What would your parents have called you if you were born the opposite sex?

I would have been a Daniel Jack, tennessee whiskey anyone? grin

When I told my mum we'd have called DD that if she were a boy, she said "Boring! That's what we'd have called you." Which was our point. hmm

Ross or Robert.
Parents obsessed with 'R' names.
Younger brother is actually 'Ross' so they didn't change their minds three years later.
Not at all keen on Robert. . .
