first and wont be with this one either.. much more fun that way in my opinion

    Once our son was born, we did have a lot of strange and even some rude remarks about our name choice (Draco Maxwell)

    We always picked out the name early on and once we knew the sex we had disclosed the name to others as well and refered to them by their name before birth. Luckily no opposite sexes came out lol But we're planning 1 more and I think I'd like to keep the name a surprise this time, still going to find out the sex like the other 3 but just wait till birth to announce the name.

    First time, told people, got bad response eg. oh that's a stripper name . Second time, told no one. Announced name two days after baby was born. No one said anything negative. It was already decided. Not sure why this is all underlined...

    As soon as we knew DS was a boy at 18 weeks, we starting calling him the name we had picked. Even my baby shower invites were from him
    I loved it - we got alot of personalised gifts and I felt like we already knew him when he was born.

    Now I'm pregnant again we have two names picked which we have told our parents and as soon as we find out the sex of this baby we will be calling it by its name again

    Well we had a boy and gave him an old but very uncommon Gaelic name. Easy to spell and pronounce fortunately so no one had any problems with it.

    We haven't told many people that we are pregnant but I'm pretty sure we will keep baby names a secret. I did tell my best friend ideas I had about baby names before I was pregnant and she did she whole oh I know a naughty kid with that name I hate it! I am a little worried tho because we have a friend who is 7weeks ahead of me so let's hope by coincidence they don't choose one of our names first!!!
    When my mum was pregnant with my older brother my Aunty was pregnant too. My mum told my Aunty her first girl was going to be called Jemma Louise as mums middle name is Louise. Mum had a boy then two weeks later my Aunty had a girl and called her Jenna Louise. My mum was so angry and 25years later still don't think she's happy about it!!
