I am the only child that my mom named. She let my grandmother (my dad's mom) name both of my older sisters.

Their names are Michelle Lee and Leanne Marie. I like Michelle & Leanne together, but I think their full names are too close. Their initials are flip-flopped, and my oldest sister's middle name is the same as the beginning of my other's sister's first name.

And I ended up being Erica Beth.....




Who named you? Do you know what your name would have been if you were the opposite sex?

My mom named me. She just asked my dad whether he hated it.

She didn't have a name chosen for a boy. I MIGHT have been David, Jr. But that's unlikely, since my aunt had just had a boy and named him David without considering that there would be TWO David Frelich's. Let alone asking whether they'd wanted to name a son David, Jr.

I would more likely have been James, after my grandfather, since he had died the year before I was born.

Well my parents couldn't agree, they were tossing up Karissa and Marissa for hours after i was born Finally they decided to bite the bullet and name me Marissa. My dad chose my middle name.

Both of my parents did. My mom liked Jessica and Jocelyn, but my dad didn't like Jocelyn, so Jessica it is!

If I was a boy, my name would've been Jeffrey.

My dad named my older sister, and my mom named me (Rebecca because she liked the name and Jacklynn, Jack after my grand-father, her dad and Lynn after her). I don't know what they would've named me had I been of the opposite sex but I know they were also considering the name Mallory...

My Dad named all four of us. My Mom wanted to name me Jessica and my Dad wanted Jennifer so I'm Jennifer Ann--very original for the late 70's.

If I was a boy I would have had my little brother's name--Joseph Francis.

My name would have been Tyler Joseph Robert if I was a boy .

Tyler because they liked it , Joseph after my dad's dad and Robert after my dad (it's his middle name)


My sister is Alyssa Victoria . Her name would have been the same as mine if she was a boy

Both of my parents..

I would have been Eric if I was a boy. (after Eric Clapton, HAHA). By the time my brother was born 4 years later, there were a TON of Eric's, so they named him Derek!

Not sure if they had a boy name picked out.

They waited till I was born to start coming up with names. My mom did nothing in the whole process for the most part.

My dad wanted Elizabeth Ann or Ann Elizabeth - mom said no way
So he chose Kirstin - and again NO WAY
Guess he got fed up and said Kristin - and that is how I got my name

My mom is Cristi Lee - and I got stuck with the same middle name.....

Not very original

And my dad is still pushing for Elizabeth Ann or Ann Elizabeth and he will accept Isabelle as well if I have a girl, but once again he got told NOPE LOL!!!!
