If you named your child after someone, do they remind you of them?

I named by son after my husband (DH's first name, FIL's name as middle). I named my daughter after my grandmother (first name) and my aunt (middle name), both who had passed. My son looks IDENTICAL to my husband, and my daughter really resembles my grandmother in coloring and temper! lol (everyone says she looks like me, but I'm pasty and she's tan). So, did you name your baby after someone and then your baby ended up looking like that person?

  • My oldest is named both after my grandfather Paul my step dad's grandfather but I considered him as my grandapa who died when I found out I was preganate and Martin who is my mom's father and died before I was born. I'm not sure how either one was like but all I know is my grandpa Paul was a very caring funny and giving guy. Which my son is giving but so am I and his father but his only two ask me again when he gets older but he was bald when he was a few months old and it was just like how my grandpa's head was no hair on top but hair on the side. oh and he looks just like his father. My youngest is named after my husbands uncle I think or grandfather maybe I don't know how his family and my son is only three months.

  • Oldest DD has her middle name after my Mom & they are nothing alike. They get along great & they love having the name in common but aren't very similar. DS has his middle name after his Dad (my ex) & a few other male relatives in the family. I don't think he is really like any of them, he is more like me, lol. Youngest DD has her first name after her Great-Great-Grandma. This woman was 92 when DD was born & they were very close until she died when DD was 2. DD is like her in that they both have very gentle souls.
