  • My oldest DD's boy name was picked out before we even found out she was a girl. She was set to be Wyatt Alexander.
    But, she's Eliza Isabelle.

    My youngest DD is Gemma Gabrielle (G.G) but, we never decided on a boy name for her. My ex wanted Jack. I wanted Ian or Griffin.

  • When I was in high school I desperately wanted a little girl names Dreamer Angelique. Which I still think is pretty but I would NEVER use. lmao.

    DS is Carl Padaric and was going to be Quinn Alexis had he been a girl
    DD is Quinn Cameron she was going to be Cameron Mark had she been a boy

    DH and I decided before we were married we wanted a Carl and a Quinn. Talk about planning!

  • Back when I was young and dreaming about kids, I would have had Joel Michael or Jamie Elizabeth. But then my Sarah Elizabeth came along in my old age--believe me, I felt old enough at 36--so she just about chose her own name based on two of the women in the Bible who were blessed with babes after they thought they wouldn't have any. (Elizabeth is my middle name.)

  • Well with my first I wanted Briana Dh wanted Gicel. After 11 hrs of labor and a c section I said Gicel because I never wanted to have another child. We were going to name her Carlos Anibal after dh and his uncle who passed.

    My second dd got Briana though I wanted it to be Aubrey dh didn't like it. If inane was a boy I liked Liam no middle name lol.

    I didn't want kids ever so I never picked out names until I was pregnant.
