    Ugh same here. I can totally see us being at the hospital still arguing over boy names. We do agree on the next girl name so I guess that’s something!

    We were much more solid on boy names so of course we had a girl. If we have another I almost want a boy just so we can use one of those names.

    I like Cole. Also, Cade. But Nathan is one of my favorite names.

    It's a good thing I was a girl because the only names my dad liked were John Milton Lastname (Milton is a family name but...we're Catholic...weird name for a Catholic baby) or Andre Dawson Lastname (baseball lol).

    My mom once said I would have been Cory or Colby. (Both okay names that nobody uses anymore, btw.) They didn’t put too much thought into boy names, though. They were convinced I was a girl pretty much the moment the stick turned pink.

    My if I had been a boy name was Ryan Reynolds (family name) Lastname.

    Benjamin was my parents’ second option for a boy but my mom wasn’t sold. My name was their only option for a girl (I’m named after someone) so they were lucky they never tried for a third.

    I would've been Aaron had I been a boy. I'm glad I was born a girl

    Is Aaron a particularly offensive name?

    My parents weren’t organized enough to pick out a name for me if I had been a boy. My sister (oldest) would have been Trevor, but then they gave my brother (middle) a completely different name.

    I think Aaron is a totally fine name. I like it more than a lot of the trendy names that end with n. And I actually really like Erin, but not with our last name.

    My parents picked Jesse for me if I was a boy.

    my middle name would have been Isenhour and my mom was gonna call me Ike :sick:

    Nah, I just don't care for it, mostly the spelling. Erin is complete fine.

    Turns out my dad had no idea my or my sister's middle name would have been the same as his and he doesn't like his middle name. It's a very normal name.

    I was going to be Sarah Elizabeth nn Sarabeth but my dad couldn’t say it due to a stutter. There was no boy name as far as I know.

    Erin is the typically female version, while Aaron is the male version.

    I would have been Daniel Thomas (last name). I actually like Daniel, but that’s the name of one of my exes, so not a name I would ever use for our baby.

    TG and I have a much easier time with girls names than boys names.

    I also like Miles. It was on my SIL's short list for my nephew but they went with something else. Felix was also high on that list and I like it too.

    What about Cameron for a C name? It's pretty versatile.

    I was going to be a Samantha until my grandma's neighbors used that name for their daughter. No idea on what boy name they would have used, Elmer is a family name so hopefully not that.

    I would have been Andrew John - AJ for short. C-rex would have been Morgan Parker (last name)... Parker is the same middle name he has (which is a family name on my mom's side).

    The middle name I would pick now to go with Morgan would be Liana... my moms middle name is Linn and Rooster's mom is Ann.

    I always loved that it was going to be Parker either way!

    My first name would have either been C's middle name (my mother's maiden name) or... Hart.

    I know! It was my grandmother's maiden name :shrug: Thankfully I was named after my great-grandmother instead so it all worked out.

    My dad wanted to name me Daphne. I am so glad my mom prevailed.

    If my parents picked out a boy name they never mentioned to me what it was. My dad did want to name me Carol Ann after the girl in Poltergeist (one of his favorite movies) but my mom vetoed that.

    My parents almost named my brother Loyal. My mom named me after a work friend who apparently wasn't really that close because turns out it was her last name not her first and they didn't know it was commonly used for boys :lol:

    My kids are Chase Everett and Camille Joy. Cam's name would have been Ryan if she was a boy. I have no idea what girl name C and his ex (or probably just his ex since he was out to sea with the Navy at the time) had picked out for Chase.
