    Had my mother not been completely set on Grace Elisabeth, I would have been Megan Grace, which is what my dad wanted. My brother was almost John Robert instead of Grant Robert (He wishes they would have named him John), and it would have been Claire if he had been a girl.

    I'm a Laura, and other names my parents considered were Sarah, Jennifer and Claire. I don't like Claire much, though I wouldn't have minded being a Sarah or a Jennifer. My parents only liked popular names for all of us, it seems.

    So interesting to read! Love this thread.
    If I wasn't (don't want to write my real name), I would have been either Oksana, Mary or Natalie/Natalia. Honestly, I wish I was an Oksana or Natalie, Mary is a family name and I don't really like the idea of using the exact name in one family. My name *$$$* is much more popular than Oksana and a bit more popular than Natalie but I go by Victoria/Vicki now so I consider it my real name.

    A further question, at what point did your parents change their mind and did they ever use one of your potential nmes for a younger sibling?

    I'm an Emily - absolutely love it (and would happily use it for a daughter if it wasn't my name - yes despite the popularity!) - I was named pre Emily craze I was 11 before I was in a class with another Emily - and currently don't know another one at uni - there isn't one in my class of 160, or any societies I've been in! I think the world has placed me in a bubble haha!

    My parents would have named me Amelia if our surname was different - but the flow wasn't as good. I know my dad also like Sarah. They decided on my name pretty quickly though I believe.

    My brother named Thomas - was nearly a William - but I could say Thomas but not William (at just two). If he was a boy he would be Sophie - which ironically my mum no longer really likes.

    If there had of been a third child I'm pretty sure he would have been Willem (we lived in the Netherlands at the time) - not idea what they would have named a second girl though - maybe Sophie.
