    WDTY of our combos!?

    Hello Berries,

    My boyfriend and I finally came up with two combos we really like. Let me know what you think and if you have any other combos with the same vibe they are always welcome. We are hoping to conceive this year!

    Maverick Leo- Leo is my grandfather/poppy's name he was given while he was serving our country in WW2 because no one could pronounce his Italian name. Now that he has passed away I knew it was a given to use his name in one of our name combos.

    Anton Grey- Anton is my boyfriends middle name, he is a JR so his father has the same middle and my boyfriends passed Great grandfather has that as a middle name as well. So it is a family name from his side.

    Thank you!

    I prefer Anton Grey of the two, but I love the family reasons behind Leo. Any possibility of using Leo and Anton together? Leo Anton or Anton Leo (as pp suggested).

    (Also, I'm so curious about what given name belonged to your grandfather, Leo. Would you be willing to share it?)

    I never thought of using Leo and having Anton Leo instead of Grey. I definitely like that combo as well and it is representing both sides.

    His name was Aloysius. He was given the name after Saint Aloysius which was an Italian aristocrat who became a member of the Society of Jesus. And while still a student at the Roman College, he died as a result of caring for the victims of an epidemic. I find that very interesting about the Saint since my grandfather was a very caring, loving, selfless person and very much into faith. Plus serving his country you have to care for others around you in terrible times.

    Also Back then people could not pronounce names at all. Just like how our family members last names were changed when they arrive at Ellis Island. I have no idea where his fellow army mates came up with Leo but that is what I always knew him as other than Poppy lol

    Exactly! This happened a great deal in my family too (especially in the Polish and Italian lines), which is why I was curious to see how close to the original it was. For example, my great-grandmother was Annunziata, and became Nancy. Bronislava became Bertha. Liboria became Lillian. And somehow, Flaminio became Flemming and Calogero became James.
