Is it strange that we've had our daughters name since I've been four months pregnant.

No, not at all. Why would you think it's strange?

No, of course not! You might take one look at her and go "oh fuck she's not an Emma" though, once she's here

Lol just me and other half were talking the other day and were pondering it.

Be prepared to change your mind. We thought we had it sorted at 4 months...

Also...don't tell everyone unless you want to hear something that'll put you off. If you love it, others opinions are just a nuisance!

I was drawn to one name repeatedly from quite early on. I've tried to tell myself it's too early, we might change our mind, he might not look like that name etc. Even tried to have back up names. But really, in my gut I know we're set on the name.

So no, I don't think it's weird. Equally I do think it's ok to accept if you change your mind in a few months too.

All three of mine were named before conception.

I decided as a small child what my future dd would be called.

I've always had a boy and a girl name picked out from pretty much 12 weeks (after the first scan), and we never changed our minds.
