Honoring a Grandparent
I love, love, love the name Evelyn. I have for years, and wanted to name our first daughter Evelyn, but I knew 3 couples with babies with that name. It is currently number 38 in popularity, and I prefer something that while not totally "out there," is not in the top 50 or 100. Part of the reason I love it is because it is my maternal grandmother's name. We named our first daughter Fiona Marie. (Marie for my husband's grandmother.)
Do you have any suggestions for a second baby girl that would go well with Fiona (Two-syllable last name) that might honor a relative? Their names are/were:
Evelyn Pauline (my maternal grandmother)
Lolita Marguerite (my paternal grandmother)
Delcie Marie (went by Marie-husband's paternal grandmother)
I don't know my husband's maternal grandmother's name! She passed away when my mother-in-law was 17. Maybe I ought to find out...In the meantime, thoughts or insights would be helpful. We can use a family name for first or middle, change spellings, etc. Ideas?
Thanks for your help!
