    Help to Honor Our Parents/Grands

    I absolutely love the idea of honoring our grandparents and our parents in the names of our children, as middle names. I am being a bit picky though - I don't want to use their actual names (because I want more interesting names). I want to use a name that reminds us of their name. For example, I already have an idea for one of our grandfathers - his name was William so we would like to use Willa as a middle name if we have a girl.

    Here are the names we would like to honor:

    William (I'd be interested to hear other ideas besides Willa)
    Michael
    Harry
    Alfred
    Mary Jane
    Shirley
    Agnes
    Heather
    Sheila
