Will You Pick the Name After You Meet Your Baby?

baby names

My partner and I were pretty set on the names for our babies before we had them. But not 100 percent. There was a part of me that couldn't say for certain, yes, this baby is Jasper or this baby is Magnolia until I'd seen them. I mean, I know all newborns sort of look the same, but still. I had to see those faces first.


I read a fun post in The CafeMom Newcomers Club asking moms if their babies looked like their names.

Mezmer said it was interesting to her how her son really looks like an Ethan and her twin girls look like Chloe and Zoe, and she wondered if other moms felt the same about their kids. Many moms said they did think their baby looked like the name they'd picked -- and they shared the cutest pics!

I don't know if my kids "look" like their names or not, but I do think the names suit them (that's them in the photo!).

What do you think? Do you want to meet your baby before you decide on the name?
