  • My youngest daughter is named Nora Glenn. She is named after my mom's older sister, Nora, and my mom, Glenna. My mom died in 2000 at the age of 51 and a long time ago asked if I would name one of my children after her because she was named after her grandfather, Glen. So I did it. My Aunt Nora was my mom's best friend and was devastated when my mom died. She also told me once she hated her name because it was plain and boring. But I think her name is beautiful. She said she cried when she got the announcement and saw what I had named the baby.
    My son's middle name is Patrick which is my husband's first name and was his dad's first name.

  • My son was given his first name by his birthmother and were able to choose his middle name. We were expecting a girl and did not have a boy's name. So I picked a name of the cutest boy I knew at the school I worked at. And that is how my child ended up with his name.

  • My fiance insisted our son had his grandfather's first name as his middle name. I've always felt that kids deserve their own name because they are different people and have their own shoes to fill and life to live, so we don't do Jr.

  • My first two childer are named after dad and gram with same names. My sister had a girl and named her after my hubbys mother. When my third child was born I gave her just the same initails and my sister was like WHo is she named after. Kinda rudely but I like the fact that her initials are all one letter!
