What did you almost name your kids?

When I found out I was having twins I told everyone their names were going to be oops and uh-oh. Then it went to Charlotte and Cassidy. Ended up with Anna and Cassondra.

What did you want to name your kids, and what did you?

  • I was going to name my son Corbet Cash and call him "Corby". However, my grandmother stated that she was calling him "Cash" no matter what since she loved that name. So we just reversed his name and he is Cash Corbet.

    Sidenote........the name "Cash" was decided upon by my husband after I spent weeks in the hospital with Hyperemisis Gravidarum (extreme morning sickness)....LOL! He was paying hospital bills and stated....."We should name this kid "Cash" he is costing enough of it!"

  • I named my first son what I wanted to name him, Ethan Thomas. My ex husband wanted to name our second son Banner. I knew that his middle name was going to be Wayne. We finally agreed on Logan. When I was pregnang with my daughter, me and my fiance, now husband, had a few names picked. I picked her middle name Marie. I liked Annie and Grace. He liked Audrey or Aubrey. He finally decided on Brooke. And wouldnt you know that after she was born he wanted to change her name to Megan lol.

  • it was a toss up between Mason Ernest Walter (ernest his grandpa walter my grandpa) and Landon Michael. We did Mason. I'm not crazy over the middle names but i wanted to be strong and mean something and these are two of the strongest men we know. my granny and papaw ALWAYS had me when i was younger and i looked at my papaw like my dad. If we have another boy someday it will probably be Landon Michael (my dads name is Michael)

  • I wanted to name my daughter brynn nicole or bryce nicole but my hubby didnt like either one so we ended up naming her Brianna Lynn. If my son had been a girl we would have named him Dixie Faith.
