    I was born in 1975, long before the days of gender scans. If I was a boy I was to be called Joel Scott.

    My mom wanted to name me Amanda, but my dad was a fan of a band in the 70's, the Bailey boys or something of that sort and wanted to name me Bailey. They had a vote between the doctor and nurses and they decided on Bailey. Thank goodness, I know way too many Amanda's!!

    Richard or Eleanor :dohh:

    My birth mother told me she preferred Eleanor for a girl to Lynsey, but there was someone famous at the time with that name who was short, and she didn't want me to be short, so I'm named after Lynsey De Paul (Yeah I had to google it too :dohh:)

    Ta mother.

    My mum liked Ross and Alexander for a boy.

    She also liked Kimberley for a girl. My dad was dead set on calling me Claire Doreen (the Doreen is after my aunt who died when my mum was pregnant. My mum hated it though and called me Claire Rebecca Doreen. I've pretty much dropped the Doreen lol.

    I COULD have been Claire Rebecca Alice though and my last name began with a P..........................

    C.R.A.P

    :(

    My dad wanted to call me Sarah, but mum didn't like it. I got nicola instead (just as boring as Sarah IMO - no offense anyone). If I was a boy I would've been Leigh (also not keen!). My dad wanted to call my sister Wanda! But again mum didn't lime it so she got lynsey instead! X
