The thread on using a grandparents name got me thinking... what would a boy and a girl named after your grandparents be?

My girl would be Dorothy Gertrude.
My boy would be Cornelius Lawrence.

Mine sound weird because I have one set of grandparents in Italy and the other in the US:

Cesira Doris
Giovanni Harold



DHs would be unusual too, as one set of grandparents is Filipino and the other American: Domingo Alfred and ?? Gladys (will have to ask him hid grandmother's name!)

Ooooh.. I like Giovanni! Totally think you should go with that! You could call him Gio! I bet you he would be a little "romeo!"

I like it but it is sooooo overused in my family! LOL. He passed away very young so everyone of my mom's brothers and sisters named one of their kids Giovanni, Gianni, or Giovanna...it is THE most common name in our family.

Those names aren't really so bad.

Better than Dorothy, anyway.

If I used middle names from each of them, the girls name would be Adeline Arlington and the boys name would Wright Debbs. Yeah, not happening. I'm considering using Wright as a middle name for a boy because it's also my dad's middle name and the name he goes by (good old Southern boy that he is) and Adeline for a middle name for a girl if I can convince Neely.

My grandmothers' first names were Mary and Virgie and my grandfathers' first names were Dorsey and Eugene.

And I should say these are just my side. I have no idea what Neely's grandparents names were. I know that his grandma on his dad's side was named Willa Neely, hence his name, but I that's all I know.
