Naming Baby, Now or Later

Will you be naming your baby prior to Delivery, or After Delivery.

I have always selected a few Favorite names then waited to look at my baby to select one i thought was befitting. However this time I have a favorite name already but I'm worried my hubby won't like it. I think i will make a list and get him to choose from the list of maybe 5 names.

We've always had them ready before our 20 week u/s. This time is different. DH and I have a couple of names we like. I think we'll try the wait and see approach this time. :)

We pick the name before delivery. As soon as we find out the gender, we try to nail it down. Well, I guess this is really MY need to choose a name... I feel like it helps me bond with the baby while it's growing in my belly :)

We've agreed on a first name but are still debating the middle name.

We've always had the baby's name picked out before the baby was born.

We have a name set for the ultrasound. That's how we have done it for the last 2 kidos.

We named both of our babies prior to delivery, but we also knew the gender prior. This time we are not finding out the gender so I think we'll go to the hospital with a few names for each gender and just choose after we see him or her.

With our first we did not know the sex so we went in to the delivery room with a short list for each sex and choose once we met our little man. This time we are finding out the sex so I don't really know what we will do. Either way we don't plan to share the n

We always discuss names as soon as we find out we're pregnant.
