So DH and I have decided to not share our name choices prior to giving birth (though we are open to finding out gender and sharing that with whoever). But we have both almost let it slip once or twice... ugh!!! Any advice for us to keep it under wraps more securely?!
For what it's worth, our decision is mostly due to an incident a few years ago when my aunt named her daughter In.gvild Marg.aretha (plus our very unfortunate last name)- my mother said it was "disgusting" and did nothing to try and hide her constant disapproving facial expressions from my aunt... or even the baby.. I caught her saying "I'm sorry about your naaaame" to the baby while holding her for the first time. Now, our choices for b/g are probably in the top 20 common baby name list last year. we are so in love with them and will not turn back. I'm really not sure if my mom would like them or not, but i feel like if she finds out once the baby is born than she's less likely to make stupid comments. I know many of you have much MUCH worse examples out there but this is so engraved in my mind that I can't turn back!
