Mine would've been Mary-Elizabeth for DS1, Harriet for DS2 and Christabel for DS3, although I hate Christabel now!!! No offence to any DM's of Christabel's!

I love both Harriet (wanted it for dd2) AND Christabel but dp hated both of them!

DD1 would have been Laurence (Laurie) Asher
DD2 would have been Rowan Asher

We chose boys' names really quickly and disagreed all the way through re girls' names!

Had DD been born a boy she was to be called Oliver Joseph.

Ds would have been Lola
Dd1 would have been Felix or Casper
DD2 would have been Evan

Don't like any of them now.

I've got two DD's and would have called them Joseph James if they had been a boy.

Never thought of a second boys name, never needed to!

Ds would have been Toni Michelle if he had been a girl. I don't like the name much anymore. Don't dislike it, but it's not what I would choose now.

DD would have been Oisin.

DS would have been Daisy, which i don't like now

DS would have been Zoe Isabelle. I was so certain I was having a boy so didn't put much thought into it.

Interesting question.

Older daughter would have been Nanthaniel and younger daughter Nicholas or Alexander

I have 3dds, had they been ds' they would have been Leo, Dominic and Noah.

Ds1 would have been Rhea
Ds2 would have been Rhea or Erin
Dd would have been Callum (not my favourite, I preferred Oscar or Ethan but dh didn't like either and Callum was the only name we could agree on).

DS would have been Julia Elizabeth.

memphis83 Sun 26-Jun-11 22:06:27

DS was going to be Eden Freya, but now like Dylan for a girl if I have one at some point

Janoschi Sun 26-Jun-11 22:08:20

DD would probably have been the same - Robin. But Robin Walter instead of Robin Deborah.

Pumpster Sun 26-Jun-11 22:09:45

Daniel, Eloise, Jude and Aiden are my alternative children!

doodledaisy Sun 26-Jun-11 22:09:57

dd1 was going to be Gregory and dd2 would have been Hunter or Wilson. What was I thinking?!

peeriebear Sun 26-Jun-11 22:10:10

DD1 would have been Rory
DD2 Theo

Chynah Sun 26-Jun-11 22:12:07

I never considered that DS would have been anything else but DS so we never chose a DD name!

DD would have been Alexander but she is Alessandra.

amothersplaceisinthewrong Sun 26-Jun-11 22:14:25

My DD Elizabeth would have been James

DS (8) would have been Daisy. had DD been a boy a think I would have been a single parent (again), such was mine and DPs hatred of each others chosen names. I think she may have been Arthur or I may have managed Herbie when it all went tits up and EMCSesque he was so shit scared he would have agred to anything! grin

graciousenid Sun 26-Jun-11 22:21:25

#1 would've been Freddie, #2 Catherine, #3 Idris, #4 Rose ... we always found girls names much easier than boys.

IWillCountToThree Sun 26-Jun-11 22:25:51

DD1 - Jay Anthony
DD2 - Joseph Anthony
DS - didn't even suit the boys name we had picked out! If he'd have been DD3 he would have been Lara Faith.
