What names were your parents tossing around for you before you were born? [name]Do[/name] you like these names?
My dad wanted [name]Sylvia[/name], which I think is okaaay, but [name]Sylvie[/name] is more my taste. [name]Sylvia[/name] still seems a little old-ladyish, though I love its meaning (tree girl). My mom liked [name]Rory[/name]. I have a hard time picturing myself as a [name]Rory[/name]… it doesn’t really fit, but I still really like the name. She also thought about [name]Gabrielle[/name], which is much too trendy for my tastes. I wish it wasn’t; I think it is very pretty. [name]Beryl[/name] (don’t like it at all) was also an option. If I were a boy, I would have been [name]Sam[/name]. [name]Sam[/name] is cute, but [name]Samuel[/name] makes me barf (sorry guys!).
What about you?
