Honestly, we just liked the name. But we got the idea off of the wine bottle.
DD1 (Fiona Leigh) - Middle name is after me
DS1 (Eric Logan) - First name is "after" Eric the Red, but mostly just because we liked the name. His uncle suggested the name because of Eric the Red though.
DD2 (Colleen Elizabeth) -Middle name is after DH's older sister
And then soon-to-be-born DS2 (William Otis) - First name is from my grandpa (middle name) and DH's grandpa both dead (along with a few different more distant relatives) . Middle name is after DH's middle name, my dad's middle name, my grandpa and DH's great-grandpa. (this is if we stick with this middle name. lol)
I voted "after living relatives", but could have added historical figure and late relative.
A daughter will be Serenity Faith. We like the name and we like that it's a virtue name. Plus, the Serenity Prayer has special meaning to us.
#1 Stephanie Nicole... the first was inspired by a friend of my mom's when I was a child, someone who meant a lot to me. Not named AFTER, but inspired by. Nicole was my best friend in high school.
#2 Alexander Lee... I just love Alexander. Lee is his father's middle name (and my brother's).
#3 Kimberly Grace... Again, just names I liked.
#4 Thomas Kieran... Same thing. Kieran is ethnically inspired, to honor the Irish part of his heritage. His father picked Thomas because it can be pronounced in English and Spanish both.
#5 Gabriella Diane... DH picked the first, and I love it so I agreed. Diane is after Diane Lane, the actress.
#6 Nathaniel Lucas... Nathaniel after actor Nathan Fillion, Lucas after George Lucas.

My 14 year old DD: My late grandmother (first name) and my ex-h's late grandmother (middle name). Same concept as my DS for both english and Hebrew names.
My 7 year old DS: we went a different route. First name, we chose one DH and I both really liked. Middle name, same as DH's middle name. Hebrew name, named after DH's grandfather.
All in all, it's quite a handle. but I love it! I hope he does, too...
DS1 we had a hard time coming up with a name for (though we did pick his name before we decided to ttc). We ended up going through tv shows and movies and such and ended up naming him after one of the x-men and a demon from Charmed. Not because we wanted to name him after those characters but because we liked the name.
DS2 just has a name I like.
If we have a DS3 his first name will be after a literary character I like but because I like the name. Not because I adore the character. His middle name will be after someone my dh served in Iraq with on his 3rd deployment.
SAHM to Ninja Boy (6) and Monkey Man (4) .
DS1 first name is that of a saint, also the NN was a fictional character that I really liked. Middle name is DH's first name.
DS2 first name is that of a saint also and an old friend that I admired, MN is DH's middle name and the name of his favorite uncle.
Apparently doing it rong and ruining it for everyone, but I don't give a crap anymore.
DD 2: First name a biblical name middle name is my middle name
DS 1: First name after a book character middle name is a take on my first name.... I guess I really like my name
DS 2: First name is just one we liked but also happens to be biblical, middle name is after a manga character our oldest really liked
DD 3: My husband named her both first and middle after a song he really likes, he had the name picked out since I was pregnant with ds1.
and yes, I blog.
DD - first name is for a late friend, middle is for a living relative
DS - DD picked his first name, she was 2 years old and we liked it so we went with it. His middle name is for a late relative AND a living relative (family name)
DS2 - found his first name in movie credits, looked up the meaning and liked it. Middle name is for a late relative.
DD's middle name - is Chinese and hyphenated (generation name - given name). It is very important to me that to keep her Chinese heritage alive and so I continued my family's naming tradition. Her generation name like my own was decided thousands of years ago and her given name was chosen by my mother. I hope she will continue the naming tradition with her children.
