I have two alternate sets of seven I watched [name_f]Nanny[/name_f] [name_m]McPhee[/name_m] when I was younger, and even with all those terrible, misbehaving, mischievous kids I thought, “[name_u]Seven[/name_u]! That’s perfect!” Lol, and it hasn’t changed since.

It’s funny how we have a set number from when we are young, and that never really seems to change. :slight_smile: My parents had four kids, and while I loved having the “big” family I have, I always wanted just one more. I thought five would be the perfect number. I still do. I would love to have five kids. I don’t know if I could handle five kids, haha, I guess we’ll see once I’m actually a parent. But regardless, I want a big family!

My perfect family would be:

[name_f]Isabelle[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] “[name_f]Bella[/name_f]”
[name_f]Arianne[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] “[name_u]Ari[/name_u]”
[name_m]Caleb[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m] “[name_u]Cal[/name_u]/[name_m]Caleb[/name_m]”
[name_f]Olivia[/name_f] [name_f]Wren[/name_f] [name_f]Camille[/name_f] “[name_f]Liv[/name_f]/[name_f]Olive[/name_f]”
[name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] [name_m]Charles[/name_m] “Ev”

If I had a sixth, hopefully she would be [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

If money, time, and my SO’s opinions weren’t factors, I’d have six - three boys and three girls. In reality, though, I want three or four, and I’ll probably only use family names as middles, because there are a lot of people I want to honor.

[name_m]Harlan[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_m]Casper[/name_m] [name_m]Quentin[/name_m]
[name_m]Wyatt[/name_m] [name_m]Peter[/name_m]
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] [name_u]Winter[/name_u]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Olive[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] [name_f]Nadine[/name_f]

I’d also really love to have three girls named [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] [name_u]Jean[/name_u], [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] [name_f]Anne[/name_f] and [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Ruth[/name_f], but I don’t imagine myself actually doing that in real life.
