7 months old and no name!

Just a little conversation piece:

I was reading People magazine (I think it was from last month) and there is this article about R&B artist Lauryn Hill. She has a seven month old baby and has yet to name her! Maybe I shouldn't be, but I was shocked by this. We all have priorities. I have never heard of anyone waiting that long. I wonder if it's a record? Has anyone else ever heard of this? I do think naming a baby is a big deal and sometimes that perfect name might not come to mind right away, but seven months seems awfully long.

People reveals that Lauryn and her brood live in a three-story brick home in suburban New Jersey with her mother. Rohan told the magazine Lauryn is focused on raising their kids and that “she loves (suburban life), being with her children, seeing them grow and instilling our teachings of righteousness into them.” The youngest child, a seven-month old girl, remains without a name. “We want a name that means ‘Glory of the Ark’; for now, we call her Baby Marley,” Rohan was quoted as saying.

How did you choose the name of your kids?

I dreamt my daughters name when I was about 3 months along. This is the way my dad came up with my name also.

That is amazing! What a great memory to tell you daughter!

I don't have children, but I couldn't imagine a nameless child. She's obviously not concerned about the babies birth certificate or about a social security number. Guess she won't be claiming the child as a dependent if the government doesn't have record of the baby.

I too had a dream about my daughter's name! My husband and I did not know the baby's gender and it didn't seem to matter because we could not agree on any names (for boys or girls). At about 5 months I had a dream we had a girl and her name was Lillian Jean (my grandmother's middle name and my mom and great aunt's first name). Around four months later Lilly was born. Good thing she was a girl, ending up with a boy may have resulted in a seven month old with no name!
