Family and some friends know. We will probably share when we find out the gender but I dunno with the girl name we might wait till birth to tell everyone else. No for fear of neg comments, but because it's so unique. :)

We are waiting to share our news with everyone (aside from close family and friends) until we find out the gender.

I don't plan on telling one side of the family because a younger cousin is also having a baby around the time is me, and I love the girl name I picked out

What name?

We're lucky if we can decide on a name within the registry time frame of 30 days after birth.

I told my SIL my choice for a boy name, then I found out I was having a girl and she was pg with a boy. Then she announced the name she chose... Or rather the name I chose. She planned to use that name for months but changed at the last minute (thankfully). If I had it to do over again I would never have shared the names we had picked out.

I don't have a problem telling people names I like. When we had my dd, we didn't name her until after she was born because we couldn't agree on any names. I'm just hoping we will be able to pick a name ahead of time this time so we'll have a name to share! lol

We don't usually keep the name a secret. Like a previous poster said, if you say you're considering a name then people always give you their two cents.

With my boys I think I told the name to people after we decided on their names but this time if I'm going to announce it after the baby is born.
