I remember when I was a little girl I had all of my kid names picked out, but they're all completely different now. I was interested in hearing some others' old choices and new. Feel free to give your reasons for changing if you like!

My dolls that I named, recently retrieved for my daughter:
Sari, Jon (I didn't like Jon then, I guess he just looked like one), Dan & Jan (I just wanted them to rhyme), Abitha nn Abby, Lillian nn Lilly.

Other names I liked, as a teen:
Damia, Raye, Toni, Lex/Lexa/Lexi, Vik, horrible masses of Ks, Ls, and Ys that I made up (Krystyllynn would be a less Kriyatyvv example).

I LOVED Emma, Samantha, Elizabeth w/ nn Ellie (named my Cabbage Patch Kid this :0), Bethany w/ nn Beth (loved Beth because of Little Women), and Megan.


I actually have An Elizabeth "Ellie", and a Bethany "Beth" :0) Emma and Samantha have become way to popular. DH vetos Megan every time.


I LOVEd Hiram because of Dr. Hiram Baker from Little House on the Prairie. I lucked out when I married someone whose grandfather was Hyrum, so I got to use that one too! I also love Luke, Caleb, and Micah, but DH doesn't like them too well.
