[name]Just[/name] to get this out of the way, I am in no way, shape or form having children anytime soon… But I’m a name nerd, so this question has been bugging me for a bit.
I’ve always been a strong believer in using family names for children. Everyone in my family has a name that has significant family ties, and if I ever have kids, I want them to have these ties as well.
I was looking through my family’s Family Tree Book, and I noticed that my great-grandmother’s maiden name was Winham.
I immediately fell in love. To me, Winham sounds relaxed, yet upper class and sophisticated. What do you all think of it? (It’s pronounced [name]Win[/name]-um, at least by our family). The only thing I’m worried about, if I ever have a son to use it, is -ham. But, I think it’ll be ok.
Another quick question, I love [name]Jack[/name] and [name]John[/name]. There are about 21304983241 Johns in my family tree, and I think [name]Jack[/name] would be a good way to honor them in a first name. Question: Would it be odd to have [name]Jack[/name] as a first name for one child, and [name]John[/name] as a middle name for another?
Obviously, I’m thinking hypothetically and waaay in advance.
Thanks in advance!
