summary:

Family and friends take their best guess of baby’s name.

Choosing your baby’s name is one of the first challenges new parents face. Keeping it a secret until the birth can be even tougher. If well-meaning friends and relatives are becoming too anxious, here’s a fun way to make the wait worth their while.

Invite inquisitors to mark down their guess of baby’s name on a piece of paper. Have them write down their own name as well. Keep all of the guesses in a folder. Whoever picks the right name (or comes the closest) wins! Offer a small prize such as a framed picture of your little one. Of course, don’t forget to autograph it!
