QotD: Also Known As

What other names did your parents consider for you?

If I had been a boy, I would have been called Harry, or Henry. There was this deal: the first born would be named after the maternal grandmother (for a girl) or the paternal grandfather (for a boy). The second born would have been named after the paternal grandmother if female, the maternal grandfather if male. Of course, by the time my brother was born, there was no such system in place anymore. Otherwise he would have been called Adrie, Adriaan, or something similar.
