Girl’s name to honour Greg

Do any of you clever berries have ideas on a girl’s name that would honour my husband’s dad Greg? It would be for a middle, but we are absolutely stumped! Thank you :slight_smile:

None of thy these are exact, but I think that they would work

[name_f]Gabriella[/name_f]
[name_f]Georgina[/name_f]
[name_f]Geraldine[/name_f]
[name_f]Gretchen[/name_f]
[name_f]Greta[/name_f]
[name_f]Grace[/name_f]
[name_u]Georgie[/name_u]
[name_u]Or[/name_u] some thing more out there
[name_u]Grey[/name_u] or gray

Berries have your back! :wink:

[name_u]Greer[/name_u]
[name_f]Grace[/name_f]
[name_u]Rory[/name_u] (for [name_m]Greg[/name_m]ory?)
[name_f]Gretchen[/name_f]
[name_f]Greta[/name_f]
[name_u]Garnet[/name_u]
[name_f]Gregoria[/name_f]
[name_u]Grey[/name_u] (I really like this one as a middle for a girl!)
[name_f]Grecia[/name_f]

I think any name beginning with ‘gr’ will work! However, I would suggest you ask your husband’s dad [name_m]Greg[/name_m] what he feels honoured by. If you aren’t a fan of all the names, maybe you could take inspo from his birth month/favourite flower or something like that! For example, [name_f]May[/name_f], [name_u]June[/name_u], etc! :two_hearts:

[name_u]Greyson[/name_u] is a unisex name.

Gregoria
Gregoreva
Gregorie

Iram/Ira has the same root meaning “watchful”
Same meaning, different origin: Casey/Kasey

[name_m]Just[/name_m] wanted to add [name_f]Gigi[/name_f]

Thank you! I love the way you’re thinking broader eg Daisy/Ira, and particularly like the suggestion of wider associations eg favourite flower. I’d ask him but we lost him the day of our first scan, hence the wanting to honour him in her name. She’s due in a couple of weeks now!

He was a man who loved the water, a fisherman through and through, so now I’m thinking maybe [name_u]Remy[/name_u] (oarsman) or Uisce (Irish for water)… other suggestions in this realm very welcome!

Thanks so much berries for opening my mind away from just ‘Greg’ - although I will suggest [name_m]Gregorie[/name_m] and some others too :slight_smile:

[name_u]Grey[/name_u]
[name_f]Greta[/name_f]
[name_u]Greer[/name_u]
[name_f]Regina[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwen[/name_f]

Does he have a middle name? Maybe that would be easier to turn into a girl’s name.

[name_f]Gregorine[/name_f], maybe?
[name_f]Gregoria[/name_f]
[name_f]Gregorina[/name_f]
[name_f]Greta[/name_f]

I would just use [name_m]Greg[/name_m] or [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] with a feminine first name. I have female family members with [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_u]Ryan[/name_u] as middle names. I love it. Example; how cute is [name_f]Paige[/name_f] [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] or [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] [name_m]Greg[/name_m]

[name_m]Eiran[/name_m] / [name_u]Eran[/name_u] has the same meaning ‘watchful, vigilant’ but sounds a bit more neutral, or you could get from that to [name_f]Eira[/name_f] or [name_u]Erin[/name_u]

A bit wordy but [name_u]Sentinel[/name_u] is pretty cool!

[name_f]Gaia[/name_f] is my first thought, or [name_f]Gracie[/name_f], I like [name_u]Grey[/name_u] as a middle name too. Apparently it means watcher, as in watcher of the flock so [name_f]Una[/name_f] or [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] might work too.
