    I think from about 5 months when she had learnt to sit up, we'd crawl behind her etc and say her name and she'd always look for us xx

    George seemed to respond to his name pretty early, certainly by five months. With my daughter it was Mich later, I remember worrying at almost 12 months that she didn't consistently respond to her name. She's fine now though and chats away and responds brilliantly.

    Callie has recognised her name for a couple of weeks now, it's well cute, she'll be playing and we call her name and she looks up! She knows Callie more than Calista though.

    :haha: Thanks guys!

    I'm think my LO has soooo many nicknames that she'll never know what her actual name is! Must start using it more often... :blush: She's 5 months, so panic just yet :)

    Poor kid, doesn't know his name, only knows a jumbled mess of mixed French/English/Franglais, who knows how he'll end :( :rofl:

    I would say within the last week she has been clearly recognising her name and picking it out of a conversation about her by looking over.

    I don't think Thomas knows his name yet... it must just be coincidence that he looks at me when I say it :lol: he's 14 weeks.

    Around 5 months to consistantly recognise it, but first started paying attention to it around 3-4 months.

    My LO started at about 5 months. Although to test if he really knows his name I got my sister to call him by another name to see if he responds and he does!
