Hamilton Witte/Witt??? Flower. 3 kids; Rockville, Maryland 1220 posts

I'm not pregnant, but if I have another boy I was thinking about naming him Hamilton Witt or Witte. My husband's grandfather was in WWII. He was a bomber pilot for the 8th Army Air Force in 1944. He was only there for about 6-9 months, but in that short time he went on 36 missions, including the bombing of Berlin and Normandy. He was pretty much a part of the main bombardment group in Europe during the war. He passed away 2 years ago and no one else in the family has used his name for any grandchild or great-grandchild. However, his name is Hamilton Pennywitte. The middle name was his great-grandmother's maiden name as well as his own father's middle name. Pennywitte is a bit much for us so we thought about shortening it to Witte or Witt.....maybe even Whitt???? I don't know. Or it could be switched around to Witte/Witt Hamilton. Which way do you think is better?



This is a picture of my husband and his grandfather. They were almost exactly the same age in this pic.

I think I'm liking the Witte spelling best.

Wow. They look a lot a like. I don't mind Witt as a first name. I don't like hamilton as a first name. It's quite a name with no good nicknames..ham? Hammy? It would make a strong middle though!! I love when people honor family members.

I know....that's one thing I wasn't sure about because of Ham. His grandpa always was called Ham and I'm assuming he didn't mind because even his wife called him that.

Well if you don't mind him being nicknamed ham then go for. I just really don't like Ham.
