Did You Have an Almost Name?

December 15, 2010 Linda Rosenkrantz

Question of the week: Was there a different name under consideration for you before you were born?

For me it was Lydia or Laurel, both of which I kinda prefer to Linda.

So, have your parents ever revealed to you the other choices they had discussed?  Was there a whole list, or just one main contender?

Was it a close call?  At what point was the final decision made?  Did your almost name almost make it onto your birth certificate?

Do you think it would have fit you as well—or better?–than the one that won out?
