We kept our 2nd a secret. It is hard but I just kept tellin people we hadn't picked out names yet...

I found it easier telling people we had a name picked but wouldn't be saying a word. People stopped asking what names we liked, etc.

The easiest way is to tell people you haven't yet thought of any names. It stops the conversations along those lines.
As for yourself, you'll just have to be strong and keep it in!

I told people we had a top 10 but weren't announcing anything until bub was born and we knew which name suited. No-one pushed the issue.

Just don't tell them. Most people really aren't that invested - it's just something to ask you. This is my 4th baby, we know the sex and are pretty sure of the name, but no one asks and we aren't telling willy nilly. I think because it's my 4th it's not on the top of the mind or the tip of my mouth.
Maybe call it spud or something in the meantime so you don't let it slip.

We've just told people we won't be telling the name until he's born. Most people haven't pushed the issue. Except my mum. She is sooo persistent lol...she's not being pushy or anything, she knows we won't tell and it's become somewhat of a joke but she would be thrilled if I changed my mind and decided to tell her

I have 5 weeks left and have so far we have just said we have chosen our name but arent telling anyone until she's born and left it at that. We warn them its not a fancy, 'awesome' name...its actually rather plain and normal...but we just dont want to tell anyone until she is born. People will keep asking but just stick to your guns

We won't tell the babies name only because I don't want to hear the response from people.. If ppl don't like a name, once the baby is born and named they tend to shut up, but prior to birth they think they are doing you some kind of favour by offering their opinion.
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... :-(

We haven't 100% decided but we are keeping it a secret when we do. We're not even telling people names we're considering.
Just don't make it an issue. If someone asks just say yes, you're not telling and move on
