It's the same with most people I know (heck, my mom knew what she was going to name me from the time she was a child). But I've also known people who pick out a name in advance and change it when they see the baby (or some people who convince themselves they're going to be having, say, a boy, and it turns out to be a girl and then they have to scramble for a name).

Most people I've known, have named their children before they were born, even those who didn't know the sex of the baby had a name for both girl and boy. Every parent has a preference for some name and some have a list of names they like, so it's obvious almost every children had their names choosen before they were born.

My parents also named my brother before he was born, but not me, because my mother didn't know my sex until I was born, but she thought she was pregnant of another boy, so I already had a name for boy. But I was born a girl instead, and my mother looked at my face and decided on my name.

Happy Birthday baby Cambridge!!
This baby is now in a quite uncomfortable position and most likely doesn't want any congratulations. I wish Catherine a safe delivery.

My sister wanted to call her third son Scott in fact she told everyone that was his name but later that day after she had time to "get to know him" she changed her mind and changed it to Clint. I had told everyone his name was scott so then I had to tell everyone she changed it. LOL I think most have a short lists. I found if parents know the gender they tend to choose a name. Although I had a friend who continued to call her baby jellybean right up until it was time to do the birth certificate she ended up calling him Byron after where he was conceived, that goodness it wasn't Wagga Wagga or Gulargambone! LOL I hope we find out quickly what the name is I would love for William to walk out and say the babies name I think it would be sweet and something unexpected.

Some people I know had to change too the name after the birth for they were said the strong sex about the baby.

As for myself, I wouldn't leak the name to anyone by fear of reactions such as "how do you dare to think about this name for this poor child"?

You know, look at the baby and see if it looks like a *name* or a *name*.
That's what my cousin did with her baby; we were suggesting names to her and in the end, she had Max and Harry as final suggestions. She thought her baby looked more like a Max than a Harry.

My thoughts and prayers are for a safe delivery.
Happy birthday Zonk!

I guess just because she was admitted 8 hours ago doesn't mean she has been in labour for 8 hours as she could have laboured at home for a while. For her sake I hope it doesn't take much longer!

Ok, I taught this whole kate-baby-thing was rediculously exaggerated and now I find myself checking the newspapers every hour or so. How did this happen? Wishing her loads of luck and hope the baby is there soon!!! And we get to see pictures soon

Not all labor is created equal. When contractions come at a certain pace- so many minutes apart- you are considered to be in labor. At that point the contractions may not hurt at all, but the time is drawing nigh for delivery. Some women swear they never had any pain while in labor, in fact. So Catherine could have been having regular contractions for a long time without it being considered 'hard labor.' Here's hoping she's lucky in that regard.

The wait at the Lindo 8 hours after Kate admitted. No news yet. Diana was in labour here for 16 hours in '82 pic.twitter.com/GEEtT3buIC
