My parents: Edith Marie and Robert Leroy

DH's parents: Jodie and David Michael

None of their first names are really our favorite. We named DS Caleb Michael after DH's Grandpa, Michael David. FIL is also named after him.
TY *Kiliki* for my awesome siggy!

My Parents are Lynn Marie and Jeffery Leonard

My MIL is Sandra Pauline (only ever goes by Sandy) FIL is not in the picture.

We don't plan on using my parent's names in any way, but our grandparents instead. Depending on if we have a girl, I may consider using either lynn or marie as a middle name, but that has never really been discussed.

my parents are Jane Elizabeth and Joseph Arthur. My ILs are Susan Claire and Donald Benoit.

the reason we didn't name our kids after them is because I wouldn't want to hurt any feelings. I don't mind Joseph or Elizabeth, I like Claire and Jane, I don't like Susan, Arthur, Donald, or Benoit.

I probably wouldn't use their exact names, but I plan on using some variation of their names...like, Dennings or Marigold.

Timothy Lawrence and Teresa Ann

If this baby is a boy we will be using one of my dad's names (depending on the first name we choose). I'm not sure how I'd incorporate my mom's name? I like doing family names for middle, but Ann is so generic and Teresa doesn't sound great as a mn...

My parents are Barbara Jane and Rex LaVern. In-laws are Edwin Reese and Gwendolyn Jean.

Both my mom and mil HATE their names, so we won't use them.

DD is Miley Reeese.
If we have a boy, it will be Caleb Rex. Both Grandpas will be honored.

My parents are Robert Maurice (pronounced Morris) and Susanne Michele.

DH's parents are Perry Jerome and Jan Marie.

We plan on using Susanne, Robert, and Marie as middle names, and might end up using a variation of Perry for this one (Peregrine Bernard). But I really don't like the name Jan.

Timothy Ray and Rebecca Ann

DS is Laikon Timothy, was going to be Laikon Timothy Ray but my mom freaked about the two middles. I would use Rebecca and Ann both, but if this baby is a girl we need to use a girl name from DHs side of the family for the middle since we already used one from my side. DHs parents are Steven Eugene and Audrea Kay. If this baby is a boy the middle will be Steven almost definitely. I don't much care for Audrea or Kay, but we would probably use Raylene, DHs Grandmother's name as a middle. Sorry if that was a jumbled mess of crazy, lol.

Mine: Charles and Rosalind

DH's: Jim and Sherry

DS' middle name is James, which is my FIL's full first legal name (it's also my grandmother's maiden name).

We plan to name our first daughter Charlotte to honor multiple family members, one of which is my father as Charlotte is the feminine version of Charles. We're also considering Rose as a middle name which would honor my mom.

All that to say I love using versions/forms of family names to incorporate into our children's names. But I don't like any of their names enough to use as my children's first names.

Mine: Karen Dale & Barry Eugene
His: Eliza Theresa & Randall Scott

DH and I talked about naming our daughter Eliza, but I didn't want my Mom to feel bad because her name isn't our style. However, I had my first daughter Madison Ava when I was in high school and her middle name is after her father's mother.

Vicki May & Richard Scott.

I wouldn't use Vicki or Richard, but have used May as one of Emmy's middle names, and any son would have the middle name Scott. I would also use Victoria (even though Mum isn't a Victoria)..

My parents are Keith and Pamela.
I would have used my dad's name as middle name, but my sister used it and I didn't want to copy it. We haven't used them in any other way.
