So as some of you may know, my DH really wants to name a hypothetical third DD after me. He had liked my name long before we met and an added bonus to him is that [name]Lucy[/name] is a family name on my side and there are multiple generations of [name]Lucy[/name]'s in my family tree, which he thinks would be great to pass down.
Here’s the problem. While I don’t hate my name, I’m not comfortable naming my child (hypothetical or not) after myself. I find it pretentious and I’d feel embarrassed introducing myself and my daughter with the same name. Basically, I’m really opposed to the idea but he won’t give up on it and as I pretty much had free reign naming the girls I feel I owe it to him to take his opinion into serious account.
I’ve been dropping hints to him how I think [name]Louise[/name]/[name]Louisa[/name] would honour my side of the family without directly using [name]Lucy[/name]. He’s warming up to the idea, at last.
So my question is, do you think a [name]Louise[/name]/[name]Louisa[/name] could honour a [name]Lucy[/name]? And which do you prefer, [name]Louise[/name] or [name]Louisa[/name]?
Thanks for any replies.
