In an age when parents are naming their children after Instagram filters, it only makes sense that the photo-blogging site would play a major role in a mum blogger’s pregnancy journey.
This has proven to be the case for Australian blogger Sophie Cachia, aka The Young Mummy, who has asked her 127K-strong Insta following to come up with a name for her unborn child.
Sharing a photo of her ultrasound scan to her social media account, Sophie admitted that the move is a result of feeling ‘lazy’ about her second pregnancy.
And so the NAME GAME begins! The best part I think about not finding out is coming up with two - or in our case last time, three - possible names for your child. We didn't know whether we were going to have a Bobby, or a Valentina in our lives forever! (Third name I'm keeping hush because I still like it) First pregnancy I was OBSESSED with baby names, second time around I'm like 'meh, that will do'. I'm totally being a lazy cow and would like to be inundated with your many suggestions. Put below if you think B2 is a boy or a girl, and give me your best name suggestions that go with Bobby. Ps we don't fancy traditional, this time we're going all out. To think this might be my last pregnancy - woah! X

If anyone is stuck for baby name inspiration, you might want to follow in Sophie’s footsteps – because her Insta followers have well and truly delivered!
Indeed, Sophie’s fans have answered the call with some gorgeous suggestions, from Everlei and Levi to Rocco and Xander.
Do you have a suggestion that you would like to add? And would you turn to social media for help with naming your own tot?
