  • We did it. My maternal grandfather's last name is Owens. He has really been an inspiration (got diagnosed with Alzheimer's - wanted to keep his mind active. So, he went back to school and got a degree)! Well, long story short, ds is Owen.

  • It depends on the last name. We have some crazy last names in our family that I wouldn't wish on a child (like Weerdhuizen), but others that I thought could work (like Jewell).

  • I seriously considered naming our youngest Vaughn. It is my paternal grandmother's maiden name. I think it is cool depending on the name.

  • It depends on the name. My mother's cousin did that with her son, she named him Connor after her mother's maiden name and now my cousin just named her new baby Cooper after her own maiden name.

  • If it isn't too strange as a first name, I am all for it.
