How to Honor a Nancy?
We are expecting our second daughter in Feburary, big sister is Rylee. We would love to honor a family member named Nancy, but I don't like the name out right as a First or Middle name. I would love to hear suggestions on alternatives to the name Nancy in a way to honor her. First and/or middle names we are currently considering to go with it are:
Thanks for your help!!

#1 Nancy is a diminuitive of Ann... So you could use another Ann derivative or name containing Ann.
#2 Nancy means 'Grace', so you could use another name meaning 'Grace'
The names I like are:
#3 Find a similar sounding name
Nicky (this is all I can think of but its not the best example)I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

I love all of @giinkies' suggestions! Exactly what I was going to post. Nancy is a form of Anne, so I would probably just pick an Anne variation that you liked, and use that. Or even use Nancy's initials, since Nina is on your list. For example, of she's Nancy Louise, you could do Nina Lorelei, or even Nina Louise, or whatever.
