Are your children? SO? Who and why?

My middle name is after my grandparents. Maelee. Mae was my grandma's middle name on my mother's side. Lee was my grandfather's first name on my father's side. Although my mother though it was his middle name. Good thing too or it would have been Maerosevelt. O.o
My SO is named after his father. And my DD has her own name.


My first featured post ya'll! Thanks!

my middle name is after my mother and my grandmothers middle name. My first name is after an allman brothers song. My sons first name is after Jimi Hendrix and his middle name is after my best friend. My S/O is named after the mormon prophet Joseph Smith lol. His family is mormon, we are not. So we find this ironic and funny.

I love it when people have names that hold family significance!
Tradition in the women on my side (me, my mom, grandma, etc) have the variation of Lynn as a middle name.
I have a brothers whose middle name is Stevenson (son of Steven) and another one Stewart for our clan.
My sons middle name is Alan, after his Grandad :)

I'm named after a character on a commercial that played shortly before or after my birth. I don't remember anymore. My youngest daughters middle name is Madeline, after Madeline Kahn.

I'm named after Josie and the Pussy Cats lol. My dd Miroslava is named after her paternal great grandmother. And I guess, in a way, all of my kids are named after my husband because of their patronymics.

I was named after my dads childhood sweethearts nickname. It's also a name in a Beatles song and a song by Barbara Streisand.
