how to honor the family indirectly
It's important to me to honor family members with my kids names, but I am having trouble making it work! I want to use names similar to family names, but not exactly the same. I would love suggestions for what I can use similar to these names.
Mary Catherine - Marianne, Cate, Catalina, ?
Shirley Grace - ... no clue.
Ella Mae- Eleanor, Ellie, Elodie, ?
Lisa Renee - Elisabeth, ?
these will only be used as middle names with the exception of Elisabeth nn Elise, and maybe Cate as a nn for Charlotte.
