    Zephyr to honor a Stephen?

    What would you think if you heard of a child being named Zephyr to honor a grandpa Stephen? Stephen is also my SO's middle name and I love the name but that is a lot of Stephen. I am reluctent to use the name Stephen (but not unwilling) because grandpa Stephen would be activly involved and it may be confusing. Does Zephyr work? How would you honor a Stephen? Last name sounds like Garris. Thanks!

    I wouldn't understand the connection. It just seems too far reaching to me to say it is honoring. You could always use Stephen as a middle name (which you probably already thought of that).

    I wouldn't get the connection honestly, they are not related etymologically and their sounds are different... Stephen would be nice in the middle.

    If you are looking for names that are related to Stephen here is some suggestions:

    Estavan
    Etienne
    Fane
    Stefan
    Stefano
    Steve
    Tahvo
    Tapani

    For Stephen's meaning "crown"

    I can see what you're getting at, but it doesn't quite work.

    Zephan, {a shortening of Zephaniah} is a bit closer to Stephen IMO, although they are two completely separate names.
