  • You are sooooo not a Brenda! Lol

    My dad told me there was no question for my name because he said the most beautiful baby had to have the most beautiful name. Isn't that sweet?

  • I don't think I was almost named anything different. My parents named me after the parish they were going to when I was born and my mother has always loved my middle name (Joseph), so if they did have alternative names for me, it would have just been a quick and fleeting thought.

  • Apparently my Dad knew for sure I would be a boy. Also my great-great uncle knew my mom was pregnant with me before she knew herself and marked me at birth because I looked a lot like him when I was born. So I was destined to be named after my Dad, but he did wanna give me a second middle name after the uncle who passed away before I was born, but that didn't happen because that's not a part of my dad's name.

  • The way my parents tell it, they had one boy name and one girl name picked out months before I was born. I think they told me what the girl name would have been, but I don't remember it.

  • Lol, I like the name Brenda.
    I was almost named Brianna, Catherine, and Sophia.
    But then my uncle came before the day I was born and told my mom to name me Beretta. (no joke, no lie, you wouldn't have been able to fuck with me, haha). But thank heavens she waved him off.
    Tbh, I kinda wish she would have picked Sophia.. then Catherine because they're very classic and Sophia is just beauts <3 top pick for my daughter.

    My middle name was legit Star on paper, then my dad RAN to the nursery last minute and changed it. I like the new better.

  • My parents didn't make a list of names to name me. My mum went to a graveyard once when she was pregnant and saw my name on a grave stone and thought "this is going to be the name of my baby".

    Meanwhileeee... My brother is named after an angel. 😐 Thanks mum. 😬

  • My dad wanted to name me Cassandra but my mother vetoed that because she said "I am not naming our daughter after your first car!"

    But apparently naming me after the tour guide from the trip on which I was conceived was okay.

    • I can see you being a Cassandra 😁

    • I knew a Cassandra and she was the biggest dumbest bitch so I'm going to try to take that as a compliment and not an insult.

  • Anita or Ana.
    Or some other saints name because my parents are super Catholic lol

    I much prefer Delia because Ana is pretty common and Anita is too old school now haha.
