What’s Your Baby Naming Strategy?

We never quite thought of expectant parents having a baby naming strategy until we saw this question over in the forums.(So thanks, drhenry, for the inspiration.)

But then we realized this was an intriguing idea and that in fact, we’d had baby naming strategies of our own — different ones for different babies.

But enough about us: What’s YOUR baby naming strategy?

Spend months collecting every theoretical name possibility, researching and discussing them all, and then debating the final choice days after the baby is born?

Swapping Top Ten lists with the baby’s other parent until you winnow it down to one choice you both can live with?

Or what?

And how did that strategy work out?  Would you employ it again or try something different?
