    "Kylie! What sort of a name is Kylie for a Christian person? It sounds like a foreign vegetable!" - Hyacinth Bucket.

    Sorry I just had to post that :haha:

    I'm not sure what I was going to be called. I was born ten weeks early and dad just gave me my name. I think I heard I was named after a television actress.

    David Michael after my uncle who died aged about 6 months if I was a boy.
    My mum can't remember the other 2 names but she put them and Helen on bits of paper and shook them about in her hand and my dad picked out Helen and they added Louise as a middle name

    If I were a boy I would have been Ethan James. They ended up naming my next brother Ethan James anyway so it didn't really matter.
    If I were a girl I was always gonna be Lucy Catherine, or Lucy Kate for short :flower:

    I was going to be Daniel or Gareth if I was a boy.
    For a girls name, my mum wanted me to be called Morgan, pronounced Mor-GAN but my dad hated it, and Im so glad, possibily the only good thing he did for me. So they went for Eleanor instead after my mums best friend. I used to hate it as people can never say or spell it right. Said El-an-na. But pretty much everyone calls me Elle (not Ellie!) now anyway :)

    I was supposed to be called Connor because my local Hospital told my mum that I was a boy! And she had bought everything for a little boy and then I came along with a little vagina and my mum nearly fainted :haha: My name is Chloe-Ann but I just call myself ChloƩ. The Ann part came from my mums name and I honestly hate it! But I don't want to legally change it incase I get older and realise how lovely it is!

    I was always going to be named Katherine! If I had been a boy I would have my oldest brother's name; Michael. I'm not a fan of either name, but I guess that's why I've come to like unique names alot!!

    I heard that the name Anita was being considered for me, but my mom ended up naming me Trena. I've always disliked my name because I feel that its misspelled, and my mom is a terrible speller so that just adds to my resolve.

    Just to throw some more names out there, I have a brother named Eric and a sister named Shaleena... (which I also suspect as being 'misspelled' I think its supposed to be Shalina buuuut whatever) :haha:

    My name is Sara (Welsh way of spelling Sarah pronounce Sera which is Sarah lol) but my mum wanted to name me 'Dione' after her fave singers Celine Dione and Dione Warrick (thank god she didnt, I HATE the name lol) and she decided to let my dad chose the name which was between Debra and Sara and he decided Sara was appropriate as I was his first child and Sara meant Princess in Hebrew :D
