I wont be having a back up name... its hard enough to come up with just the 1 name lol. I wasnt supposed to be named Caroline, I was supposed to be Catherine, however when my older sister saw me for the first time she said something like "awww Caroline is so cute" so my parents left it like that lol.

We don't decide on names until we meet the baby. We usually have a list of 3-5 names per gender and then once we meet the baby we settle on one.

Same here but we only have two names that works with our surname , bit hard having a rare surname that makes names turn into

we have a hard time deciding on names so we'll likely have just one or two and decide when he's born. I have never named any of mine before they were born.

We have 1 name for either a boy or a girl. Same name but different spellings. This lil Elf's (as she's called right now) name will be Tobi Erin but if for some reason, she turns out to be a he, his name will be Toby Aaron.

We don't have different names picked out this time around. Never really did with the others as well. We just knew what they were going to be called before they were born.

I don't fully get how seeing a baby will help with determining his or her name.. Guess I'm a little quirky wanting to have certain things done before baby comes.

When we meet the baby usually DH and I both just know what the baby's name is. I know it sounds weird but it isn't something we feel confident deciding until we meet him/her.
