I'm not telling

I've decided not to reveal Olive's name on here until she actually arrives. Is that mean of me? I know so many of you are just DYING to know... I think it adds to the suspense ;-) Plus if I did tell you, you could all change your guesses on the bebepool site, and that wouldn't be very fair, now would it?

A small hint though: her middle name will be a family name- how's that for vague?

We did not share baby K's name until we had her. We did not know if it was a boy or a girl, and we did not share either choice in names until we had the baby...I say good for you!

I was secretly hoping you were going to name her Olive!

Andrea said...

I completely agree. I've already decided we will keep quiet about our names.

Rikki said...

That is so not fair T!

just me, dawn said...

I agree when the time comes only J and I will know until le bebe arrives :)

Who else have you told in RL, just out of curiosity?

I've been dodging that question myself. DH told his mother, though at the time I'd rather he didn't, even though she likes the name and thinks its pretty. I then told the neighbor girl, just because. Now I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't just let out with it, maybe at the baby shower. Hmmm.

I'm with you. We're not telling our names until after the birth because I don't want to hear everyone saying "oh that was my friend's dog's name" or "oh that was the kid next to me in 3rd grade that ate glue and picked his nose". And besides, it's kinda fun keeping it a secret! You're over half way! WOO HOO!

Christina said...

oooooo, good idea! :-) I might do that too, although, I'm horrible at keeping secrets.

Melissa said...

Good idea, Mama! I really regret telling everyone my daughter's chosen name when I was pregnant. If I ever have another shot at pregnancy, the whole name thing will be a surprise until the bitter end.

Rebecca said...

I totally agree. There's got to be something about this that gets to be just for you and batman!

Ophelia said...

It's all good... It's not hard to figure out that you're naming her "Candi Junior" anyway ;)

party pooper! LOL!

libby-ct said...

selfishly I'm disappointed, but I totally agree with your decision! When DH and I have the opportunity, we will not share names either. It will make for a great reveal in October! Have a great weekend!

Jen said...

Awww come on...you aren't going to tell us? I'm sure none of us will say anything.

No, I think it's cool that you are keeping it a secret. When I was pregnant Shawn and I only told our parents what our names were...but we were going to make everyone wait to find out what the baby was.

I supose we can all wait for Olive's birthday to find out the name...I guess!! :)

Emmy said...

I don't blame you. I think if I ever am in that position, I would do the same.

Can't wait to hear it when she's born!
