  • I am named after both my parents...My name is Danielle Lyn....Dad's name is Daniel and mom's name is Lynda. My brother is named after grandparents. My nephew's name is Allyn, and both my husband and father-in-law's middle names are Allyn. I plan to name my son (when/if I have one) with a middle name of Daniel (both grandfathers are named Daniel) and I plan to name my daughter (when/if I have one) Caitlyn...the -lyn part will be after my middle name, my mom's name, and I think my mother-in-laws middle name also...

  • My daughter is named after my great grandmother. My oldest son is named after a favorite cousin. My middle son is named after my brother and my youngest son's middle name is in honor of a dear friend who passed away.

  • Nope! We wanted our DD to have a name that she didn't have to share with a family member! Hence Audrey (first name after Audrey Hepburn, her movies hold a special place in the memory banks for my mother and me) and Rachel (middle name, after a character in DH and my favorite book series who shares a last name with us)

  • DD middle name is Carlene, after my Great-Great Grandma that I was close to.
    It was hard to convince dh to use such "an old name" ..
    Next time he gets to chose the next kids middle name.. lol.. Naming kids are so hard!
