I was almost an Amber too! Or a really convoluted spelling of my actual name.
@crown-of-winterthorne – lol omg so my mom vetoed it after my dad said “I know a stripper that has that name”
Patrick. My parents wanted a boy.
Julie after my mother’s grandmother who she was supposed to be named for but wasn’t but mom lost when dad wanted to name me after a friend who died early in high school due to cancer.
I was almost an Elizabeth, but my mom changed her mind last minute. Eric if I was a boy. xP
Natasha, mum wanted a Russian name, dad wanted African. Dad won, but in exchange mom got to name the other three boys, dad got the middle names, and it shows.
lucy i think ?
If I was a girl it would’ve been Saoirse
I almost had my middle name as my first name and my first name as my last name, but my Grandma convinced my mom to switch them.
Claire. Which is insulting bc I knew a real bitch in like grade 5 who was named Claire
Varda, but that got vetoed because it sounds like the Hindi word for curtains
Fiona. When Shrek came out my dad told me that we’d dodged a bullet.
Alexander if I was a boy. My parents were very creative.
I would have been an entirely different person had they stuck with that name.
If I’d been a boy, I would have been named Luke. Which my cousins were quite excited about and obviously v disappointed that I wasn’t named Princess Leia
