Is this not done for girls? It's OK to name boys after their dad's. My DH says you just don't do that. I really want my first name "Suna" as my baby (if I ever have a girl) mn. I think DH thinks she'll get teased (backwards its anus). What do you all think, is it OK? Or does it have to be after another relative as DH thinks?

I think it is OK but I wouldn't personally do it. I like my name but don't love it and don't think it lends well to a mn. I did pass on my mn to my DD though.

I wouldn't do it just because it would be confusing for me! But I'd consider using my name for a middle name.

Our 3rd child is named after me. My name is Antoinette Dannielle, Toni for short. Our daughter is Annie Dannielle.

My first name is the same as my mothers last name,,, I wouldn't ever do that,, it's confusing! I would give my daughter a name similar for a mn though.

As far as Suna goes.... i definately don't think this is a problem. In school other kids don't even know your childs mn, so the chances of them knowing the middle name then finding a way to rearrange the name to tease your child are slim. . .

I think it's a good idea, I plan on giving on of my daughters my mn (Danielle) either as a fn or mn because I like it and it would have meaning

I personally think you can name your child anything you want. It would be a nice way to pass your name down the line.

I don't think it is commonly done for girls but I don't know why it shouldn't be done. Maybe most women don't like their own name enough to pass it on or something...

My dh has always said if we had a little girl we'd use my 1st name as her middle name (I really couldn't care less, but thought that was really sweet of him to suggest it).

So I'd say go for it, there's not one thing wrong with it & I think it's a great family tradition to start.

I don't know if kids would tease someone for the name Suna being Anus spelled backwards, that's a whole other issue.

I think its just fine!!!!! Why is it ok for the males but not the females? That doesn't make much sense. I do know of more mothers sharing middle names with their children, but either way is just fine! If I liked my first name better I'd pass it down to my child, but I don't like it that well and plus I think it would be pretty hard to find a name that goes with Erica being the middle name!!!

If you want to do it you should, especially if it's just for the middle name! I think the middle name is a good place to honor someone (parents or relatives) because it doesn't make it confusing at family gatherings but it still holds meaning. Plus like someone else said in school, the other kids dont usually even know your child's middle name so they can't really tease them about it!
