  • We just picked names we liked. The names all starting with the same letter annoys me, I'm actually kind of annoyed with myself that my first and third son's have the same first letter. The kids first names are just names we liked and their middle names are family significant.

  • First was after my g-ma, XH picked random middle name.
    Second, I wanted the middle name after my other g-ma, so he picked the random first name.
    Turns out, they both end in N. If I have more, I will keep that going.

  • My daughters name is Hope, we love it. I was going to name my other DD Grace, but we went with Emily instead. All my children's names have some personal, or familial significance.

  • Nope, we just chose names we liked...they all go together, though. Meagan, Owen, Brenna and Nora. We're (well my husband and the kids anyway) are Irish if you can't tell, lol.
    My husband's niece went with the same starting letter. She has Heaven, Hailey and Hope. I thought she should have named the 2nd one Harley to keep with the less common Heaven but whatever (Heaven was actually a combination of her name, Heather, and her dad's name, Kevin).

  • Gavin, Avalon, and Tristan... if anyone can find the relations, I'd be surprised!

    Gavin is a different form of Gawain.
    Tristan was a knight of the round table, so was Gawain.

    Avalon... well, duh. :)
