This might be a strange question...I had the name Grace picked out for years if I were to have another girl...Then I decided to use Ella for a first name and Grace for a middle name...It seems like lately i've been hearing alot of girls with the name Grace or Gracie and I just love it so much still...I was thinking that if I have another girl i'd name her Grace as a way to remember Ella, but then I think that it's not fair to another baby..Just curious what everyone's opinion is, or if they've heard of people doing that...I don't want to have another daughter and have her grow up thinking I am trying to compare her to Ella or have her replace Ella, because that wouldn't be the reason at all...I'm not even sure we would have another girl (the changes are pretty high it would be though).
Some people feel differently. I would not use it because of the reasons you stated. I was back and forth when I was naming Tristan because I just didn't know. I named Dominic before he was born and it broke my heart because I love his name and well, it was perfect for him. I decided tho, that I would not name my future baby(s) until they were born. I have a Dominic Manuel and a Tristan Alexander. I considered using Manuel for Tristan's Middle name also, but in the end, for me, I decided I wanted a seperate name for my 2nd son. I see no problem with it if you want to do it, but don't feel obligated. I struggled 9 months with Tristan's name.
i thought about calling keeley, robin after jessica (jessica robin) but like u stated i dint think it was fair they are both seperate and have there own names i too didnt want keeley thinking that i wanted to replace jessica, one of my daughters i would love to name their daughter after jessica thou
I struggled with this, but in a bit of a different way (and not knowingly either; Nate pointed out that this must've been on a subconcious level).
I wanted to name Pippi Noelle. My reasoning was that seeing how she's due in December, it would be a beautiful Christmas name (and it just sounds SO FRIGGIN' PRETTY). Nate pointed out that he didn't want to do that because it sounded too much like "Noah." Never occurred to me until he said it ... but he was right.
So Pippi will not be Noelle ... but I am about 98% sure she's got a name
Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!
I'm Barb, Mom to Angel on Earth Julia Rose (7*22*08), her twin brother Angel in Heaven Noah (7*22*08), and rainbow baby Sydney Noelle (12*4*09).

We were going to name Katrina - Rachel - had she survived. That was the name we have always loved. When we found out Katrina wasn't going to make it we decided to look up some different names to find some meanings behind them. I had always liked the name Katrina, but it was never at the "top" of my list. Anyway, I decided to look up the meaning of it and it means "pure" and in some books "pure love". We thought this was absolutely perfect and so fitting for our Sweet Little Angel baby.
My mom told me once I got pregnant with Sweet Pea here that we shouldn't use Rachel because we'll always associate that name with Katrina. My friend agreed with her. Then I started thinking about it and I thought that might be true. So we found another name that we really love as well and said if Sweet Pea is a girl, she'll have this name.
Well, just last week after finding out she's a girl, I said to Jon, "I think I like Rachel again because I feel as if this baby is a gift from Katrina - considering Sweet Pea's EDD is the exact day we conceived Katrina in 2008 (March 19)". So now we're debating between the two.
Anyway, I know it's not the exact same, but I think if you truly love that name you can use it.

Even though, I'm still undecided about future pregnancy, I thought about this too. I love his name so much, Eric Jason. And I thought I would name a boy Jason and a girl Erika. But I haven't talked to my husband about that so I don't what his opinion on that.
