Did u ever ask one of ur parents if there was another name they were going to give u?

My mother had two named she was going to do. The first was Heather Dawn, then her friend who had a baby before her took the name. The second was Cassandra, then she had a patient named Sandra that she didn't even want part of the name to be. So ended up with It's really funny how things work out.

  • I know that I was supposed to be named Francesca - girl version of my dad's name. Well, he hated that 'cause he hates his name so last minute in the hospital he is doing the birth certificate details and can't think of a name so puts MY MOM's name as my name. GRR...I hate my name! And I hate being named after someone. I'm all about unique and believe me, the problems it causes is not worth the respect it gives the namesake!

  • They didn't have another girl name. But they thought I would be a boy until I was 8-month-old in my mummy's tummy. I think I heard the name and I changed my sex:P They wanted to call me Szilárd (means solid in English).. Mhaw:P

  • My mom and dad flipped a coin. He won. Had my mother won, I would be Sarah, and it would not suit me at all.
