Were you named after anyone? What about your kids? Your DH/SO? I got my first name from my great grandma and my middle name is my moms middle name. My kids arent named after anyone. My SO was named after his dad.

For me: I was named after my great-grandmother. My mom's family names their kids after their ancestors. My dad's gave me Lee for my middle name for my grandmother's middle name.
my hubby: He was named after his grandfathers
For DD: Her first name was not in the family I don't think, but her middle name is common on both sides of the family.

My name (Adrienne) is simmilar to my mums name (Adriana), and it was choosen because of that. As my mum often mentions me and my sisters were concived in Greece, and we have a middle name to remind everyone of it: Kallithea. Also I'm named after a friend of my mum's - Rose.

Emily – Rae, is also named after Rose. She was a wonderful woman but died (breast cancer) when i was pregnant with Emily. Michelle is after her hounary aunt, who died becuase of domastic violence. Coincidently her other middle name Diane, is Kelly's mums name - as far she knows, yes, it's after 'Nanny Di'.


Darcy – Lei is again named after Rose. Elizabeth because it's Kelly's middle name, which is the same as her aunt. She's also named after a very special woman Kathryn, I won't go itno details but she's very special to both me and Kelly.
