  • I think it's a lovely idea. My sister's first name is our deceased sisters middle name.

  • i think it is a nice idea my daughter has my deceased  sisters middle name, and my nannys first name. she was named after both of them. i think its a very special name to give her.

  • I was named after a deceased sister, and honestly, do not mind it at all. It is actually an honor to have her name. I think it's a sweet way to remember a loved one.

  • Whatever yuo feel is rigth for your family. I would just make sure that by giving her one of the names I am not trying to replace my other child (I'm sure your not, just want the legacy to live on) Congrats

  • . If it were me, i dont think I would be able to name my child after one that I have lost because it would be a constant reminder of some someone who I have lost. But, in the end its your choice. GL...
