If you want into labour right now and didn't know you were pregnant, what would you name the baby?

Boy's name and girl's name?

Jesus or Mary.

I'm infertile, peri-menopausal, have a Mirena, and DH has had a vasectomy, so that baby would be some sort of bloody miracle.

Pregnancy was the worst nine months of my life - I'd be deliriously happy to go into labour without knowing I was even pregnant!! 😄

Names - Caspian Theodore for a boy. Tessa for a girl, not sure about a middle name.

I’d go with Zoe Elizabeth, Mary Celeste, James Henry or Travers William.

No particular naming style here and no more babies in my future.

Sharona. Or maybe Eileen.

I agree with Ozquoll, skipping pregnancy would be grand!

I've got coronavirus on the brain, so all I can think is "My Corona" and "Covid-19", to the tunes of My Sharona and Come on Eileen, respectively 🤪

Because to be frank, l do not ever want to be pregnant again.
Real or imagined.

Saphron(not a made up name and is related to the greek name Sophronia). One of my favourite names since I heard it as a teen.

Boy probably Kenji or Gray. (I can feel the eyerolls from here ;) )

My son already has  unique name, so would fit in nicely.

Roy, after the dog that DH won't let me get.

#18 Ollie83

Lydia Jane or Jemima Ollie or Alice Ollie

James Stanley or Huon James

#19 Prancer is coming

Posted 16 March 2020 - 04:56 PM

Sapphire or Raven for a girl

Mack or Devon for boy.

i think I would already have a Devon if the name was not linked to a sandwich meat.  Such a shame, I love that name.

#20 Baroness Bubbles

Gideon for a boy and wither Violet or Reagan for a girl

#21 onetrick

Posted 16 March 2020 - 05:44 PM

Do I need to consult DH? I'm almost 38w pregnant and he wont discuss names.
If it was up to me, we would have a girl with one of the following;
Penelope Mara
Mackenzie Alice
Aurora Mae
Boys are harder with middle names, but for first names I like;
Phoenix (this seems fitting for an unknown pregnancy when you thought you were done..??)

Hope, especially if you give birth today...

#23 MooGuru

Girl: Hannah or Mara
Boy: Henry or Olle
