Do you think it's cute to name girls after their daddys?

Like really naming them after just maybe spelling it differently. Example: Steve naming a baby girl Stevie or Stevey.

  • it is fine depending on the name. I know two woman who were the last child after many girls (no more trying for the boy) so they were named after their fathers: Frankie and Johnie.

  • It depends on the name I guess. If its friendly to either gender then I think its fine...but if its a GUY name like Mark or Andrew, then no.

  • My mom was named Roberta after he Father Robert... she actually went by Bobbie as a nickname and now goes by her first name Kathy ( short for Kathern)

  • And it depends on whether it's the girl's first or middle name, too. You couldn't get away with James as a first name, but you could probably give it as a middle name, esp. if you spelled it Jaymes.

  • My best friend's girl is Skylar Jo, her daddy is Joe, I think in that instance it's adorable.
