I was either Lucy or Sally before I was born. Lucy or Sally wasn't a good enough male name I guess.

Basil!?! Then his middle name could've been Herb!

My mom wanted to name me Melody because she likes music, but my dad talked her out of (and I'm glad). He didn't want people calling me Mel.

Well, if I were a boy I was going to be Peter. ack! Sorry to all the Peter's out there...

As a girl, they wanted to call me Krista, but then their good friends had a girl first and called her Krista, so they didn't want to be copycats. Instead, they didn't have a name for me... until the day, or a few days before I was born. Turned out I was named after a bowl. lmao! They still have it.

My Mom and father actually got into a argument over which name I was going to be! Dear lord! My dad INSISTED on me being called Carmen! And till the day I was born MOM was ok with it. But then my mom got "mad" at the last minute... I dunno why LOL and said she named me what ever popped into her head first! And my dad got mad! LOL BLAH! I'm glad my mom did that! I just don't know about being called "Carmen" no offense to other Carmen's out there!

If I was a boy I was going to be named William... ugh, but no offense to any Williams in the world

My Dad wanted to name me Katherine, but my mom didn't. But she had no other ideas, so she agree, as long as I was never called Kathy (I am completely supportive of that). So you can call me Katie, Kate, Kat, Kitty, even Bitch for all I care as long as you don't call me Kathy.

I have no idea what name my parents had lined up for me if I was gonna be a girl, and as far as I know Adam was the only name they had going for a boy, so Adam it was/is.

My mom claims that she considered Hermione. My dad denies that this was ever a possibility. I'm honestly not sure if she's serious or not. I don't know what boy names, if any, they were considering.

My mother wanted to name me Maura ... but my father wouldnt hear of it, so it's my middle name instead. Other consideration, Bridget, Colleen, and Siobhaun.

Had I been a boy, I would have been Kevin.
