Favorite Family Names...

I know a lot of people like to honor family members through names. Have you found any gems? Please list them below.

Philomène - I’ve always been a fan of [name_f]Philomena[/name_f], imagine my surprise when I found out this was my twice great grandmother’s name.

[name_m]Emile[/name_m] - One of my great grandfathers’ names which I love.

[name_f]Elvire[/name_f] - Find this to be very pretty one of my great grandmothers’ names.

[name_f]Harriet[/name_f] - My paternal grandmother’s middle, also love that it double honors [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] Tubman!







[name_m]Calixte[/name_m] - Found this one interesting

From your list I really like [name_m]Emile[/name_m], [name_m]Pierre[/name_m], [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] and [name_m]Calixte[/name_m].

I’ve got a lot of family names on my list. I’ve got Icelandic, Swedish and Polish heritage, so it’s pretty mixed. These are my favorites:

[name_m]Johannes[/name_m] (or [name_m]Johann[/name_m])

SO also has some great names in his family, he has Assyrian and Jewish heritage. These are our favorites from his family:

[name_m]Abraham[/name_m](this is SO’s name, same as his grandfather’s, he goes by [name_m]Bram[/name_m])
[name_m]Menachem[/name_m] / [name_m]Mendel[/name_m]

[name_f]Dora[/name_f] and [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] are the only ones I’ve found that I like in my family!
