    Do you see your future child's name everywhere???

    I would really love to name (if I have one)DD Lily. All the sudden I see that name or variations of it everywhere. Last year, I didn't know anyone with that name. Now it is on my internet chatrooms, signs, news stories. It is like I am being stalked by the name.

    Has this happened to you?

    TOTALLY!!! Believe me, by the time you have had children for 20 years that happens a lot!!!

    Interestingly, I kinda predicted some trends with names I liked only to be extremely annoyed when a name that was unpopular suddenly became really super trendy.

    Claire, Violet, Evelyn, Emma...I loved all those names before they were popular and now I feel like I couldn't use any of them.

    I've never been one to pick out names pretty far in advance. I'm pretty set on a certain boy's name if I ever have another. It's not that common, but yes, I now see it everywhere I think it's just a matter of what you focus on.

    Yes. For YEARS, before I had kids, I had planned to name my first son Jackson. But by the time I had a son, it was so popular I couldn't use it. Now it is in the top 10 or something. I still love the name, though.

    Nope. But this is just because if I think of a boy I can't have a name for him. Maybe this is a sign I never get one anyway

    I think it is more Boy names are just harder. You can't have anything too feminine, but you also don't want to name the kid something that is too over powering. I only have like 3 boy names I like and about 12 girl names I love.

    We ran out of girl names after DD2, but some how managed to find a couple more. I told Dh that I really don't want to talk names until we have an u/s. It just makes it too hard.
    thank you GD

    Our DS3 was our only baby we didn't know would be a boy until he was born and I was convinced he was a girl. I spoke to 'her' scan photo and called her by her name and everything (what an idiot!). It was only a week before 'her' birth that I paniced and wondered whether we should choose a boy's name 'just in case'. It gets tricky to come up with a new name when you have several of the same sex already - but I found we came up with new ones we hadn't even considered each time rather than names from old lists! I pretty much have a boy name and a girl name in mind for next time already, without even giving it too much thought, which is odd!
