    Question How to honour Derek?

    I really want to honour my father-in-law Derek with our first baby's name. Problem though, I don't really like the name Derek. I think it's a bit dated and sounds like an 'old man' name. Are there any other ways to honour Derek? (For boys or girls.)

    Use it as a middle name. Or maybe shorten to Eric.

    Maybe use his middle name? Or use Eric, or something with the sound in. Or if you reverse Derek you get Kered which sounds like Kerry with a D on so maybe Kerry D?

    Just using the D initial in one of the names would honor him, or you could possibly use Derek's middle or surname if either works better for you.
