The nameberry question of the week: Have you discovered any great names on your family tree?
Have you found inspiration in any previous generation’s first, middle or surnames? Have you researched your ancestry on the web in hopes of coming upon a wonderful name?
Have you already used or are you planning to use any ancestral names for your children, and if so, in first or middle place? How far back did you go? Do you feel that this will forge a meaningful connection between your child and her roots?
Did you consider using a variation–a nickname, a modernization, a different spelling?
