(DD1) Neve would have been Jett.

(DS) Marley would have been Marley (spelling unsure).

(DD2) Mila, we had Kingston, Jagger, & Reed on the list, no idea what we would have settled on.

(DD3) Remi - We had Fox, West, Jagger & Heston on the list. Not sure what we would have agreed on, but I reckon Fox would have possibly been the winner.
