My first name was supposed to be Amanda, but they couldn't think of a middle name they liked with it. So they asked my sister (who was 8 at the time) what to name me, and I became Jennifer Amanda. My parents hadn't seriously thought about boy names (they "knew" I was a girl) but my mom said she liked the name Christopher Michael. Funny thing is I became friends with TONS of people name Chris/Kris. Found that interesting!

I know Margaret was in the running for me as a girl. I think it would have suited me better than Jessica on a lot of levels (I do not dislike Jessica at all, I actively like several features of it, even, but it just has never fully fully "fit").
On the other hand, I wouldn't have cared for Maggie (it is fine, just not for me), and I have grown really fond of Jess, it fits very well. So...I'm happy it worked out as it did.
Had I been a Margaret, I might have gone for Margo as a nn, maybe Greta or Etta or something. Or maybe Mae/May. Maisie is sweet but not me.
Jesse was the top contendor for me as a boy, although I think Lance was batted around as well. Anyway, then Jessica came from Jesse.
