DD is Charlotte Robyn Jeanette. If she was a boy she would have been Bradley George Mark. I can't stand that boys name now though, even though they are all strong family connections.

#22 MrsW87

Posted 11 November 2012 - 08:43 AM

I have

DS1: William John
DS2: Harrison James

If they were girls, DS1: Would have been Evelyn Grace and DS2 Would have been Laila Grace. I realize that grace is really overused, but it is a family name and has been the female middle name for about 7 generations. I wouldn't dare break it

(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.
