So my dads family the boys had the first letter "C" because my grandfathers name is Charles the girls had "M" because my grandmothers name is Marion so they had a Charles II (chuck), craig, maureen & Mary Anne. My moms side my grandparents used the letter "R" for the first names in all the kids my grandfather was Richard so they named them Richard II, rusty, randy, robin & Renee'.

The Duggars use "J" because the dad is jim bob. Josh & Anna use "M" so far for all 3 of theirs.


I'm just curious how many people follow some sort of trend when choosing names.

I'm Brittany dh is ken we have Charles, Richard & Andrew, all reused family names.

I don't follow trends. I named dd Vivianna which has a v like Vince. If we have a son he would be named geno and girls unsure of at the moment..

We were going to have first names that started with "E", but we are now seriously considering some other ones for this baby.

My oldest DD is Lindsey Nichole, both just names I liked.
My 2nd DD is Camryn Ruth, Camryn I liked and Ruth is my mother's middle name.
My youngest DD is Caroline Jewell. I liked the double 'C's' because my youngest 2 are close in age, and DH insisted on Jewell because it's his mothers middle name.

We used SH for our kids..... Sheccid, Sheyla.... and the third it was going to be Sherlyn, but my poor husband and all of my family kept going "Sheycid or Shela" so I send the trend to the trash and just named her Valery.  My husband was very happy!  = )
