Mother's Maiden Name as Baby's First Name
Fathers' surnames are passed down to children all of the time, but what about continuing the Mother's family namesakes? Do you have a useable maiden name, or your mother's maiden name that you would pass down onto you child? If so, what is it and which sex would you use it for?
I named my daughter, Harper, my maiden name.
My mother's maiden name was Reed. I would totally use it for a boy.

When I marry - and IF I take my husband's surname - then my surname isn't really usable as a first name.
My mom's maiden name was Cooper, which I'd use as a middle name.♥ Margaret Mary ♥

My maiden name is Adams, so probably a little confusing at first when he would be introduced because Adam is a very popular first name so people would just assume. My one grandmothers maiden name is Parker which would blend into mainstream culture no problem. Most other names are very German (Wetzel, Bierhaus that sort of thing) and I wouldnt saddle a child which those...middle names perhaps.Married to my love since August 2001

My surname isn't fit all all as a first name, most Danish surnames aren't.
My mum's surname is Larsen though, I guess that could pass (would never do it though, I think it sounds stupid as a first name).Exporting beautiful old Danish names, exotic Greenlandic names and Greenlandic sibling names
