Baby Naming

Before I was pregnant, or even way back before I even got married. I always love the idea of naming my own child. I have all the list that I wanted to name my future children. I feel so certain by then that my future kids will be named like what I want them to be.

Now, that I'm pregnant, baby naming is sure a mind-boggling experience. And then there's your significant other that you have to consider as well, after all he help you create the growing life in your tummy. But of all those list that I always had in mind, there was not one of them that we ended up choosing.

We settle with a name that my husband literally pick, but of course with my Approval. I already told him what kind of names I like, I'm not Old Fashion when it comes to names. I want to be a little different and not so common. I was really surprise that he did pick that name. I would have never guess.

Although we as a couple, finalize the name of our unborn child. I decided not to tell the world about it just yet.

Part of it is that, I wanted it to be a surprise, I was thinking of telling people later on when I'm about to pop or really close to my due date. The other part is avoiding nasty comments or reactions. It's not that I care, but the thought of people having negative comments really is annoying and depressing. No matter how other people say, "relax! it's not their child" but the truth is, it will linger in your mind. I have unfortunately, seen it before and even though I was not the one who was in that position, I felt bad for the couple. Pregnancy should be celebrated and people who has nothing nice to say should just shut it.

I have already been asked by a bunch of people about our Baby's name. It does make me feel cornered to be honest, as if I'm doing something bad. I want to tell them that we have not decided yet, however, opinions might arise. So, I decided to be honest and let them know that we do have a name in mind but we're not ready to share it yet. Amazingly, people are respectful about our decision, although some random friends and co-workers might have those reactions where they will say "Are you serious?" "Why not?" I just let it slide. For me, this is better and will stay that way until I'm ready.

Anyway, I'm really glad that my husband and I finally decided on a name. My husband literally love the name. Baby naming was definitely something that made us more closer to each other.

  1. Congrats on your pregnancy! That's how I was. Before pregnancy I had a list of names I wanted to name my children. Well, either of them are named those names LOL!!! I think it's awesome you aren't telling one the name of your baby yet. Naming a child is such a special thing.

  2. Baby names are so hard! Keeping it to yourself is probably a good decision. I decided to tell my parents with both of mine and got negative responses but I didn't budge. I have a Mila and a Max and I still love the names even though some may not. Can't wait to hear the baby name!

    1. Mila and Max are not bad names at all. I just don't know why some people have issues. I guess, that's just how they are. at the end of day, it's our kids,and we name them, what we want. I'm actually a little excited to tell people the name, and see how they respond. But for now, I'll just keep it a secret.
