  • While I totally agree with ihatetocook, that siblings names do not need to match and that is actually a pet peeve of mine! Lol, I'm 40 years old and have 3 brothers and the last thing that matters in my life is whether or not they sound nice together....but I digress. Why not just use Jeany. I think it is WAY more meaningful to name her after your Grandmother than to sound cute with her siblings, she's an indiviual, not an accessory to your family =) FWIW, my middle is after my great-grandmother and it is incredibly special to me.

  • I'd use Jean, the name you love honoring the Grandma you love. Children's names don't have to match their siblings, they're individuals and after childhood won't be thought of as (whoever's) brother or sister.

  • Couldn't you give her a name with a Y and them use Jean as a middle name?

  • Idk why this is posted anonymous... but, my husband wants a middle name with a Y.... so I thought if I dressed it up a little...... he'd go with it but I think I'm really out of luck on this one.

  • ^ thank you gramsmom. I really want to do that... I think my husband just doesn't like the name Jean... so I'm just gonna put my foot down. :)

  • might have to do a combo dealio~the French are neat about adding names with Jean to another name. YvetteJean...weird..I bet you can come up with something in your theme...does grandma have a maiden name or churchy name...great grand mother?
