I've never heard of the "combining grandparents' names to make a brand new name" tradition. The possibilities seem...terrifying.
You are so right -- my grandfathers were: Elmer and Lloyd. Thankfully my parents do this. My brother could have been:

Lloymer
Elmoyd

And poor ds would have had it any better: Lyle and Ralph (any wonder we didn't reach back into the family for boys' names?)

Lalph.
Ryle (ok that's not sooo bad)

Yep, the pool chemical.

I think it must be tricky to make new names combining grandparent's names. I don't see it really working with a lot of names.

Elizabeth & Alan=
Elizalan
Alabeth
Alanabeth
Elilan
Elanzabet


Roberta & David=
Robavid
Robid
Daberta
Daverta
Davrob

Elizabeth & Roberta=
Elizerta
Elberta
Robeth
Elizabert
Elerta

David & Alan=
Dalan
Alvid
Davan
Dalvid

My grandmothers are called Elaine and Marion - I could choose "Marine"!! Not so bad!

I love this thread, some of the name combinations are too good!

My son's grandfathers are Jay and Gordon, so we could've named him Jaydon and been very trendy, but I think both grandfathers would have been displeased! My dad's neighbor named her baby Caden almost two years ago, and he is still talking about what a weird and silly name it is and how there are plenty of "normal" names available.

My grandmothers were Janette and Louise. I can just imagine being named Janise and saying, "No, not Janice, Jan-eez," all my life. But better that than Lounette, which sounds like either a small high window (lunette) or a young female loon or a menstrual cup. Even Lounette would be better than Cloureen.

Back on topic, the name is horrible and it would be thoughtless to name their daughter chlorine and have her deal with the jokes her entire life. (or until she's old enough to legally change it)

Hopefully someone will give them a reality check.
I much PREFER my DH to wear socks with his sandals

Back on topic, I say NO to Cloureen. FWIW, I like unique names.

No joking.... I'm being absolutely 100% truthful. Masterdiamond was one of my students during my first year of teaching. He went by Diamond (which isn't nearly as bad).
A lovely women that I once knew named her DD Tapioca, her other children were Empress and Casanova.

Oooh, my grandmas are Bonna and Phyllis, so I could have been Phonna or Bollis. My grandfathers are Richard and Richard, so if I had been a boy I could have been... Richard (actually, that really was the boy name my parents had picked out).

My kids could have been Vancy or Nacki (Nancy and Vicki) or Allven or Stellen (Steven and Allen - hey, Stellen's cool!)

Marley, obviously.

Is that really worse than explaining to the entire country that Jeanne is not "Gee-Ann" but "Jean" in French? Janise is pretty. Reminiscent of anise, which I like.
