The name Lynn is a name that gets passed on, but I think it's nice.. it's my sister's middle name, my mom's middle name and my neices middle name, it hasnt been passed on for that many generations but I plan on using the name for a mn for my first baby girl if I ever have one

My grandmother, Lois Adele, died in 2000. Every since we lost her we have used her name for most new babies in my family. We now have Caydence Lois, Heidi Lois, Brynn Adele Pearl, and my future daughter.

There aren't really any names that are used over and over and over again in my family. On DH's side of the family, I wouldn't say there are either.... but each of his brother's children's middle names came from a family member like: Courtney Lynn (Lynn is her mom's MN), Tyler Michael (Michael is his dad's MN) and Brandon Matthew (Matthew is his uncle's (my DH) MN).... but I don't think its that bad.

Yes we repeat a name and i love it. i already posted this in another place-- ok go back over 150 years, my great great, you get the picture here, grandmother was anna lane. so every other generation of women use anna or lane or a derivision. an ann, anna, connie lane, and so on on. my grandmother was durann, and my greatgrandmother just died, and her name as anna lane as well. so we'd like to combine to pay homage to those women and use annalane as one word, and use husband's mom's middle name of diane. i love it

My stepdad is Michael, my stepbrother is Michael, one of my brothers middle name is Micheael, and my newest brother-in-law is Michael. They all go by Mike too, it can get confusing.
Every time I have been pregnant, the folks push for a Michael but I say no way, lol. My sis is going to try for a baby this fall, she plans to use Tyler Michael so I'll be off the hook then

In my family it is James. My grandfather, uncle and cousin. I don't know if cousin James plans on naming his son James or not.

I personally wouldn't do this except maybe for middle names. But that's just me.
