Yes. All three of my children have family middle names. And my younger two also have family "nods" in their first name, but not an overt likeness. My second was entirely coincidental that it happened for his first name. But my third was intentional. It meant a lot to me to name any daughter we might have after my moms late mother. We chose a less traditional way of honoring her (went with her nickname and chose another "formal" name that could use the same nickname), but ended up finding out the name had even more ties to her than we thought. It helped that my husband loved the name to start, suggesting it to me rather than me introducing it.
