Some people find it unusual that my DD being a female is named after her father. Are you (as a female) or your daughter named after your father? Do you know a female who is named after her father? Please share :)

Are we talking first or middle or whole name? my oldest daughter is named after her father Nicholas..her middle name is Nichole. Does that count?

No on either count, but I don't think it's that weird, depending on the name.

Yes! That's exactly what I'm talking about. A variation of the father's name incorporated into the daughter's name.

Off topic but I was listening to the radio a WHILE back and it was about strange name trends.



A woman called in because her father's name was Buck. Her mother's name was Fawn. They named her Bambi :lol:

I joke with DH one day that if we ever decide to have another child and it's a boy, let's name him Donovan :lol:

In a way. DH's name is Joseph, goes by Joe. DS's name is Lucas Joseph, so with DD we wanted to kind of keep the same trend and give her a variant of DH's name. We named her Eliana Jolie. I also loved the name Jolie and it's origin and meaning.
