Re: Do your kids' names have family meaning?
We used family names for our son's first and middle names. His first name is from DH's side of the family (it was his grandpa's name, and then it's also the middle name of our nephew and DH's late brother, possibly some others?). We chose my uncle's name as his middle name, because we are both very close with him, and he doesn't have any of his own children. Him and my aunt are like a second set of parents to us, so we thought it would be nice to use his name somehow.
I'm pregnant with child #2, we don't have ANY first names we like that are family names, but the middle name will be a family name regardless of whether it's a boy or a girl. If it's a girl, she will have my middle name, which is also same middle name my mom, my grandma, and my MIL have. If it's a boy, he will either have my husband's middle name, or we will use my maternal grandfather's name.
