So excited!

We finally decided on a name for our little boy!! Biggrin I'm so excited that the decision has finally been made! :woohoo: I thought that DH and I would never be able to agree and both be completely happy with it, and I certainly didn't think that we would make a decision before he was born!

Well, that's a tease! Smile haha Share? I have a friend who is 35 weeks pregnant and her SO refuses to discuss names until the baby is born. I don't know how they're going to name this child! haha I think a discussion, at the very least, needs to be had before the baby is born to come up with a few names, anyway!

Deciding on a name was so hard with DS! We both had names we loved and I think in the back of our minds we both knew he'd be a William, but it wasn't really official until he was born.

I have a co-worker who has a 1 week old baby girl who has yet to be named. They can't decide!

I like the fact that DH and I agreed on a name early on because I've now bonded with the baby and have been able to identify him by his name! I just hope I don't change my mind when he's born! haha I've certainly heard of this happening!

I agree...TEASE! lol I'm glad you finally decided. I thought DH and I never would either. He never wanted to talk about it because to him it's not real until the baby's here. Of course I'm like do you see my tummy? It's huge, and moving on its own! This is real goofball! With DS1 I just knew what I wanted and DH didn't really have an opinion so it was really easy and he let me have my way. This time he seemed to care so it was harder. I really wanted to have a name picked out beforehand so we could talk to DS about it. He already walks around talking about baby Drake now and it's sooo cute!

The other day when I was working on their matching picture frames (I'll post when they're done) DS came up and realized that their names had all the same letters except 1 (KADEn/DrAKE and got really excited. It's the little things like that, to me, that made it worth pushing DH to talk about.

I nagged and quizzed and bugged DH with #1 and finally in the hospital he decided in about 3 seconds! It wasn't real to him before that! So, we had to decide right away because we were leaving for Brazil and baby needed a passport!

#2 was a breeze by comparison. I let DH & DS decide. Turns out its the name of an old girlfriend of DH's and a friend of DS's! LOL

So glad you've worked it out NOW and are both happy with it!

HAHA!! I know - tease! But I just feel like I need a few days to keep it to myself and enjoy it before I tell the world, you know?? I'll share when I'm ready, of course - I won't keep you all in the dark forever! Biggrin

LOL! Neither DD nor DS2 had a name for over a month!!! You'd think it would be easier the second time around since names were already discussed previously. We just had a big issue because We loved DS1's name, and we were having a hard time deciding whether we would re-use it (or part of it) or not. Plus with DS2 it wan't a top priority. Getting him to fee properly, and get some sleep were my top priorities. Names? Details!

I WISH DH and I could agree on names - we still havent... everything I like he hates and pretty much the same goes for his names. I try to compromise but some of the names he suggested - I was like what, is he serious or this a joke? hahaha cant wait to hear everyone's names!

You know, honestly in the beginning, I really didn't like any of DHs names. Not that I hated the names, but I just didn't want them for OUR baby, KWIM? So we ended up with a group of 4 names to choose from - 2 were DHs and 2 were mine. And the longer those 4 names kind of sat and hung out in my head, the more they all seemed like OUR names, rather than MINE or DH's. So one night after a month of having those 4 names, we cut it down to two. And then, one just seemed to stick out after a while, and in my mind, I knew which one I wanted. And luckily, when I mentioned that to DH, he agreed. Smile And now, I can't even remember at this point which one of us originally wanted this name. So I guess that's a good thing, right??

Cool that you agreed on something you both love!

We won't be picking a name until baby is born as the babys gender is a surprise. Hope we can agree on a name before leaving the hospital. Smile

That's awesome that you agreed on a name. Can't wait for you to share. DH and I just kinda spit out the name after we found out it was a boy. And we haven't looked back.
