I'm Judith Ann (Judith for a character in my mother's favorite book, and Ann in honor of my grandmother), and if I hadn't been named Judith, my name would have been Barbara, just because my mother liked the name. If I had been a boy, I would have been either Gregory or Byron (Byron for Boris, my grandfather, and Gregory because my parents liked the name).

I'm Kaitlin because at the time I was born pretty much every birth was a surprise, and before I was due my dad dreamed my mom had a baby girl with lots of dark hair and named her Caitlin... but my mom decided she liked it with a K better because our last name also starts with K. And when I was born I was indeed a girl (lol) and I had lots of dark hair, so that became my name. Other girls names they tossed around were Rebekah, Hannah, Phoebe, and Lydia. The only one of those I don't like is Rebekah, not that there's anything wrong with it, I'm just not a big fan.
If I was a boy I would mostly likely have been Patrick David Dodge (the D_____ Dodge mn is a tradition for boys on my dad's side), which was their compromise name, but my mom really would have preferred Connor David Dodge or Collin David Dodge. I would much rather be named Connor than either of those.the ever-changing favorites:
♥ August, Barnaby, Henry, Luther
♥ Mabel, Leona, Florence, Zelda

My parents considered the names Katherine and Adriana for me before I was born, my dad thought Adriana sounded 'too Italian' lol and my parents weren't a 100% in love with Katherine. They eventually decided on Andrea Renee, Andrea is a name my mom loved since high school. If I was a boy my name was going to be Christopher Thomas, Thomas after my dad.

Apparently Mom wanted to name me Dorothy after my grandmother, and nn me DeeDee. Dad said no and I am ever so grateful. Dorothy is just NOW showing signs of life as a usable name again: I can't imagine growing up with it in the 1980's, let alone with that awful nn. It would have been like wearing Grandma's polyester pants everywhere.
They went with Sarah not knowing it was a Top 5 name. Whenever I got annoyed that my name was so common I just reminded myself that I could have been DeeDee the Dork instead.
It's a girl coming in March!
Dulcinea Liberty Lanz nn "Daisy"
