Name to old fashioned?? *Edit* Have you named your child after a loved one?

Posted by   + Show Post

What do you think of the name Lyle?

We are expecting boy #3. Lyle was my husbands grandfathers name who passed away about two years ago.  What do you think of older fashioned names?? We havent decided on this name for sure and don't really have middles picked out.

*Edit*  Ok, so naming your baby after a loved one. Whats it like, do you always think of the loved one when you use the name or when you look at your baby do you think of them? I like the idea of using his grandpas name, but I don't want to constantly be thinking about Grandpa when I am talking to my son? KWIM?

Our oldest dd is named after 3 of her GMs....Dh's GGM- Lillian ( she died many years ago-before Dh was born actually), my mother and my MIL. My mother's name is Linda and my MIL's middle name is Lynn, so we used Lin for her middle name as it is the Chinese version of Lynn. 

I don't think of anyone but Lilly when we look at her and speak with her. She may be named after them, but she is definitely her own person.

 My sons middle name is after my grandfathers last name before my grandfather was adopted (Riley).  My daughter has a old fashion name (Camille). 

My mother gave me great advice.  Your child doesn't want to be spelling their name for their entire life so keep it simple.  Little did she know there is about 5 different ways to spell my name!  LOL

My girls are Sarah Elizabeth and Alexis Christine. Sarah is named after my best friend (who is also her God mother) and her middle name is my middle name and a family name. Lexi's middle name is my MIL's middle name, too.

If we ever have a boy, he'll be Wesley Charles after my brother and my Grandpa.

I love the name Lyle!

 I have never heard anyone else with the name either, well besides my Grandmas middle name. My mom and sisters middle name is Lorraine, which I love too.

Quoting ProudMommaBear: That's the first time I've talked to someone else with the middle name Louise! That's so awesome :)
Quoting masesmom:

 My middle name is Louise! I hoped someday we would have a girl and we could use it, but 3 boys later....doesn't look to promising :)


Quoting ProudMommaBear: I like it! Dds middle name is Louise, which is my great grandmas middle name :)

I like it! I like country names, 26 yrs ago Tyler was not heard of that often and that was 1 of 4 country names I had picked out. He has his Grandpas and dads middle name. If that is what you and your SO love I would go with you Heart. :):)
