Have you decided on a name for baby?  If so, are you sharing prior to giving birth?  Are you and your partner in agreement on the name?

Have had two names picked for many years now. We get to use the boy name first :) Xavi Diego - It's pronounced Cha-vee. It's fun to call the baby Boo because it's cute, but it's a totally different feel when we talk to him and call him by his name. A lot of peole say, "Have a back up just in case he comes out and doesn't look like a Xavi" No it's not going to change, his name is Xavi he will always be a Xavi theres no need to change it :)

Wife to Diego
Mommy to Luna and Panda - Furrybabies
Soon to be mommy to Xavi - Due April 27, 2014

Hahaha!  You're so funny, Kristy!  Decided on a name...pfft!

In other words...yeah, right.  We can't even agree on names, let alone decide on one before the baby is born.  Is it true that in the US (or is it state-by-state?) you have to name the baby before you leave the hospital?  Here in BC we have thirty days to name Baby and submit the paperwork.  With our first it took us the full thirty days!  With Monster, we had him named right away, and with Mayhem it took I think four days.  The NICU nurses kept teasing us because they didn't like calling him "Babyboy".  ;)  They were sweet about it, though, not rude.

The only names that we have agreed on are Rachel Grace Alexandra for a girl and Owen Conner Somethingorother for a boy.  With any luck, those names will fit, because I don't know what we'll do if they don't!
