    Re: What if you had another sibling?

    Me: Ann Leigh (Annie)
    Sister: Margaret Jane (Maggie)

    Imaginary Sister: Frances Bea (Frankie)
    Imaginary Brother: Roy Bernard

    I know for a fact that Roy would have been the name for my sister or I if we had been boys. (I just picked a random family name as a middle.) Frances is the name of a my mother's grandmother. And my mom chose my sister's name because it sounded good with Annie, and I think Frankie fits. Bea is another family name.

    I'm pretty sure my mother's requirements for names were:
    1. Has a cute nickname.
    2. Is a family name.
    3. Goes well with Annie.
    4. Has a one syllable name in there somewhere.

    ME: Lauren Elyse

    BROTHER: Benjamin Alexander "Ben"
    SISTER: Sarah Price

    My mom always said that she wanted to name me Maggie Simone, so I suppose that would be my other girl name. It might have to be Margaret, as none of us have nickname names. For a boy, they never thought of another boy name, but they mentioned that, when deciding my older brother's name, they bounced around Alex (his MN), Ben (his name), Sam, and Max. Because my sister has a name starting with S, I'll pick Max. I can't picture my parents using Maximilian, so we'll have to go with Maxwell. Maxwell James, to honor my dad, might be an option, or Maxwell Joseph, to honor family.

    Re: What if you had another sibling?

    My sibs:
    Zoya & me, Anja

    While it is unlikely that my parents would have wanted another kid, they liked classic Russian names, and I know that my mother always loved the name Anatoly for a boy, but my father didn't. They may have chosen this for another boy. While I'm not sure if they took this into consideration, all of my siblings and I have different first-letters, so they may have chosen something like Dmitri.

    For a girl, its more difficult, because my sisters and I have sort of disconnected names. Anja and Victoria are similar and more common, while Zoya and Nelly (especially Nelly) are a bit different. So, if they went more traditional, they might have ended up with a little Irina. Or, if they wanted something a little more uncommon, maybe Klavdiya or Faina.
