I was almost named Portia. It’s my mother’s favorite girl’s name. If not that I was actually going to be named Evan, which I would have loved. Unfortunately my parents couldn’t agree, so my father’s name won out in the end. I still think my mother should have rallied harder for Evan.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:Clydemnestra. They only changed their minds when they realized I might get called Clit for short.   No. I. Am. Not. Joking.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: I tried to reply to this a few minutes ago, but it ate my post. πŸ™ Mostly I had said that I actually laughed out loud at that one…”Tangerine”. Love it… Don’t get me wrong…. It is a great song and all…but yeah. Lol

Echo (which no offense to anyone, I am so glad did not end up being my name, it really does not suit me) was my moms first choice, and Sky was her next, I’m not sure what changed their mind, but those two names seem like they would have opened me up for a lot of ridicule as a child. Instead I have another name that is more normal, but wasn’t popular at the time, I am satisfied with their choice, although to be honest as I child I wanted a different name, I guess its just hard for parents to please everyone Smile

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: When I read the title (other that laughing) I pictured Friends episode when Rachel and Ross are discussing baby names and Rachel says Rain: “Hi I’m Rain, I live under a bridge and my skirt is made out of wheat”

I must say I know a girl named rain (but in spanish) and she’s not weird at all. I also know a girl names Cesaria (You know… C-section in spanish?), that must be considered child cruelty.

As far as I know, my name was the only one in the running. I mean, by the third girl my mom had already used up her other ideas. πŸ˜› I like my name though (although not all the variations of it).

My mom really wanted to name me Angela, then her brother named his daughter that. Then she wanted Aubrey or Amy, and my dad vetoed. So now I’m Rebecca. I like all those names but I also like my name, so I would be fine whatever they had decided πŸ™‚

If I were a boy I would’ve been Anthony. I don’t love the name but I would’ve been pretty safe from ridicule πŸ˜›

@galloway111: That’s the reason why I’m keeping my future children’s name a secret from everyone other than Fiance (yes I’ve picked tha names already). I’ve heard all kinds of stories from moms who tell their planned names and someone else “steals” them.

My parents wanted to name me Lanie, which is a cool name, but when paired with my last name, made me sound like a stripper!! 

So they went with Lauren instead.  I’m greatful πŸ™‚

@Coffee cup: Well, her brother is 10 years older than her, so she was only a teenager then and she hadn’t actually ever told them. It was completely coincidence, sadly. I have no siblings and I have so many cousins that if I avoided all their names and their kids’ names I’d be left with very few options, lol. But yeah, I hate when people completely steal a name on purpose πŸ™

My mom wanted to name me Tabatha (yes no I) But my grandma Vetoed that idea because I might be called Tabby cat. So instead my mom named me after my uncles stripper ex girlfriend… I think my mom might be the only person to be crazy enough to name her kid after a stripper lol…

My parents were hoping for a boy… So I would’ve been named my father’s name the 3rd.
