    I was nearly a Jessica, but the other baby being born in the hospital I was born in that day was named Jessica, and it turned my mother off the idea. I actually think Jessica suits me more, but am still glad I wasn't called it.

    My mum wanted to name me Robin or Selma, and in a way I'd wish she had gone with Selma. Nevertheless, I am glad she decided to scrap Robin seeing as it is mainly used on boys here in Denmark. The rest of family wanted me to be named Laura after my great-grandmother, but my mum associated that name so much with her beloved grandmother that she couldn't see me as a Laura at all (she also finds it odd that my little cousin is named Laura).

    My mum wanted to name me Amelia, but since she had chosen my older brothers name, she let my dad choose. I recall them saying that my dad liked Harriet but went with a name he had heard in a horror film, Rowan.

    If I had been a boy I would have been called Richard, I'm not sure if I would have had a middle name, since my brother doesn't, I do but it is a family middle that was passed down the generations.

    I would have been John Moses if I had been a boy.

    John was on some documentation of my great-grandfather's on my dad's sideas one of his names but so have Jules, Julian, and George been found on various things of his, and religiously he was a Judah. So really you'd have had a wealth of options. Not sure if there was a reason they picked John since they always called that great-granddad Jules. I think they just wanted the J and a strong, simple name.

    Moses a family name.

    My brother has the Moses buried among his various middle names, but not the John, as a cousin was born in the intervening time and was named after Jules instead. (With a J name that's neither Jules nor John).
