Thanks for the link on letting kids name their siblings. My college roommate was almost four when her mom got pregnant with her second child, and her parents let her name the baby. Fortunately, my roommate picked the name Brian. Her parents dodged a bullet there!

We had a list of names that DH and I liked. Once our daughter was born we chose which first name suited her. Then our 8yo daughter was allowed to choose one of her middle names from the list (about 8 remaining names). She was thrilled to be able to do this and we were able to stay away from anything we didn’t like.

My friend’s mom let their two children think of names… the girl’s name was Alyssa,6, and the boy’s name was Jack, 4. So the mom said “if it’s a boy Jack can pick out a name with a J and if it’s a girl, Alyssa can pick out a name starting with A.” It was a boy so they chose Joshua, if it was a girl it would’ve been Anna. I thought that was a cute idea.

I heard that Madonna let Lourdes name her brother. She of course chose Rocco.
