    Its a lovely name!! Heres a tip for now though, if people ask if youve decided on a name just say no, or say your keeping it as a suprise.

    You cant please everyone, if you could, we'd all have the same name lol

    Go with what you love!!!

    I've not told anyone i know our baby names choices (other than on here - but when it's anonymous it's fine!) as i really don't want to know there opinions.

    I know when my niece was named Molly when she was born, i didn't really like it. But now i love it because it's her name, and she's a wonderful little girl and it really suits her. So a random name means nothing until it's attached to a gorgeous little person, so stick with what your gut tells you..

    I had this when pregnant with Toby:hissy:

    People keep asking this time "have you thought of any names yet?" I just say no:rofl:

    Nobody tries to change your mind once baby is born and named, they only seem to do it when you're pregnant. Don't tell anyone or lie and say "Paul" or something:dohh:


    By the way it's a lovely name, different but not "too" unusual either....I like it, can I steal it?:rofl:

    i know a mason, I think its a great name. I love louie too katiensam, that's deffo on my list, I can't believe that your family would just call him a different name! If my mum did that to me I would ask her if she wanted to be called grannie or nannie and call her which ever she disliked. Or maybe bumwit.

    Kateqpr, you didnt like the name Molly.

    AAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

    Only kidding!lol!I think Mason is lovely. We all choose our names because we like them personally, and that is all that matters. I like other names, but the names you choose for your own children represent your own tastes and feelings.People may not like my children's names, but I think it is rude for people to be negative to someones face. I think it is important for people to be positive about suggestions and supportive, not negative, so that is just not on.

    Shimmy,

    :hugs: i remember having exactly the same thing, up till our gender scan, then i never bothered telling any one because it was the same! and even now - 'why do you have to spell madeliene like that!' 'hope's a bit strange, is the next one going to be charity' - actually i quite like charity, but no probably not, :grr: sending you huge hugs and i love Mason, think its a gorgeous name :hugs

    I had one name choice ruined already because I told people and now I am not telling anyone the new name I picked even though i have no boys name just a girls name. Keep it to yourself because everyone thats not preg will be naming your child for you anyway and diagreeing. :( its sad.

    I think Mason is a great name. It's unique but not super odd like say um "Apple".

    I keep telling everyone we don't know what name we like yet..even though we have more than one in mind. This has sort of backfired though because now my dad keeps calling the baby "Harry".....:dohh:
