Honor Names - too many options!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! We’re TTC but not pregnant yet and was wondering if I could have some help with honor names. We have a lot of options in our family and I can’t decide on the perfect combo.

[name_f]Honor[/name_f] names:
[name_f]Annette[/name_f] - after myself, my mom and his mom who all have some form of [name_f]Anne[/name_f] in our name

[name_f]Colette[/name_f] - after his sister, [name_f]Nicole[/name_f]

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] - after his late father, [name_m]Joseph[/name_m]

[name_f]Stella[/name_f] - after his late father whose first name was Consteletti (he went by his middle name, [name_m]Joseph[/name_m])

[name_f]Louise[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] - after hubby’s middle name, [name_m]Louis[/name_m]

Here are the combos I have:
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Annette[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Stella[/name_f]

[name_f]Madeline[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Madeline[/name_f] [name_f]Stella[/name_f]
[name_f]Madeline[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephina[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]

[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Celia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]

Other family names:
[name_u]Glen[/name_u] (my brother)

Any favorite combos or different suggestions would be very helpful!

I absolutely love [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]! That’s the name that stood out to me the most - you don’t hear [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] enough, the nn [name_u]Josie[/name_u] is adorable, and [name_f]Violet[/name_f] is such a beautiful name as well. Some thoughts on your other combos…

[name_f]Madeline[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f] - this was my favorite name out of the three, though I also liked [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Annette[/name_f] - this sounds beautiful! I’m not a huge fan of [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], but I love it paired with [name_f]Annette[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] - I love [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]! I also think [name_f]Lila[/name_f] could go great with some of the other longer names you like such as [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Colette[/name_f], or [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Madeline[/name_f]. Though [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is truly beautiful:)

Of all your names, my favorite is definitely [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] or [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]. Some other ideas…
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] (way to honor the name [name_f]Nicole[/name_f]???)
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Marianne[/name_f] (I also like this name as a way to honor the name [name_f]Anne[/name_f])
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Marianne[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Annelise[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Annelise[/name_f]

Best wishes!:slight_smile:

Thank you SO much! [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] is quickly becoming a front runner for me, alongside [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Annette[/name_f]. [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is a favorite too, the only downside is the nn [name_f]Lily[/name_f] is so popular, but the combo keeps me coming back to it.

I love you suggestions of [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Annelise[/name_f] and [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Noelle[/name_f]! I also love [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u] (as an honor to [name_u]Glen[/name_u]!) however, our last name starts with an “[name_m]Ran[/name_m]” so it all kind of runs together. Again, thanks for your input - I really appreciate it!

I agree that [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] is beautiful. I also like [name_f]Celia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] from your list.

What about [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Annette[/name_f], [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f], or [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]?

Oh I like the suggestion of [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] [name_f]Colette[/name_f]! Thanks!

You sure hit the jackpot with family names. I love:

[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Annette[/name_f]
[name_f]Madeline[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_f]Celia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
