    Family Traditions

    Does anyone else have any family traditions?
    In my family our first name is Irish or Celtic (due to heritage) and our middle name isn't. But, to make things even more confusing, we use our non-irish name as our first name.

    My name is Nialla Eden but I go by Eden or Edie, for example, whilst my siblings are Niamh Cecily, Calhoun Ewan, Kady Larkin May & Caoimhe Rosalind but go by Cecily, Ewan, May and Rosalind.

    If you have a family tradition, will you follow it with your children?

    I really don't. Most names are Spanish or Italian.
    It used to be a tradition on my father's side to name the eldest son Jose, but my grandma refused to.
    There are names like Elena, Jose and Montserrat that repeat a lot in my tree.

    No real traditions, just some names that are usually repeated every generation. Although no one is very concerned about making sure it happens, I think its more of a coincidence than tradition.

    In someways I love having the tradition as it 'knits' us all together and feels lovely, but sometimes it gets confusing as to wether people call me Eden or Nialla. I think I'll probably be continuing with the tradition!

    Neither side of my family really has any traditions; I think most just picked what names they liked. My grandparents named my dad after my grandpa, but it stopped at him b/c my dad didn't went to have a kid that would be the third. I think the only one who has continued a tradition is my aunt. My grandma, aunt, and niece all have the same middle name.

    I am currently pregnant with baby number two so haven't started any traditions of my own, but have thought about it. My daughter's first name is Latin, middle is Welsh, and baby number two's first name is going to be Welsh. I've thought about whatever origins his middle name is going to be, also being the same origins for eventual baby number three's first name etc, but not sure yet. So as an example: 1-Latin+Welsh, 2-Welsh+Greek, 3-Greek+Slavic, 4-Slavic+Nordic(just as an example).
