Alright, here we go.

My name is Raven Mika, if I had been a boy I would have been named Jordan Kirby.
For those of you who know, what would YOU have been named if you were the other gender?

(My siblings' names are interesting too.)

Talia Rae (could have been Cannon ?)
Tivoli Mia (could have been Titan Cougar, or Roman ?)
Revel Cougar
Talon Maverick

My name is Victoria Elizabeth.

If I were a boy I would have been Joseph Rives. Joesph is after one of my ancestors from the Civil War era, and Rives is a family name. My parents also thought of William Keaton, after my dad's two best friends (which I personally like a lot better.)

They also considered naming me Lauren Elizabeth or Serena Victoria.

I was named Ashleigh Jade. If I had been a boy I know my first name would have been Jayden. I never asked what my middle name would have been, but maybe after my dad (?) so Jayden Michael or Jayden John. I That's just a guess.

I was very close to being names Melanie Jade, but someone my mum went to school with had a baby a few months before and named their daughter Melanie Jane and they also had the same LN, so that never happened :)

If I were a boy, I was going to be named Andrew or Connor (which they used Connor on my brother).
I dont know about middle names.

Other names for a girl they were considering were Carlee, Olivia, Molly & Alyssa.

Posted 09 March 2011 - 11:03 AM

If I were a boy, I would have been named Kyle Richard (Richard being after my dad lol)

Other names they considered for me: Kaylyn Rose or Cayleigh Grace (Cayleigh pronounced Kay-lay) (not sure where mom got either of those from, but she did like these a lot haha).

My older brother was no doubt a boy, so no girls names were considered. But Nathan Charles is the only they really thought of for him that they've mentioned.

My little brother was either going to be Cayleigh Grace if he was a girl, but happened to be a Joshua Ryan

My little sister, Deena Nicole, could have been a Daniel or a Nico (not sure how mum spelled it lol). Nico would be after her maiden name, which is really close to that haha!


I asked my mum recently if she were to have another baby what it's name would be, and she came up with Liberty Belle "Libby" or Nico (don't remember the middle name she liked for it lol).


Interesting selection, haha!

My name is Katherine Ann (Katherine is after my dad's sister, Ann is after my dad's mother who died before I was born.)

If I was a boy my mom really wanted to name me Daniel, (my mom always loved the name Daniel) but two months before I was born my dad's brother named his son Daniel so I dont know what she would have picked.

Another name my mom considered was Lark Ann, (Lark is after my mom's dad) and she liked the idea of calling me Lark Ann.

My name is Sara Lynn
If I were a boy, I know my mom had Eric picked out, but not sure what the middle name would have been. Probably Donald, since all of my siblings and I have a middle name of our godparents:

My aunt's middle name is Lynn
My sister is Samantha Jean (after her godmother Jean)
and my older brother is James Patrick (after his godfather Patrick).

My name is Shannon Elizabeth.

My mom would of named me James, after her dad who died when she was 19 I think. And I don't know the middle name.
My dad wanted to name me Brett, but my mom didn't like that name (Because my last name starts with a 'B' and she doesn't like the sound of it) I don't know the middle name. Probably James.

If I had been a boy, my mom wanted to name me Jared Tyler and call me Ty or Tyler John.

Other names that my mom and dad considered for me were: Stacy Tyler, Roxanne Paige and Jasmine Claire.

My mom really wanted to use the name Tyler because it was from one of her favorite soap operas or something lmao

My name is Hannah Margaret (Margaret after both of my grandmothers).
If I had been a boy I would have been Matthew (not sure about middle name).

My younger sister is Kimberleigh Jane, and if she had been a boy she would have been called Benedict. They also considered calling her Amber-Leigh, but there was a girl in my class called that, so they decided on Kimberleigh instead.

My other younger sister is called Samantha Katherine, and if she had been a boy she would have been Christopher.

My younger brother is Oliver John O'Neil (O'Neil is his mother's maiden name), and if he had been a girl he would have been either Rebecca or Florence. They also considered naming him Frederick, but decided on Oliver instead.

My baby brother (who was unfortunately stillborn) would have been Edward, but as he didn't make it he got a new special name instead. He is called Papageno, who is the bird caller(?) from The Magic Flute. It's a special name to our family, as my mum (Pamina) also has her first name from that book/play.

The sad thing about my name was my mom was looking through a name book, found a name she liked and said "How bout Eden*?" My dad thought then said "I new a nice girl in 1st grade named that, yeah, lets name her that!" NO BOYS NAMES CONSIDERED! Then, i recently asked my mom, if I were a boy (they didn't find out what I was), what would my name have been. She said: Um, I don't know, Robert Louis III was it I guess, but I would probably have thought of Benjamin, Jason or Jeffery...........

GRRRR! lol
