  • Sometimes you can just use a segment of the name to give meaning, or a similar sound (for example, to honor my grandmother LaVonne, I want to use the name Vaughn for a boy)

    Morse= Amora (means Love, wouldn't that be sweet?), Mora, Moria, Mori
    McNall = Nalla, Mcall
    Wayne= Wyne, Waynette, Waneta

    Or maybe combining some letters of the names....
    Morayne (Morse and Wayne together)
    Mayse (taking some letters from each name)

  • I don't like all the weird manipulating to try to change the name - why change it at all? Geneva McNall ______. You're honoring a person - don't change that person's name if your using it to honor him!

  • I wouldn't change his name ... then it's not his name. And if you're using it as a middle name, I don't see a reason to change it.

  • Well, I went to school with a Waynetta ...

    I really dislike all the attempts at "creativity" that result in made-up names.

  • I don't see a way to make any of those feminine

  • If it is a middle name no need to change it. There is no real way to do that. I wouldn't try

  • Then I see no reason to make it feminine.

  • For Wayne, maybe a variation of Gwen/Gwynne?

  • i cant see those names being made feminine..

  • For Wayne switch the a and y Wyane (Why-Ann) That is my aunts name. People will probably mispronounce it though. For McNall I would drop the Mc and go with Nalla. Now that I say that I actually think Nalla Wyane would sound pretty. =) Good luck. I think it's great that you are honoring loved ones with your childs name. A lot of people aren't doing that anymore.
