Quoting TwoLittleFrogs:

I don't like LYN ending names.

It makes think of the movie TED.


Ted: I met a girl; she's a cashier.

John: No way! That's awesome! We should fuckin' double date or something, you, me and Lori and w-what's her name?

Ted: White trash name. Guess.

John: Mandy.

Ted: Nope.

John: Marilyn.

Ted: Nope.

John: Brittany?

Ted: Nope.

John: Tiffany.

Ted: Nope.

John: Candace.

Ted: Nope.

John: Don't fuck with me on this! I know this shit!

Ted: Do you see me fuckin' with you? I'm completely serious.

John: Alright, speed round. I'm gonna rattle off some names, and when I hit it, you fuckin' buzz it, okay? You got me?

Ted: You do it. I will tell you. Yeah.

John: Alright: Brandy, Heather, Channing, Brianna, Amber, Serena, Melody, Dakota, Sierra, Bambi, Crystal, Samantha, Autumn, Ruby, Taylor, Tara, Tammy, Lauren, Charlene, Chantelle, Courtney, Misty, Jenny, Krista, Mindy, Noel, Shelby, Trina, Reba, Cassandra, Nikki, Kelsey, Shawna, Jolene, Urleen, Claudia, Savannah, Casey, Dolly, Kendra, Kylie, Chloe, Devon, Emmalou, fuckin' *Becky*?

Ted: No.

John: Wait; was it any of those names with a "Lynn" after it?

Ted: *Yes*.

John: Oh, I got you, motherfucker! I got you!

[Ted laughs]

John: Okay. Brandi-Lynn, Heather-Lynn...

Ted: Tami-Lynn.

John: [Exasperated] *Fuck*!

Eva Angelina I only talk to on facebook and she was always called Angel when she was around when I was little.


My uncle just won more visits/longer visits but I've only seen Ava Grace 2 times this year (easter and my daughter's 3rd birthday in may) otheriwse it was 2 years since I saw her last.

 do you ever talk to or hang out with these family members?? I know if my family we are all extremely close so for us it's a not, but if you see them once a year or less than that (hell even more than that for some) then why not

I probably wouldn't, unless you were super close with your G-Grandma.  Sounds like it (or versions of it) have been used a lot in your family and there are so many  other great names out there.

Wow she was a loved woman! What about Eve or Mae for a middle name? I wouldn't named child the same name as a first or second cousin but that is just me

Have you considered using Mae instead of Eva?  I think Heather brings up a great point.

Then I'd go ahead with the name. If y'all got together often, it coukd be a little confusing. But every now andthen, I think Iit's fine.
