What would have your children been named if they were the opposite sex? If you have more then 1 did you carry over the unused name for the previuos one or did you change your mind in between?

My son would have been Jayla Lee but instead he is a Joe Jr.. we changed our mind though over 2 years time and this baby who is Due in Oct will be Named Alayla Jade if it is a girl and boys name is up in the air

  • Well, if we have a boy in the future he will probably be named Leonardo, Leo for short. I like the name Lalo, but Leila and Lalo . . probably too corny. If we have another girl, hmmm I have no idea what we would name her, probably another L name.

  • Sean would've been Jessica, and it wasn't until after we had him that I realized how many Jessicas there are out there, so I'm glad he ended up Sean.

  • If my son was a girl, she would have been Madelyn Nancy -- after my MIL. If my next child is a girl, I'm not liking Madelyn so much anymore, but Nancy will definitely be the middle name.

  • My daughter before we knew it was a girl we were thinking Cristian Blase if it was a boy and Ashlynn Jade if it was a girl. We ended up naming her Arayna Jade and our son on the way ended up naming him Tristan Cash.

  • DS1 would is Samuel Trevor but would have been Emma Rose. We didn't "keep" Emma, though. Our DD is Talya and we couldn't think of a boy's name for her. DS2 is Rami Shai (awesome gift) because it took so long to have him (5 years in between #2 & 3)
