Thread: Can Eugenia honor a Jean?

Can Eugenia honor a Jean?
My first question: can Eugenia be used as a substitute for Jean?
I'm very close with my grandmother, and her middle name is Jean. I would only use it as a middle name in honor if her...but I don't like Jean.
So, would Eugenia work?
what's your opinion on Opal Eugenia?
Any other first names that could go with Eugenia as a middle name?Teenberry. INFP. Ravenclaw. Passions: art, theatre, music, psychology, yoga, naming, and reading.
(Changing my name to Zoie Willow.)
For a future...

I think it works because you hear "jean" in the name, and I love Opal Eugenia. Still, as BonfareAzalea said, the most important thing is whether your grandmother sees that as honouring her.
Also, you could consider all variant names. Jean is related to John, so Jane, Joanne, Jeanne (usually pronounced the same but looks a bit prettier IMO), and even Siobhan would all work.Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ SarahPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

I think it works and I have considered it as well! My mom is named Jean. I like Jean a lot, but Eugenia feels like a better fit with some of the shorter names that I like:
I also like Eugenie.
I think Jean & Eugenia work best with names that feel very current. Some of the names I love that have a more dated aspect to them I wouldn't pair with them. Theresa or Veronica for example. I think names like that pair well with something more obviously 2014 or they can read like a 'mom name'. That's just my opinion though. Veronica Eugenie is rather nice, I just think Veronica Harper sounds more like a girl of today
