The ‘Almosts’

There were a lot of names we threw around before deciding on “Adelaide”. As a little girl I was constantly writing down baby names in a journal. It hasn’t stopped since I’ve become an adult. It’s funny how “Emmalyn” was never on my “baby name list” growing up. I actually thought I would name my first girl, Halle, and calling her “Hal”. (I was slightly obsessed with Lindsay Lohan’s version of The Parent Trap.) Emmalyn was ‘almost’ Olivia, a name I completely adored, but was too popular for us at the time. Also, I find it interesting that none of Emmalyn’s ‘almosts’ showed up on Adelaide’s potential name list. It’s funny how things change.

 Here are a few of the top contenders that, while I love, didn’t quite make the cut. Maybe next time…? 😉
– Charlotte/”Charlie” {this was acutually her name for a couple of weeks until we decided it was becoming too popular}
– Fallon
– Maclaine
– Mackenzie
– Harper
– Teagan
– Tallulah {okay, so only I liked this name, but it was still on my list}
– Avery
– Stella
– Quinn {it became a middle name!}
– Addison
– Taylor
– Cordelia
– Scout
– Hayden
– Amelia
– Claire
 
I’m still very fond of all of the above names, but I can’t imagine Adelaide being anything other than “Adelaide”.
 
What names did you ‘almost’ name your child or children? What was the reason you didn’t?
