What family names do you like - name question #1002
I am not a big fan of repeating names that already run in the family although I respect people that do. Even so, I have some family names I would have liked to have used if they weren't already "taken". These are:
In my family they are a few Marias (I am one, and was already called Maria after someone else), my husband said the other day, if we had a daughter we could call her maria, and I said NO. Then he said maria + something else, and I said NO NO NO. I wanted to call our daughter like his grandma, and the name is also in my family: Eloisa, but he said it sounds too strange, and she will get picked on. We are having one family name, my father: Antonio, Tony for short, so if I have a boy that will be his name for sure. My husband is Felix, and his father before than, and his father before that... time someone (me) put a bloody stop to that one
Me and Hubby had always liked the name Alyssia, but my best friend recently had a baby girl called Alicia- so its too similar! She's said she wouldnt mind if we called a girl Alyssia, but i dont think we would now.
OH's family names are John and Henry, neither of which I'm particularly keen on for a first name, though they're nice for middle names.
My family name is Francis/Frances - it's my sisters name, my nan's middle name, my dad's middle name and my great-grandma's name. I love it. I want Abigail Frances as my first girl, or Kathryn Frances.
