Baby's middle name (HELP)

My mother passed a way last month, and I miss her deeply... she always wanted a grand baby and I am now 32 weeks along.. loosing her this close to the baby's due date really upset me.. however this is not what the post is about.

I was thinking about giving my moms name to my soon to be DD but that would make her intials M.A.N which I dont think my baby would ever forgive me for...

I could use my mother's first name as her middle but then it would almost sound like a train wreck: Michell Judith Nelson.

I have no clue what to do please help Im open!!

  • I like the above posters idea, why not TWO middle names, that'll get rid of the M.A.N problem. Maybe your moms and yours or your moms and your MIL/baby daddies moms

  • I don't think M.A.N. as initials are that bad, I have a friend from high school with those initials. She loved it and used it as a nickname ;)
