2nd Trimester

If you've already picked a name...

Are you referring to you LO by his/her name already? We found out we were having a girl last week and I've been referring to her as Avery ever since. My mom and some of my family are doing the same. I thought it would feel weird to call her by her name but it feels totally natural. So what are you ladies doing?

Re: If you've already picked a name...

  • We are referring to her by her name.
    Dear Bump: You suck.
  • We alternate between Annabelle and Dottie- (Dottie was what we called him/ her from 5w on... b/c at first all we saw was a 'dot')

  • Aww! I obviously love the name Avery. :)  This LO has been Lucy since the day after we found out she is a girl. Everyone else calls her Lucy too, and we love it that way. It is so natural, and we did it with Avery too. When she was born, it honestly just fit!
  • we finally agreed or DH accecpted our name and it feels great to actually be able to call baby girl by her name and not something random.

  • we call her Maddie most of the time or Madison and have since we announced her name to everyone. It always felt natural to me, although it was a little weird for me hear other people say it at first, I dunno why.

  • Friends and Family are referring to him as his name. DH and I are still calling him Handsome or The Babe.
  • We refer to him as Henry or Baby Henry (we don't know another Henry so I don't know why we do this).

  • We have not picked a name and are actually keeping ours secret, but my niece was known by her name as soon as we knew she was a girl and it also felt natural.

    Although it was kind of weird when they would sign stuff (like a friend's wedding guestbook) as "Mark, Jennifer, and Baby Morgan" while she was pregnant. (Made up names, but you get the idea...)

    Um, yeah. The Bump be too crazy for pics of my kid.
  • We are calling her by her name also.  However, when people in our families asked if we decided on a name we told them a few names that we were thinking of and EVERYONE found the need to make their own suggestions on names they liked or people we should name her after.  So I told Ray that we are keeping our final decision to us b/c it was really getting on my nerves!

  • We do some. I still call him by nicknames alot also. I don't want to call him by the name in case we change it. I have been known to change my mind several times.

  • We call him Jack a lot now...and still sweetpea every once in a while..
  • Yup, we've been calling our little man by his name too- Alejandro!
  • We've started calling him by his name. It was a little weird to hear his sister and mom refer to him as Tristan, especially since his mom told me she didn't really like it. But I'm just happy we found a meaningful name we both love already.

  • We have not officially decided on a name yet, but in my head I keep accidentally calling him the name I want.  Hopefully we agree on a name soon so I can either call him that or start calling him the other name!

    I know how you feel. Everyone shot down our original girl name, Olivia. I can't believe everyone hated it so much because I loved it. My boyfriend wasn't too crazy about it eaither but he agreed. Well I changed my mind and went for Avery and was nervous about telling my family, but we loved it so much that it didn't matter what everyone else thought. They did love it to though, lol.

    Hm, that's funny that you thought it was wierd! We totally do that! haha Our close friends got married last weekend, and we signed all four of our names. :)

  • We are using her name, too.

  • Even if we do decide on a name I am not sure I can refer to an unborn baby by a proper name. It kind of creeps me out.

  • Good question!

    DH and I have pretty much picked her name, but are keeping it a secret until she's born. We really liked keeping the secret of our pregnancy in the first few weeks, and want to do the same thing with the name. I'm surprised by some people who ask me why I'd want to keep it a secret!

    Anyway, in the meantime, we're using her womb name - Wrigley, after Wrigley Field (DH wanted to use that name if we had a boy!) We usually call her Wrig for short.

    Avery is a really cute name, I love it!  I liked Olivia too a few years ago, but where I live there are A LOT of Olivia's and we both wanted something less common, so we decided on Giulia (spelling it the traditional Italian way), I wanted Giuliana and he liked Giulia so I compromised Wink

  • DH and I usually default to "the baby" and "our baby", but family and friends keep asking how Xavier is doing.  I guess it depends on the day and time :)

  • We haven't shared the name with family/friends yet. So to them we are saying he or our little one. Between ourselves, we sometimes call him by his name and sometimes we say he or the baby.

  • Her name is Hannah & that is what we call her. We've called her that since we found out she is a girl.

  • We have only known we have a girl for a couple of days, but we are calling her by her name, Elizabeth.  I love saying the name and not saying it anymore!

    This is how I got DH to like the name I wanted, haha. 

    I just started calling her the name and eventually he started liking it! I say do it! ;) It's tricky, but it works.

    I love the name Giuliana! We actually considered that name but spelled Juliana. It was an homage to my parents names' Julio and Mariana. We changed our minds though because one of our top boy names is Julian and if we ever have a boy, that'll be his name.

  • Dh and I aren't sharing the name with anyone so to be safe we just call him baby C.
  • I'm just chiming in to say that i'm jealous of everyone that has a name already picked out!  When we finally decide on a name, we will be keeping it a secret until she is born.  I don't want the family to chime in with opinions!
