    only child + honor names

    so my SO and I have decided that when we are ready to have children that we ideally want to stop at one. This will of course be a few years away but it's already got me thinking about naming scenarios. The biggest question I have is about honor names: to use or not to use. Since there would only be one kid to name, I feel as though choosing an honor name from one side of the family would be unfair to the other side of the family. There's no option of "this baby will be named for your side and the next will be named for my side". If we decided on using an honor name, I would prefer to use one only for the middle spot and to only have one middle name. So in order to be fair and avoid any possible upset feelings is it better to just skip an honor name all together and just choose two names we both adore? Has any one else dealt with this? Any opinions and thoughts are appreciated!

    If you had grandparents (for example) you wanted to honor and their names started with the same letter, you could use that letter to find a name. Otherwise, it's probably best to go with names you love so there isn't any bitterness on either side.

    Yeah unfortunately we have no shared family names or initials. The only name that we both like that would honor both sides are Lucy Josephine or Josie Lucille (Lucy/Lucille-my side, Josephine/Josie-his) but nothing for a little boy which stinks because I would love to honor my grandpa

    I have 1 and that's all I am having. We just picked a name we both loved.
