If I had been a boy I would have been Andrew or Benjamin.<br><br>
If my mom hadn't been more stubborn than my dad, he was going to name me Brandy.<br><br>
They planned to name me Alexandra but I "didn't look like one." If anyone knows what an Alexandra looks like, please fill me in.<br><br>
Besides that, they wanted to name me Peregrine, which I think is in a Hobbit book, right?<br><br>
Then my mom watched a <a href="http://polish.imdb.com/title/tt0067380/" target="_blank">sucky romance movie</a> on TV and took a liking to the name of the protaganist.<br><br>
That was the beginning of my troubles. A week later my placenta abrupted and I fought my way hypoxically into the world, bearing the name of a character from a Jim Backus movie.<br><br>
I mean Lord, Jim Backus. A Jim Backus movie. No wonder I love MST3K.<br><br>
What were you almost named?

Shoot me a PM with some background info (location, what you use the car for) and we'll talk!<br><br>
I forgot to mention, my brother is so lucky he's male. He was named Max, after my mom's OB (lol) instead of...Kyleeann. So 80s!

Mom wanted to named me Roberta (Bobbie) Jean. If I'd been a boy, I would have been Harry Jey, Jr. Thank GOD dad had his way. No offense to any Robertas, but I really hate that name.

I would have been Rachel had my dad not realized that in combination with my maiden name (Richter), it sounded rather like a dog growling....

My mother was going to name me Amy, but they gave her some gas before they pulled me out with forceps so she wasn't in much of a position to make the final decision.<br><br>
My dad, who was kicked back in the waiting room reading a Red Sonja comic book, decided that I was going to be named Sonja. I kid you not. Wanna see my chain mail bikini? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
At least I wasn't a boy, I probably would have been named Conan. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

If I had been a boy, I'd have been Christopher. My mom wanted to name me Caroline, apparently, but bio dad won out. I'm glad. I like my short, simple name.

My mom wanted to name me Mary if I was a girl, or Matthew if I was a boy. My dad did not like the name Matthew as it had bad associations for him. He already had a daughter named Mary, so my mother named me after an aunt instead of her mother. Which is why my name is Amy. I'm not sure if they ever decided on a boy's name. My little sister would have been Jason.

i was suppose to be Kiki Leilani (my dad was stationed in hawaii when i was born). my mom's weird reason for not naming that was she was trying to picture me as some high executive and people not taking me seriously bc my name was Kiki!<br><br>
If i was to be a boy, it would have been Rory.<br><br>
but then that darn country and western song came on on her way to the hospital and that's how i got the name, Jeannie Marie!

My dad wanted me to be Hannah. I just don't think that one would fit me.<br><br>
If I were a boy, my mom wanted Andrew or Aaron, and my dad wanted Dylan or Drew. I would have voted for Dylan.<br><br>
My name is Katie.
