Default If you had been born the opposite sex, what would you have been named?

To the best of your knowledge, of course.

I saw this thread from like two years ago and I was like "Wowwww how did this not survive". I do hope it's okay if I bring this back, I found it quite interesting.

I, like my brothers before me, would have been called Bethany. *shudder*

He saw himself as alive... and I saw him dead.

Apparently, Jacob or *shudder* Eustace were both considered.

Either Callum or Connor. My parents were determined to give me the same initials as my dad, no matter what my gender was.

Brook(e), I think. :P I think it's a nice name.

But then my parents couldn't decide on a name for a while anyway and Mom threatened to name me Dexter if they couldn't agree. >:O

...I would apparently have been called Peter.

My brain just broke. x3 I can't imagine myself as a Peter... it's weird. Yeah, I've never asked or even considered this before. x3

Sebastian. Or Gabriel. Admittedly I probably wouldn't have had such a problem with Gabriel but SEBASTIAN.

which is funny because I was in the car with my mom talking about how me and my friends were working on an extensive musical project and one of our characters would be gay. We had (in fact, are still having) immense trouble agreeing on a name for this character, oscillating around between Fabio, Craig, Leslie, Kurt, and, of course, Sebastian. I was opposed to Sebastian and, as I said to my mom, "But who names their kid Sebastian? I mean, seriously, naming a kid something like that is pretty much predicting they will be gay. I don't know how that makes much sense, but it does. But really, there's no future for a kid named Sebastian other than being gay..." and she says "When I was pregnant with you, if you had been male, we were considering Sebastian." and I was like "... of course you were."

(if naming a kid Sebastian is predicting gayness... well, I'm bi, so. :V)

Default Re: If you had been born the opposite gender, what would you have been named?

I have no clue. My mom always said that she would would have Caitlin Elise *my last name*, Ryan Micheal *my last name*, and Rebecca *middle name I don't have* *my last name*. The only difference in any of my siblings or my own names is the fact my mom changed my planned middle name to Joy to honor my (still living, both then ans now) great-grandmother. She was positive when she was pregnant with me that I'd be female.

Sometimes I do wonder what would've happened if Caitlin or I popped out male, Ryan popped out female, or any of us were transsexuals.

Hey! I can kinda understand where you're coming from with Barbara, but Janine's a very pretty name!

(well, actually, for full prettyness it needs to be spelled "Jeanine." looks so awkward without that "e" D: [/bias])

It's a bit of a rubbish name, you're not missing much.

Apparently my parents 'knew' I was going to be a girl and settled on Danielle pretty quickly without really considering any boy names for me.

Then when my mum was pregnant again three years later, I was utterly insistant that it would be a girl and apparently they thought so too because they picked some girl names for her (and settled on Gabrielle to which I say, really, parents? Rhyming names???) without really talking about boy names.
