Okay here is the situation. My middle name is Leah. I've never really used it (since I go by Samantha) but I absolutely love it!! Would that be totally weird to name our daughter Leah? Not to honor me or anything, I just love the name!

Not weird in the slightest. I think if you like the name then definitely use it. I would think that because its your MN thats even more reason to use it. Ive never quite understood why alot of men are keen on having their sons name honour them, but you never really hear of a child honouring their mother by using their name, your carrying them for 9 months, giving birth to them and then raising them, if their name is going to honour anyone, it should be the mother IMO. But thats just me, i plan on using my FN for my daughters MN.

I write stories a lot and many of my characters have first (or middle) names that are the same as their parents' middle names.

I don't find it strange at all.
