I am not pregnant, but hope to be soon. For a long time, I have kept a wish list of names that I hope to someday use for my children. My friends and family have begun having kids, and my favorite girl’s name, which is not very popular, has already been used. I am TERRIFIED that my other favorite names will be used.
My names all fall into a pretty particular style, so there are only a few friends and family members who would potentially choose the same names. Is there any way to make some kind of agreement with them that I won’t use “their” names, and they won’t use “mine”?
Would love to hear other’s thoughts on this!
