Sharing Baby's Name Before Birth?

The proud parents-to-be just revealed that they’re having a boy, but they’re maintaining a code of silence when it comes to their name choice. According to Duhamel, even Fergie’s extended family do not know the moniker — and will not until baby’s big arrival.

“Some people may not like it, some people may think it’s really cool, but we don’t really care — that’s why we’re not telling anybody,” he explains. “We’re not even telling [Fergie's] mom because we don’t want to hear anything about it. That way you don’t feel like you’re second-guessing yourself. It’s between us — it’s a sacred thing.”

Where do you stand?  Do you share your baby name with friends/family before the birth? Or, does it remain a surprise until baby's arrival?

Once we have a name nailed down, we'll likely share it.  I just don't want to be harassed the rest of my pregnancy! Besides... if people don't like what we've selected... well TUFF!  Ha!
