What did you consider naming your baby?

Ok, your kids are born, and named. But what were the OTHER names you were considering?? What would you have named it if it was a different sex?

  • It was going to be Ronin which is an out of work samurai, but no one liked it so it became Harrison Jude which is the result of a Harrison Ford and a Jude Law movie coming out when I was pregnant. That was just the youngest one, who incidentally was the only one out of the three who had a name before he was born!
    For a girl I have always wanted to name her Georgia, but I have had all boys and now I am done so I will give Georgia away any of you who like it can have it.

  • If we had had a girl she would have been Rossilyn Olivia -Rossi for short, after my dad (Ross). But we had Orin Merrick ... these were THE ONLY two boy names we could agree on, thankfully I like the way they sound together!

  • My oldest daughter (Meagan Greer) was called Kiley Nicole in the womb until 2 weeks before she was born and then I changed my mind, lol. If she had been a boy she would have been Owen.
    Our son (Owen Patrick) would have been Cailtyn Shaye if he had been a girl. Owen was the only boy name we had picked out for the first 2 kids.
    Our middle daughter (Brenna Caitlen) would have been Tyler Glen if she had been a boy and up until 2 days before she was born I was using the girl name I picked out for my son but then I saw Brenna in the baby name book and knew it was perfect for a girl.
    Our youngest is named after my Aunt Nora and my mom, Glenna. Her name is Nora Glenn and she was so hard to name. My other girl name I had picked out was Sarah Kiley and if she had been a boy she would have been Kyler Glen. I didn't officially decide which name for her until she was a few hours old.

  • Guess i coulda said.. My oldest is named Mickelle Jade, but I was going to name her Mickelle Marie, but her grandma kept telling people i was naming her after her mother, and it wasn't true. And my second Breanna Nicole, I was going to name her Breanna Jolene, or Jesephene.. but my husband wouldn't let me.. lol.. and my third, Faith Emily.. We've stuck with the first name we ever agreed on..

  • The only boy name I ever really considered was Zachary.

    My oldest is named Aspen. I considered Tristan and Jayden.

    My middle is named Chloe. I considered Olivia, but hubs said no. She was Cambria Noelle for several months until people started calling her Cami....and I hate that name. Also considered Ellie

    My youngest is Layla...Considered Lilly, and Paisley
