Whenever the subject of names comes up, my husband's family usually mentions once or twice that they don't reuse first names often unless it's honoring thing.

Anyway....I have ALWAYS loved the name Gloria. Always! but anytime I bring it up my dh will mention he has/had (passed couple years ago) an Aunt by marriage named Gloria.

Well I was looking through so family tree stuff and noticed that he has a first cousin with the same exact first name as huis brother. The name wasn't honouring anyone either So this whole premise of never reusing a name was just an excuse.

Time for me to vamp up my efforts to make him fall in love with Gloria again.

I just love that name and if he would agree to it, I would be done looking.

Oh and just because...what do you guys think of Gloria? I was thinking of pairing it with a more modern floral to modern it up a bit

Gloria Jasmine
Gloria Yasmine
Gloria Sage
Gloria Delphine

im not a fan of gloria, my grandmother's name was gloria and she hated her name. I have considered using Glory in the past as a way to honor her. Instead we merged her name with DHs grandpas name to = Gwen and used that for my 2nd DDs middle name

If you like a name then so be it! Don't let anyone stop ya. I think that's one of the most frustrating things about naming a child is that the whole family tries to get their 2 cents in.

Gloria Yasmine sounds alright. I think I like Jasmine Gloria. I would've considered Jasmine for my daughter, however in this case his family's dog already has that name. Don't think I'd want to honor the dog just yet by stealing her name for a baby.
