Would you name your child after one of your ILs? If so which one(s) are good enough to receive that honor?

Samuel has FIL's name for his middle name. Gerald. Yeah, not so crazy about that name. Unfortunately for several generations back it's tradition in DH's family that the 1st son receives their paternal grandfather's name as his middle name, and the second son receives their maternal grandfather's name. DH was adament that we not break tradition. In my family my brother and cousin (both eldest sons) have their maternal grandfather's name but that didn't seem to matter for some reason. Not that Roger is on the top of my list either!

NO! No way, no how, LOL! Lukily my husband agreed with me, neither of us like naming kids after family members, on either side. I guess I just want them to have their "own" name without having to share KWIM?

Two of my kids carry names from my exes (their daddy's) faimly. The first one has the name Davis as his middle name in honor of my exes paternal grandfather. My ex is his only grandson and does not carry the family name (Davis) because he was adopted by his stepdad when he was 9 so that was our way to have the family name pass on. The other one is my daughter, her middle name is Lee and it is more in respect to my grandmother, but my ex SIL's middle name is Lee too so she likes to think it's after her. My other two kids carry names from my side of the family, always middle names.

Nope. However, my DD is named what my MIL was going to name DH if he had been a girl.

If our next one is a boy, his middle name will be donald. My fathers name is donald and my FILs name is also donald... so it just works out well. My original plan, before I had Ivy was to give Ivy my mothers name as a middle name (which I did, her middle name is Kathaleen) since my mother passed away a few years ago. But then if the 2nd child was a girl, I would give her my MILs name as a middle name. Since MIL decided to be such a crazy b****, the plan has changed. If I have another girl, I will probably give her my grandmothers name as a middle name. Screw MIL.

So yes I would if I got along with them. I like FIL, so no problem there. MIL though? Not a chance.

Thanks to pattiandthemoos for the great siggy!

We gave DF's Aunt Dianne, who passed away in October, Adeliya's MN. She was a very strong woman who battled Pancreatic Cancer for 3 years when they gave her 6 months at the time of her diagnosis. We had already decided that her middle name was going to be Dianne before she passed if she was going to be a girl.

Aunt Dianne was also the first one we told we wre pregnant.

No way! I would never do that. I just do not like my inlaws. I want them out of my life completely. So I don't want a reminder of them in our child's name.

My daughters middle name is Charlee-Jo, after my dad Charles

My next baby will be Olavee Jordyn for a girl, or Olavee James if its a boy after my FIL whos middle name is Olavee.

I like the idea of having our kids names after their grandpas. I never knew ANY of my grandpas, it was pretty hard because I never really had grandparents. So for me, it means alot because my kids do have both sets of grandparents, something I never had because both my grandpas died before I saw them. So to name that after mine and DH's dad has meaning behind it, just so they know that these 2 men are an important part of their lives.

We wanted to but we knew that inevitably someone's feelings would get hurt. How do you choose between one person or the other?

We named our son Jacob Leslie (Leslie is my dad's mn, grandma's first name, and Great grandfathers first name).
The first born daughter will have the middle name Carla after DH's aunt who passed from cancer.

We thought this was a better way to honor our families and try to avert stepping on anyone's toes.
