- Personal experiences with the name Lowell
My dignified great-grandfather beared the name Lowell, and I've always thought it was a perfect name, so I named my son that. My kids are Miles, Lowell, Raya, Loretta, Thomas, James, Wendy and Charlie.
My Great-Grandmother married Russell, and her father-in-law was James. I love that she named her son (my grandfather) Lowell. The family line goes James - Russell - Lowell. All great names with reference to a great poet. How wonderfully literary of her. Coincidentally, her name was Della (P) Ware, so I'm sure she was very "name conscious."
