we kind of did, but not exactly.

my father's name, paul, is not my style, so i gave my son a name that *reminded* me of my father instead-- clark. all growing up, my mother (and other people i knew!) would refer to my dad as superman, saying that the glasses he wore made him look like clark kent. what's funny is that it seems like it might be a stretch, but my whole extended family knew immediately that clark was in honor of my dad.

similarly, i'm strongly considering the middle name beatrix if dh and i ever have a girl-- the name brings up strong memories of my paternal grandmother, because of her love of beatrix potter's peter rabbit stories.
