We have a boy first/middle and a girl first.¬† I *really* have my heart set on a middle (in honor of my grandmother), but my husband won't discuss it.¬† I told him if baby comes and it's a girl and he's refused to talk to me about it up to that point then I'm just doing whatever I want!¬† And, yes, I'm totally serious too!¬† Part of the problem is that he's positive it's a boy so he seems to feel that we don't need to discuss the possibility of a girl.

Has anyone had a named picked out for a while (called baby in womb the name, shared with family) then changed it at or near birth? ¬†My husband and I LOVED and agreed on "Story" for our little girl with my middle name "Ina"... I love it, but am wondering now that her birth is getting close if it will be right for her or perhaps another name. ¬†We like "Maya" too. ¬†

If it feels right to change her name, especially once she's born and you meet her, I'd say go for it!
Thanks for the replies about a middle name for "Fern". I like the idea of something longer as well...Ophelia would be in honor of a family friend who my mother knew since childhood, Pandora came from a dream (related to the myth of Pandora's box), and Silvana means beautiful forest. I am going to look back over family trees for some good, long Irish names today :)
