I would have five kids. I know, I'm a crazy person. It's not going to happen in real life.

I don't really want four children, but I love the idea of hypothetically naming four children. :)

I'd have 5, not going to happen but nice to think about. I think I would go for 3 girls and 2 boys. I won't actually change any of my current children's names either.

Oh, fun fun.

I've always wanted 17.
Let's see:
Hannah Jane
Peter Sidney III
Elizabeth Susan "Beth" & Rhoda Lucy (twins)
John Ernest "John Ernest" & George Alfred "Geordi" (twins) (or they could all be quadruplets)
Rebecca May & Benjamin Mark "Jamin" (twins, why not?)
Virginia Rose "Ginger"
Vincent James "Vin"
Asa Hezekiah
Judah Nehemiah
Obadiah Jesse "Obi"
Leah Martha
Eden Eve
Daniel Shem
Silas Abraham
Trinity Pearl

That's eighteen, but I guess that's okay--I used up all my names. 8 girls, 10 boys.

We have it. For as long as I can remember I wanted 2 boys and then a girl. When I met DH, had said his dream situation would be two boys and then a girl.
After I had my first boy, I instantly thought I need 2 more of these :).
Three boys would have been my new design, Lewis, of course ;)
