Honouring Father with Daughters name

[name_f]My[/name_f] fathers name was [name_m]Peter[/name_m] [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] [name_m]Smith[/name_m] and I was hoping to honour his name with one of my children, but I’m having another girl and can’t find a feminine enough name! I don’t mind unisex, or anything, my other daughters name is [name_u]Frankie[/name_u]. Anyone have any ideas of how I can honour him?

[name_m]Peter[/name_m]: [name_f]Peta[/name_f], [name_f]Petra[/name_f]
[name_m]Gregory[/name_m]: [name_f]Gregoria[/name_f], [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_u]Grey[/name_u] (GREgorY)

You could use names that fit his initials. Also, you could use something that reminds you of him. Gemstone, birth month, name of a place he loves, etc.

ETA: [name_f]Petra[/name_f] [name_u]Grey[/name_u] or [name_f]Peta[/name_f] [name_u]Grey[/name_u] would be great.

[name_f]My[/name_f] first thought is [name_f]Peggy[/name_f], a smashup of [name_m]Peter[/name_m] and [name_m]Gregory[/name_m].

[name_f]Petra[/name_f] called [name_m]Petey[/name_m] is also good. I like that even more. [name_u]Frankie[/name_u] and [name_m]Pete[/name_m].

[name_f]Petra[/name_f] [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f]!


I like the suggestion of [name_f]Petra[/name_f] and of using his birth stone or month! Initials are also a good idea.

[name_f]Penina[/name_f] nn [name_u]Penny[/name_u]

I like the suggestion someone already gave of using a name that represents him in some way!

One name I thought of when looking at [name_m]Peter[/name_m] [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] was [name_u]Perry[/name_u] (using the beginning from [name_m]Peter[/name_m] and the ending of [name_m]Gregory[/name_m]). It either could be name on it’s own, or it could be a nickname for another name, such as [name_f]Persephone[/name_f], [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u], or even [name_u]Piper[/name_u] or [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] (taking the “per” from the end).

Another idea could be to use a name/names that have the same or similar meaning to [name_m]Peter[/name_m] or [name_m]Gregory[/name_m]. [name_m]Peter[/name_m] means “rock” or “stone,” and [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] means “vigilant” or “a watchman.” Some names for girls with similar meaning are:

  • [name_f]Alaina[/name_f]: means “little rock” or “harmony”
  • [name_f]Alira[/name_f]: means “quartz stone”
  • [name_u]Casey[/name_u]: means “vigilant”
  • [name_f]Chantal[/name_f]: means “stone” or “boulder”
  • [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]: means “precious stone”
  • [name_f]Greer[/name_f]/[name_f]Grier[/name_f]: means “alert” or “watchful” and is also a variant of [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] (taken from [name_m]Gregor[/name_m])
  • [name_f]Jade[/name_f]: “stone of the side”
  • [name_f]Rochelle[/name_f]: means “little rock”
  • [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]: means “deep red precious stone”
  • [name_f]Sela[/name_f]/[name_f]Cella[/name_f]/[name_f]Cela[/name_f]: means “rock”
  • [name_u]Seneca[/name_u]: means “people of the standing rock”
  • [name_f]Tara[/name_f]: means “rocky hill”
  • [name_f]Taryn[/name_f]: means “rocky hill”

It’s a lovely name and a direct feminization of [name_m]Peter[/name_m].

I like to rearrange letters to see what I can come up with. [name_u]Honor[/name_u] initials are always a nice way too.
