DH was telling me his grandparents names yesterday and for some reason I fell in love with his Grandmas name. It was Alta... Not sure how to really spell it but I love it. Maybe thinking to use it for a middle name?

like the beauty store "Ulta?" I'm not a fan, only because that store is the first thing I think of. But if you like it, go for it.

It's not horrible, but I prefer Alma or Alba. :) Alta does kindof remind me of the store.

Not sure, didnt think to ask that one. But I am going to now. I would love to use our parents names or middle names some way when we do have a baby. And I am loving the older names right now. I think Alta as a middle name would work.

It's okay and honoring people is always nice.
