What names did you pick out for your firstborn that you didn't use?

We had Bayley for a girl and Austin for a boy. We ended up having Austin lol but we called him Bayley for like the first 6 months of my pregnancy. He didn't show us he was a boy until like 3 weeks before my baby shower. Now we have a Bayley though because I got my girl!!

  • We only have 1 boy
    We had Madison picked out for a girl (Madison Rose is the only girl name we chose)
    For a boy though we picked; Preston, Lucas, Logan, Trent, Hunter, & Nathaniel
    We used Landen lol
    Next boy will be Nathaniel most likely unless he comes out not looking like he fits the name because that's what happened with our son we set Preston as the for sure name and when he was born we looked at him and said nope he's not a Preston.

  • Aislynn Rose or Adrienne Reyn. She ended up being Jossalyn Maria, haha.

    If we would have had a boy, he would've been Aidan James. I'm SO glad we have a girl, because Aidan is now one of my most hated names. It's far too popular, ugh.

  • Gabrielle or Gabriella, we ended up going with Lilliana.
    For a boy it would've been Ethan Elijah.

  • We had Preston Hamish for a boy, and then named him Jack Sundance. Then when we went on to have two more boys they are Mark Sundance and Patrick Sundance.
    If we ever have a girl she will be Frances Rose.

  • We talked to "Jeffrey Russell" in my tummy from the time of the sonogram until out came "Claire Marie" ... our second was a girl, too - so we never used "Jeffrey Russell"

  • My son was going to be either Rebecca Rose or Joy Marie if he was a boy. Glad a boy came instead. His name is Daniel Jason, Daniel from the Bible and Jason because it's a more modern name.
