if you had been born a boy?

My parents would have called me Boris, after my great grandfather. My middle name would have been Lee, same as it is now, because it's a family name.

My father would have been Madeleine if he had been a girl.

You would think that my name would still be Kyle if I'd been a boy, but that's actually not the case. My parents only liked the name for a girl. I would have been Kory, which was what my little brother ended up with. People used to tell us we should switch names because his sounded passable for a girl and mine was for a boy.

I would have been James, my mom said that was the only name she liked for a boy so she was glad that she had 2 girls!

I would have been Roberto, which ended up being my brother's name. It's a big family name.

Maybe Glen, from my dad's middle name. My dad's first name was already taken by a cousin, so I wouldn't have been a junior. And the male form of my planned middle name was taken, too!

I would have been David Wayne, Jr. Which happens to be my brother's name, lol. I'm the first born... if I was a boy I would have the name my brother has now. My brother likely would have been Douglas (which is my baby brother's name). Trent also would have been a possibility.

Coincidentally I asked my mom this recently and she couldn't remember, which is odd considering she thought she was having a boy up until the moment I was born. Thomas is a possibility since that is my little brother's name and my dad was very adament about having a boy named Thomas since he said our family had one in every generation.

My mom never picked out a boys name. She was positive I was a girl from the beginning. She said she KNOWS I am having a girl too. But I am still trying to find a boys name! I find out on the 16th!!

I dont know what I would have been had I been a boy.. all I know is my mother miscarried twice, once before me and my sister, and once after my sister and before me. They were boys and I know one was going to be Grayson.. I think the other was Blaise but Im not positive.
