My side:

Caroline Ann
Evan Robert

Phyllis Gertrude
Richard John

I only used the Ann for a middle name for Kaitlyn as it has been a tradition in my family.

DH's side

Frieda
Jacob

Jacob has been used way way too many times in his family to even consider using it. Other than that, to me the other names are too old-fashioned and out of date to use.

DH's Grandparents:

Helen Lee
Harold Henderson--nickname "Pete"

Lilly
William

Dh's mom's maiden name is Dalton (Helen and Pete's last name.) I would have named our son if we had one, but his cousin already used it.

The only name I would use from my side would be Laura, as I loved my Granny.

My middle name is Elizabeth, but if it wasn't then I would use that for a little girl. My sister used Kay for her daughter's middle name. MIL tried talking me into using Cecilia for my baby, but I said no way!

Let's see...

My grandparents were Ruth Evelyn, Richard Edward, Wilhelmina, and Eduard. DS's middle name is Edward, after both my grandfathers.

On DH's side, we have John, Victoria, Louis, and Katherine (those are the Americanized spellings). We've toyed with the idea of Victoria as a middle name, but nothing is certain there.

Dad's parents:
Donald and Mary....ok, but I wouldn't use.

Mom's parents:
Virginia and Jesse.....and I obviously thought Jesse was good

DH's were :Scott, Mary(I think), Peggy and Newlan....and we used Scott for Jess's middle name so He is named for both grandfathers

My maternal grandparents were a huge part of my life: Flo (Florence) and Dolph (Adolph). Paternal grandparents died before I was born. When my son was born, we named him Andrew (the A for my grandfather, was NOT going to use Adolph! and my nephew beat us to Aron) Loren (for my father, who was called Lefty by everyone who knew him). Daughter Jennifer Wyle was named for two great-great-grandmothers named Jenny and Jane, and Wyle is my MIL's maiden name, and it is traditional in this family to give Wyle as middle name to the first-born.

Don't worry about Grandma Brittany. There will be a gazillion Grandma Brittanies by then, trust me!

and

Partners:
Victorine (known as Suzy) dont know her husbands name
Eileen and Dennis

My middle names are Berenice Margot and my brothers are Philip Charles, so the names have already been used. Berenice is a family name, my Mum has two cousins called Berenice too, known as Berry and Benny.

Partner has mentioned using Dennis, I dont like the name but I might use it out of respect.

Gene & Maryann

I don't know my other set of g-parents; they've pretty much disowned us. As for Brian's I don't know his either. They have all passed on years ago.

I might use Maryann, but I would make it two words: Mary Ann, and it would be more for my friend Mary than my grandmother.

I like Elizabeth and Leonie as mn's but that is it. My great grandmother's name is Dorothy I might use that one day.

My gp's--
maternal - Marguerite and Harold
Paternal - Albert and Eleanor

Dh's gp's--
maternal - jeez, they escape me right now
paternal - Caroline and Frederick

We used Albert for ds's middle name (it's also my dad's middle name and fil's middle name). If we have another girl I'd like to name her Eleanor and call her Ellie.
