[name]Hi[/name] everyone - I am due with my second child later this summer. My first daughter’s name is [name]Maren[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and if this baby is a girl, one of the names we are considering is [name]Linden[/name], which is a family name (mother-in-law’s maiden name). We live in the Southeastern US, and it’s very common practice to use family names as first names here.
What are your thoughts on the name [name]Linden[/name]? Our top combo right now is [name]Linden[/name] [name]Grace[/name], but the middle name is not set in stone. Would it bother you having two names with the same ending (-en)? The only other name we can agree on right now is [name]Elle[/name] [name]Catherine[/name], but it still doesn’t feel like the one.
