Names? ✨

Out of pure curiosity, I’m super interested to know when/how you knew you had found the perfect name for your little one ♥️ Was it something you had planned from before conception, early on in pregnancy, late in pregnancy or after their earth-side arrival, etc. What about middle names?? When did you share their name with the world? (Family, friends, social media, etc.) Also! I’d love to hear what names you’ve chosen! (if you’re comfortable sharing!) PS. As for me, I knew my little one would be named Orion before I found out her sex. Boy or girl, that was my proud decision. I was just about 3.5-4 months pregnant when I concluded that. As for her middle names, I was closer to 6 months when I officially decided. I chose to share with my parents pretty early on (after I had decided on middle names, so I could announce her name in its entirety ✨). I only told my closest of friends around month 7 and I was so excited to have made it to month 8, I shared on social media in a long, heartfelt post (although I originally had intention of waiting for her earth side arrival). PPS. If you have any questions about my daughters name, I’d love to chat about it in our DMs :) Thanks in advance! So stoked to read your answers!! ♥️🥰

My husband wanted to give our son his father’s name (Wayne) for a middle name, and Lucas was a name we both liked and agreed on before I was ever pregnant. If we have another son, I like Mason and I think it goes well with David for my father. For girl names, Lillie Marie was one of the only names we could agree on liking (and even then it had to grow on me). When we found out we were having b/g twins the double L’s worked, and Marie/Mary has been a family middle name on both sides for several generations. Unfortunately our little girl was stillborn at 24 weeks. I had someone tell me ‘you can still use that name’, but that’s HER name, I can’t just reuse it like she didn’t exist. I have no idea what other girls name we could agree on though, if we end up with another daughter.

We decided on a name after like weeks of thinking. I’m 19 weeks now. We’re not announcing the babies name until she’s born!

We just got our anatomy scan which sealed the deal for the name

Me and my husband have always knew before conception what we wanted to name our baby it was a girl. We would name her Lincoln and Linc for short. Don’t have a solid boy name picked yet. But we are dabbling between Jaxon, Cash or Hero. Still don’t know the sex of the baby and due nov 27th. So we still have time to decide

I also have an Orion! Hes just shy of 9 month old. We kept his name a secret up until he was born. I felt confident about his name, but really wasn't sure how others would take it, so we just didn't want any negative feedback. It is a bit unusual...but everyone loves it!

My sons sperm donor has 3 other sons and the middle one picked my sons first name (Cayden) and James is my grandfathers middle name. I shared his name with his gender reveal.
