'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans' Baby Name Released Way Too Soon

Jenelle EvansWow, Jenelle Evans moves fast! It's been, what, two months since the Teen Mom 2 star shared the news that she was expecting baby number two? And she's already shared her baby's gender this week and now ... the baby name!

At least, what appears to be the name Jenelle and boyfriend Nathan Griffith have chosen for their first child together (second child for each of them) is out. A source disclosed to In Touch that they've already settled on both a first and a last name. 

Are you ready for this?

Jenelle's baby boy will reportedly be named Kaiser Griffith -- no word on a middle name. Not bad! It's unusual but not weird, kind of like Jace.

More From The Stir: Jenelle Evans Shares Exclusive Details on Her Pregnancy

But here's the thing .... Jenelle isn't due until June, and late June at that! It's a little early to be sharing the name, don't you think?

Granted it was a "source," not Jenelle herself, so you know, grain of salt and all that. And maybe I've just been spending a little too much time around moms who are superstitious!

I know more than a few who were tight-lipped about the baby's name right up until the little one actually arrived and some even beyond -- for various reasons. Some moms are afraid their baby name will be "stolen," or used by some pregnant friend who pops before them (personally I've always thought that one was silly, but to each their own).

There are also the moms who worry about changing their mind ... I know a couple who didn't actually settle on baby's name until they were about to leave the hospital! One good mom friend had a name in mind right up until the end ... and then I see the announcement on Facebook, and it's totally different. This kind of thing happens all the time -- it could well happen to Jenelle too! She's got four more months of pregnancy ... plenty of time to decide Kaiser isn't going to cut it.

Not to mention lot of moms out there who carry fears about somehow jinxing the pregnancy by being too open -- be it sharing a baby name or even having a baby shower.

Something tells me Jenelle isn't the superstitious type, however. She's been an open book about this pregnancy!

How soon is too soon to share a baby name? What do you think of Kaiser?

I'm not due til August but everyone knows our baby names, I find this really silly, I get the superstition about telling about being pregnant before 3 months, which has never stopped me, but not the name thing. I'm an open book pregnant, and one of th things I am grateful for is when I lost a baby in September and had only just found out, I had told it on fb right when i found out i was pregnant and then when I did lose it I had the most Amazing support, which I would not have had if I had not shared it on fb. To each their own.

Maybe she likes the movie "The Usual Suspects"?

I told everyone about my pregnancy at one month, told the gender and name at seven months, had a baby shower at eight months. I don't believe in silly superstitions! My 8-month-old is a happy healthy girl.

Due ed of July and everyone knows the names we've got picked out. I don't get the big deal.

But Kaiser? While I realise its probably supposed to mean something to them all I can think of is a Kaiser bun.

So me and my boyfriend picked out our sons name in September when we found out his gender and I'm due in April

I told everyone I was pregnant as soon as I found out (family was always told first). I announced my sons name when we announced his gender (which was when I got the ultrasound). I told my daughters gender when we found out, told her name a few weeks later. I doubt well change it.

Why does it matter if she told the gender & name to early & it's not like she's wrote the name on a birth certificate already she has PLENTY of time to change it! Get a grip some people just like sharing the name or gender when they know & not just waiting to "introduce" the child to the world!
