And what were the names that you liked but didn't use?

I don't have a daughter but eldest son would have been Jessica, with Lin or Lynne as a middle name (after mum) and youngest would have been Megan Elizabeth

I liked, but did not use for my dds

Harriet or Holly for dd1
Lucy or Alice for dd2

I still like these names, but name my dds similar and equally lovely names.

Umm guess LOL. She was 18 when I joined MN. She is older now and rather seems to have been a "trend setter" given how much the name is discussed here LOL

DD1 - Elizabeth Frances

DD2 - Eleanor Sophie.

DS was supposed to be another girl according to the scan and we were all set to have Katherine Mary. That didn't quite go to plan. smile

Other names I might have considered, if I had had any more babies, are Miriam and Naomi.
