Ask your parents what your name would have been if you were born as the opposite sex.

My name would have been Faith (dodged a bullet, thank chance* I'm a dude).

Bonus fact: I dated a girl named Christina so if I married her and she changed her last name to mine, we'd be Christian and Christina with the same last name. She goes by her middle name, though, so it would have only looked that way on paper.

That's actually a pretty good question, I might text my mom randomly tomorrow and ask her. I know I was close to being named Benjamin which would've been a dece name but so is my actual name so w/e

Tomorrow's no good to ask her about names, she'll be too busy moaning and screaming mine all day.

Not my best work.

Montse. It's a common girl's name in my family.

As in Monsterrat?

They had a whole list of boy names picked out but none for girls because they didn't think I would be a girl but here I am lol.

Navin
Arman
Xerxes
Angad
Farukh
Laxman


edit: fun fact they didn't even name me. I was born 2 and a bit months prematurely because my mom had some medical issues and they had to deliver me in order to prevent them from getting any worse. So she was unconscious for a while and my dad was in a different state for work, and my aunt named me after a name that was common in the city my grandpa was working in. She did it on purpose because she knew my mom would've wanted to name me after her best friend but my aunt wanted to name her future daughter that. And she did!

Lara.


That's a cool name, but probably makes everyone jump right to thinking "Lara Croft." I had a classmate in HIST 105 called Lara, and she says she always gets references to Lara Croft.

Imagine sharing a name with a famous person. Nobody would think you're serious. Every conversation would be like:

"Hey, nice to meet you. What's your name?"
"I'm Jimmy."
"Jimmy..."
"Jimmy Hendricks."
"Very funny, asshole. What's your real name?"

Shit sounds tiresome. Why would you name your kid Tony Hawk? And remember that Taco Bell commercial with a bunch of people called Ronald McDonald (reference to Mac's real name from the high school reunion episode)?

Why yes

That's interesting that the choices were either a popular name in English-speaking countries or named after a city in Spain (by the way, my surname is a city in Spain. Twinz!!!!)

Arman
Xerxes
Laxman

I knew a guy called Arman. Xerxes makes me think of the guy from Greek history. Laxman makes me think of a dudebro jock's username on Bodybuilding.com or something.

Yeah, like, when I was born Tomb Raider wasn't a thing, and I doubt my parents would even know who Lara Croft was up until those movies with Angelina Jolie were released, but that's exactly what I always think.

And I like my own name, so, things worked out for the best

Even more fun fact: my name is supposed to have an H in it (for a "dh" sound) but they forgot to put it on the birth certificate (so it's just a /d/) so when I meet indian ppl they always spell my name wrong because they think it's supposed to have an H in it


^ no, but one of my middle school bullies was named Xerxes lol. He wasn't terrifying just loud and annoying and rude.

You can have the H in my name. I don't need it.

I'd actually never ask my parents this as my sister was born 2 years before me and she didn't make it, so I'd actually really rather not ask them.

However I have high hopes it would have been Maria, after my grandmother.

EDIT: ^ A woman named Nathan? your parents were progressive in the child naming department.

I don't know I'll have to ask my mom next time I see her. I do know that my dad wanted to name me Bruce, and my mom said no.

I don't think my parents got that far. Apparently my name was supposed to be Bronson all the way up until I was born, then my parents were like nah.

Apparently I was meant to be Melissa if I was a girl......

No idea.

I know that I was close to being called Clark after Clark Gable because my last name is similar. My mum was like no way though haha and thankfully I have an even more eccentric and unique name that confuses the hell out of everyone I meet.

Xerxes is one helluva name though.

In high school, I dated this girl that had the same last name as me.
We got a lot of ribbing from other students.

I have the sneaking suspicion it would've been something very quaintly irish, like Aoife or Claire.

If I had to choose though, I've actually no idea.
