What was your son's "almost name?"

What did you name your son and what was his “almost name”? [name_m]Or[/name_m] another name from your list?

Our first son is [name_m]Rory[/name_m] [name_m]Donald[/name_m].
The first name we considered was [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_m]Ray[/name_m]. We also loved [name_m]Grady[/name_m]. And the final contender with [name_m]Rory[/name_m] was [name_m]Nolan[/name_m].

Our second son became [name_m]Nolan[/name_m] [name_m]George[/name_m].

If we had another, I’d call him [name_m]Cal[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m].

I didn’t have a son, but my brother was almost [name_m]Ryan[/name_m], and my husband was almost [name_m]Simon[/name_m].

We ended up going with [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] [name_m]Callum[/name_m], but he was almost [name_f]Vale[/name_f] [name_m]Callum[/name_m].

If I ever have another boy, he’ll be [name_f]Vale[/name_f] for sure . . . but I’ll have to find a new bird-related middle I love!

[name_f]My[/name_f] son’s name is [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] [name_m]Caleb[/name_m]. He was going to be [name_m]George[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m], but then we went with first [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] and then [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m].

If I’d had another son, he’d have been [name_m]George[/name_m] [name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m].

I tried to get my husband to switch his name to [name_m]Caiden[/name_m] [name_m]James[/name_m], instead of naming our son after himself
He said [name_m]Kaiden[/name_m] [name_m]James[/name_m] sounds cool for second kid, but that’s already off the table for me lmao

So he got to name our first son [name_m]James[/name_m] “Jaime” [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] and for the next son I can name him whatever I like with no influence from him
