    I was going to be called Charlie, but apparently my nana argued with my mum that they couldn't call me that because its a boys name! So instead they named me Jay Charlie which is just as much a boys name in my eyes! :dohh::shrug:

    Mom wanted Margaret Mary Joan, call me Maggie Mae! My dad liked Miranda though, so I got Miranda Margaret.

    If I had been a boy, I would have been David William :thumbup: that's my dad's name, would have been a II, then called Will or D.W.

    Interestingly enough, my younger brother (born 2 years later) did not turn out to be a D.W. at all, but is instead Damon Joseph!

    I was supposed to be Bobby/Bobbie either way. Except that my Dad's name is Robert and we all call him Bob and my cousin who's 2 months older than me got called Robert and we all call him Bobby. Needless to say my Mom kiboshed that and named me after a rich snob on a soap opera, Cassandra.

    My parents were dead-set that I was a boy. And my name was Christopher Michael. Too bad I ended up being a Holly Elizabeth. :)

    I was supposed to be Lindley Sarah but my mom decided last minute to call me Seanna(Sienna) Alexandria and if I was a boy I was supposed to be Samuel William. Both of my sisters names were changed after birth though..one even has a couple of things with the wrong monogram. They were supposed to be Emily Danielle and Sadie Mae but ended up as Olivia Grace and Layla Brooke.
